With great sadness we regret to announce the passing of our friend and colleague Ron Frisosky. Ron passed away peacefully at his home in Sarasota, Florida, in the company of his beloved wife of 47 years, Margo, his daughter, Jamie, her husband, Mark Lotz, and the two granddaughters of whom Ron was so proud.
Ron was born in Lansing Michigan on June 13, 1941. He attended Saint Mary's Academy and later Michigan State University. After serving in the National Guard, Ron became a partner in a chain of sporting goods stores specializing in bicycles and skis and, as an experiment, the then new Hobie Cat catamarans. This exposure to Hobie ignited Ron's life-long passion for sailing and soon Ron and Margo were regulars on the Michigan Hobie racing circuit.
