My deepest condolences to the Welborn family. I worked with Ron when he was the Director of Manufacturing and I was a computer programmer in the Data Processing Department at the Warren Featherbone Company. I enjoyed knowing him during our time at Warren Featherbone and he always treated me with kindness. He was a good man and I will always remember him with great affection.
