So sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was the director of The TV-40 Dance Party, of which I was a co-host. I loved his professionalism and perfection. He was the best in the business... and such a nice, all around guy! He will always be remembered! My deepest sympathy to his dear family.

For all the years I did the WHYN/TV 40 daily live show, THE BARBARA BERNARD SHOW, Ronnie Langevin was my director. His perfectionism brought me awards and high ratings and in all the years there was never a quarrel or harsh word between us. He was a gentleman with a delightful sense of humor and he survived some difficult times thanks to Paula and his children, all of whom he loved so dearly. Just a short time ago Ronnie and Paula were at my 90th birthday party where others with whom he worked at Channel 40 were so happy to connect up with him. I had a chance to once again tell him what I told him continuously that HE WAS THE BEST.
