I worked with Ron Patel  in the Log office for 2 years.  I was the feature editor.  He was the main editor.  We worked on the Log and the Navigator yearbook.  Ron was a great guy, very brilliant writer and organizer.  He was very funny, if you got him going.   He went on to have a great future in the journalism. Field.  He became the first Asian American (Indian) to become an editor of a major newspaper.  He lived in Philadephia.  He was well known for helping young journalists with their careers.   He had a wife and 2 children.  He died of liver cancer around 2000.  Rest in Peace Ron, I have so many memories of the Log office, and I can still hear you singing  "The way you do the Things You Do".  Judy Eckford

I had no idea that Ron had died.  And of Liver Cancer.  My father died of the same thing at age 53.

Ron was such a very smart fellow and I enjoyed him very much as a classmate.  Actually I was looking forward to perhaps seeing him at our reunion.  I don't have a specific memory of him, but I do remember him as a dear and fun loving fella....usually with a straight face, but a big twinkle in his eye.  He always added a rich dimension to class.  I think we were in Mr.Lux's Advanced Reading/English class together.  My heart goes out to his wife and family.
