It is with a heavy heart that I inform the temple family of the death of Lt. Col. Ron Ledwitz who passed away to eternal rest on Sunday, August 11 - Tisha B'Av - in the morning.
Ron was a dedicated member of our temple who was at every event over the years. He was a loving and devoted father, generous and giving of himself at all times, often without wanting to be recognized. Ron was a loving husband to Meryl who is bereft of her dear Ron. His children, Wendi, Karen and Michael and stepson Josh and grandchildren Lila and Preston Bartolomeo, Wyatt and Oliver Ledwitz and Anna and Ryan Linder mourn deeply at his passing. Our condolences extend to all of them.
Ron was a soldier through-and-through. He loved the Army and his men. He had seen his share of combat but rarely spoke about it. His admiration for this country ran deep and his authentic patriotism was inspiring.
The funeral arrangements are as follows:
Wednesday, August 14: 11 AM Temple Beth Miriam for the funeral
Interment immediately following the funeral at General Doyle Military Cemetery
Shiva on Wednesday begins at 5 PM with minyan at 7:30 PM. Call the temple for the address, please, 732-222-3754
Shiva on Thursday 12-9 PM. Minyan on Thursday at 7:30
His memory will always be a blessing and his light will never be extinguished from our hearts.
Rabbi Cy Stanway
