Today is not the day I celebrate or cherish because it was such an incredibly sad and heart breaking day for all that loved you so much. But it is a day that we always remember and take time to reflect on your life and the imprint you left in our hearts, because you taught us the most important lesson..................."Its Worth Every Breth"! I hope in your memory all of us that continue to love and miss you, take a moment today (and everyday) to be grateful and know the blessing that we get one more day.  Love you forever Ronzo!

Memorial Day 2018..
Eternal Thanks and Gratitude to All Our Veterans and Those that Served; to Those That Gave Their Lives So We Could Live Our Lives As "One Nation, Under GOD, with Liberty and Justice For All". Always Remembered, Always Loved.
Dad, Many Uncles, Lee, Greeno, T, Ernie, Bob, Jim B....think of you all often.
I know that Ronnie always felt "Patriotism" as a gift from God. Our entire family felt that way and most of the family still holds that feeling dear. MY family, Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters, Michelle, Justin and Ronnie..we all felt a closeness, admiration for those that would give it their all for others. That is what it is all about. To the folks that sacrifice everything....there is no greater act.."of giving your life for another".  WE are so fortunate..from where we came from and where we are going! All My Love..Chet/Pops

She was 25 and a friend of Jps crew in High School.Next were two of Jens friends. Their names are Nathan Zeller and David Mcgraw. Could you please watch over them and show them around up there Tell them they were loved and will be missed down here. It was unexpected and their probably scared. Thank You Ronnie. I Love You.

My most cherished memories of you Ronnie are how you could always make us smile and just have fun no matter where we were, at the Beach in Florida, Barb and Dans, California, just anywhere. We are so very lucky to have these, because no matter how crazy times get, how hard, how sad, there you are and here come the smiles. Thanks for the smiles honey, thanks for such happy memories . Love you Ronnie.

May 23, 2017: Happy 39th Birthday Ronnie. Life passes faster every day. The events of this life continue to surprise me. I take so much for granted that I forget the true gifts, the rewards of this "physical" stage of my life. I find myself re-living moments. Laughing out loud with happiness. That "silent" time for tears of disbelief. What an experience. Like to change things if I could? Yes, for sure. But, then I realize, the "plan" would be broken. Faith in the perfection of all that exists. Stronger than ever. All my love Ronnie...Pops

Recent stories

Dustin Brown

January 22, 2018

Dustin and his brother Brandon and sisters Stacy and Seanna..all grew up with Ronnie and Justin when the Brion family returned to Ithaca, NY.  Of course, the boys loved hockey, lacrosse, football.  All four boys excelled in their sport and Dustin, as we know, went on to the NHL and joined the LA Kings.

After Ronnie's passing, the artwork of Ronnie was shared with family and friends.  Ronnie's character, pictured blowing a big bubble, was inscribed "It's Worth Every Breath".  Dustin took heart in the drawing and commissioned an artist to "create" a four foot by six foot "lego" structure depicting the drawing.  It now hangs in Dustin's office in his California home.

Decisions

June 3, 2015

Cayuga Medical Center

Ronnie was having a hard time breathing.  The doctors could not determine what to do.  Ronnie's Cancer team of doctors were in Rochester, at Strong Memorial Hospital.  Many folks did not want Ronnie to be moved to Rochester.  That involved a helicopter ride, which meant that Ronnie would have to be intibated. Ronnie took the decision making away from everyone. While discussions were underway, I walked into Ronnie's cubicle.  He was signing the permission papers for the ride.  I just looked at him.  Ronnie said, "Pops, It is the only thing I can do."  I just said, "I know".

Strong Hospital

The decision was made to induce Ronnie into a coma so that the treatment could be rendered easier and Ronnie's system could respond easier. My last talk to Ronnie ended with him pulling me to him.  He stared at me real hard and then hugged me around the neck..tight.  He whispered in my ear, "I am ok. I am ready. It is all ok."  I wonder to this day what he meant by "I am ready".  For what?  I now know what Ronnie meant.  He knew that his Mother and I were going to be asked to make an impossible decision in a few days. Ronnie already knew and was confident of the decision we would make. He was telling me that it was ok.  "I am ready".  I mean to ask him some day. 

Larry Hoppen - Orleans

February 2, 2015

Larry Hoppen was a founding member of the band Orleans.   I met Larry when he was a music major at Ithaca College in 1968-69. Larry came to the Band "Big Daddy and the Duquenes".  He brought his friends that became the horn section of Teddy Antrum's (Big Daddy) band. We had many fun and great times together. Teddy, Wink Warren, Howie O'Dell, Larry and friends. The band grew into a favorite in Central New York and the Ithaca/Cortland areas. Larry also became a close friend of the Brion Family.  Mom and Dad Brion grew to love the "music and band" impact on our family as we grew through the times.  They really enjoyed Larry and his music.  I will never forget Larry..so talented. His legacy will live on..so much more to give.   Chet Brion
