Antonio, Boston, Buffalo,
Miami and New
RAB President/CEO Erica Farber said in a weekend eMail to RAB staff members:
“It is with a heavy heart that I share with you all that we lost our dear, sweet Ron Ruth. Early this morning [Saturday, 11/16] he went into cardiac arrest. CPR was performed all the way to the Emergency Room but unfortunately they were unable to save him. His progress over the past several days has been just shy of a miracle, but sadly the outcome was not what we had been suspecting.”
Funeral arrangements are pending.
