Ron loved his family with all of his heart and was happiest and liveliest during family gatherings, where he would play his guitar and everyone would sing along. He was a caring friend and manager who had an enormous heart. Ron Campos was a man devoted to his wife and family. He worked hard and gave all that he could so that his family could live comfortably and happily.
Ron lived by his word and was an inspiration to all who knew him. For those he left behind, he will be forever missed, but now, Nikki Barr will finally have time with his grandfather.
