Many of us remember Mr Polk as the big guy with a big heart. Many of us band students stole or tried to still the Barton he kept in his tree, along the navy rotc path.... IT was a challenge for each class. He was the voice for the band during the half time shows.....I do not know when he retired but being a member of the Class of 1976 I was lucky to have him as one of my best teachers. My sympathies to his family

Ron was a great person, teacher, and band director. He had red and blue in his blood.

Never a disrespectful comment about any one. I graduated with him and was a sincere and fund student colleague.

My family, wife, and I offer our condolences and sympathies to his wonderful family. We will miss him truly.
