Yes, he did go to WHHS. He died of a brain anuerism. Very sad. Had two young children and a sister that just passed away not even 6 months ago! Please pray for the family!

I'm sure you don't know me, but both of my boys went to WHHS and I knew him thru them. If I'm right Billy was a brother and he was close to my son that passed away in 2004. In fact after my son got sick and was wheelchaired Billy came to our house picked my son up and took him to O'Charlie's and they would watch games. I have been forever thankful to him for that. My son always said people stare at you when your in a wheelchair and Billy got him thru that and out in public. My heart goes out to the family, losing one child is bad enough I couldn't imagine losing two.

I went to school w/Ronnie and I knew his sister, as well. It's a sad thing that their parents are having to deal with and my heart breaks for them.

1tfigures - jump to conclusions much? No one was bashing the family or the deceased. Someone was wanting to know what happened. I don't think that Working Mom would be wanting to call the family and ask - that would be rude. As bad as Topix sometimes is, it is also a way to find out what has happened to someone you think you might know, so that you can either give condolences later on or maybe make plans to attend the wake.

Hey people can ask questions here, if asking questions pisses you off then avoid the topic and move on.

Asking questions doesn't piss me off.. when people are truely concerned. On this site, when you put someones name out there, some one regardless if they new this man or not, will always post something negative and THAT is my point. Ronnie HATED topix because of this very reason. So if me, a friend, expressing concern about his name on this site pisses you off, then Mr Cross Bones,you move on to the next topic. If that is me "jumping to conclusions" then it is what it is. I'm just concerned. He has children old enough to know of this site.

Then why didn't you inquire before leaving a nasty response. I was truly concerned.

Because it's the nature of this site.. that's all. My initial response was to protect him. So to you I do apoligize but I don't apologize for my concern for his name on this site.

I don't know anyone involved, just saw his picture and obituary in the SJ. What a shame to have a life cut so short. Let's all pray for him and his family.

I wasn't trying to instigate anything other than concern for the family - I'm sure that the other people on this thread are/were doing the same. I understand your wanting to protect, but it could've been handled with a little more tact, is all I'm trying to say. I'm truly sorry for the family - having lost 2 children is something a parent should NEVER have to do.

If you were "truly concerned" why did you not contact his family instead of putting his name up here on this evil site? This only gives people a chance to drag his name through mud that did not know him.
