    TO STEVETOM AND ENTIRE VIET FAMILY. MY THOUGTHS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU. KNOW THAT YOUR DAD HAD A REAL IMPACT ON MY LIFE. HE WAS MY FIRST BASEBALL COACH (ROCKDALE) SOME 35 PLUS YEARS AGO. I STILL HAVE THE UNIFORM. HE GAVE ME A PASSION FOR BASEBALL THAT AND 30 LASHES WITH A LICORICE WHIP AND A NICKNAME BARNYARD THAT WOULD FOLLOW ANOTHER 10 YRS. I ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM SAYING THAT WAS TOO EASY WHEN A BALL WOULD GO THRU MY LEGS. I COULD ALWAYS MAKE THE HARD PLAYS I GUESS. HE WOULD BE MY ONLY COACH THRU PONY LEAGUE. BUT MORE THAN A COACH TEACHING LIFE SKILLS ALONG THE WAY. THANKS MR. VIET FOR ALL THE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES.

    THANKS COACH

    I'm very sorry that Ron has passed away and I'm sorry I was not able to find him sooner.



    We searched on the internet for him several times. He was a very good friend while we were in the Air Force together.



    Again I'm So Sorry.

    Hey:

    Often we remember people we care about from the memories we have of them. Though I have known Ron for close to twenty years and remember much about him: how ornery and hardheaded he was how loud he could be how he could keep me on the edge of my seat with his humor and his look-you-in-eye-conviction of things he was passionate about including golf football baseball his heart Barb and especially his children. When we live our lives we can easily look back on stuff that we wish we could different; that’s natural. But Ron I have to tell you from my heart the legacy you leave with us your children really is something to be proud of. Parents can and will tell their children what to do but those of us that are parents know that children will most often learn by watching. They watched Ron work struggle play and raise a family. They watched him do things right some things wrong but mostly right. We who know Ron and Barb’s children would be hard pressed to find anyone funnier smarter more passionate or driven more successful in living (and with conviction) than his children including their spouses. He affected them too. He knows he did good. Way to go Ron. Way to go. And......thank you.



    Rest in Peace

    I have only fond memories of childhood times with Mr. Veit and the family. This young red-headed farmboy was exposed to the real world and the big town of Maquoketa through time spent with Steve and the family. Mr. Veit drafted me on their little league team and taught me how to pitch. I had my first skiing experience when Mr. Veit took me and the boys to Chestnut Mountain. The boys also exposed me to about every sport imaginable especially great games of whiffle ball in their back yard! Mr. Veit was always so supportive with everything we did. My thoughts and prayers go out to Steve and the family. Thanks Mr. Veit for many great memories of my younger days. Rest in peace.

    To all of your family our deepest sympathy and prayers. I still can hear coach Veit calling me Schmidloker just brfore I was about to pitch a game. He was a great coach and caring individual especially for his baseball kids.

    Fats was the cool dad. He was never without a smile on his face or a joke to tell. He loved people . He could make you laugh no matter what. He was so proud of his family . Fats was the kind of guy who had nothing but friends... he will be sadly missed and thought of with a smile.

    Dear Aunt Barbara and cousins Ronelle Lisa Tom and Steve:



    I have very fond memories of my Uncle Ronnie. I?ll always remember him as a fun-loving and charismatic man full of enthusiasm for life. The Uncle Ronnie I knew was glad to share his big smile and deep laugh. He told great stories and entertained all and he always made an impression.



    I am very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.



    Best wishes

    Mark

    A fond memory: I met Ron on the range at overland golf coarse with his son Steve. He proceeded to show me the WIND UP! (which was Ron's pattented swing in golf) a little unorthodox but WOW amazing results!. He tought his son Steve his new swing along with the split grip. Steve probably would have made a fortune with golf but Steve became a Skier instead. Ron's other son Tom also could not make Ron's golf moves famous because his pants always seemed too (heavy) when he played.



    Ron never followed the heard he blazed his own path. I am grateful to have met him and feel privileged to be friends with his Kids.

    Thanks

    Ron

    It has taken me a few days to gather my thoughts and compose in my head what I wanted to express to all of Ron's family. I have such fun memories of Lisa's dad - he taught me how to drive a stick shift in the parking lot of the church. We drove that red Gremlin around in hundreds of circles before I got the hang of it. He was always upbeat always funny and always one of the kids rather than a parent. He called all of us Sister and I can still hear his husky laughter. Even though we knew he was ill and we knew he was in pain it's still so very hard. Dads are supposed to be around forever. I am thinking of all of you during this difficult time. Know that he would want you to remember the good times and that he is up in heaven laughing and hollering at the umpires!!

    May fond memories ease your pain-

    Sherri

    Thomas L Baird on Dec 14, 2006

    I was very sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was so good to me and all the neighborhood kids when we were young playing baseball in your backyard. He was always trying to get me to play baseball instead of softball and spent hours teaching me how to pitch. He was a great guy. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    LOIS ANN (ROLLING) FISCHER on Dec 14, 2006

    BARB RONELLE LISA TOM AND STEVE: YOUR FAMILY IS IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS DURING THIS TIME. YOU HAVE MY SYMPATHY. I AM ELMER ROLLING'S GRANDDAUGHTER. AND DON AND MARY ANN ROLLINGS DAUGHTER. I REMEMBER THE TIMES THAT I STOPPED AT YOUR HOUSE WHEN YOU LIVED IN MAQUOKETA. A LOT OF THINGS HAVE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS BUT YOUR OLD HOUSE IS STILL THERE.

    IN SYMPATHY NO TIME ON EARTH IS LONG ENOUGH TO SHARE WITH THOSE WE LOVE OR TO PREPARE OUR HEARTS FOR GOODBYE. MAY TIME SOFTEN THE PAIN UNTIL ALL THAT REMAINS IS THE COMFORT OF MEMORIES AND THE LOVE YOU SHARED.

    AGAIN YOUR FAMILY IS IN MY THOUGHTS.

    Dorothy Dunham on Dec 14, 2006
