Thanks to Apex Fencing Academy for the opportunity for Ron to continue coaching when NCFDP had to close because of Covid. He continued the Zoom lessons until March of this year. Kriszti and Igor have been very supportive during difficult times. Coach became very close to the fencers and their families.
Thank you to Jim Kent and Henri Hall Gales for two+ years of weekly interaction, lessons, friendship support and assistance with chemo.
Dave Brown took Ron to wound care with Dr David Powel (also an alum) for over a year. https://www.healthgrades.com/physician/dr-david-powell-36bn3
Jen Hunt, alum ’04, organized the Russia trip in 05. When she got her Ph.D and moved to Australia, Coach and Susun’s house was her USA home base when she traveled. Ron considered Jen (as well Susun’s daughter Myah) a ‘Bonus daughter’.
