As the 3rd generation of barbers of the Finan Family Barbershop in downtown Hawley, Ron will be dearly missed by many. His memory will be kept alive through all his family and friends he knew and loved. His trips to town always took longer than planned because he knew literally everyone in town and would have to stop and chat. Known as the "Mayor," he loved to reminisce about the good 'ole days in Hawley. Ron also loved to bowl; as a member of the bowling leagues he would travel for tournaments in Atlantic City, Mobile, Alabama and Las Vegas. As Ron always said. "What happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas." Beyond bowling Ron loved his old cars, NASCAR and especially his #24 Jeff Gordon. Most of all Ron adored his town Hawley, PA. Every day at 1pm you could find him at the Hawley Diner enjoying "His" California Burger with a Coke. If he wasn't talking about Hawley, he would be bragging about his biggest pride and joy - his family. In some of what no one knew would be his last days, Ron had one of his best days. He had a "cousins" dinner at the Capri. He said, "He would be smiling for a while after the best evening all summer." It is not the length of life, but the depth of life. As Ron would always say, "I'm Home." Visitation will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 6, from 11 AM to 2 PM and 4 to 8:30 PM at Teeters' Funeral Chapel, 505 Church St., Hawley, PA.
