Ron Williams: July 30, 1947 – June 26, 1975 R.I.P.

Dear NPPA Supporters:

Ron would have celebrated his 64th birthday.

He would have been retired by now, perhaps pursuing a second career like many of us, or maybe enjoying his life with sports, hobbies, travel, and probably spoiling the heck out of his grandchildren, as most of us certainly do.

But none of that happened because of a chance encounter crossing paths with a host of American Indian Movement (AIM) cowards at Jumping Bull on Pine Ridge in the summer of ’75.

Peltier at the moment is complaining because he, again, couldn’t follow the rules and wound up in the hole for six months.

For that one time each day that he’s allowed an hour outside his cell and into the sunlight, perhaps Ron in looking down.

Ron, from what I’ve learned about him, probably would be benevolent and show Peltier and the others mercy.

I personally wouldn’t be that kind.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire William’s family and all of Ron’s friends and Bureau associates.
