Just remembering my manager Ron who along with his partner Dan and their little son David who lost their lives on 9/11. He was always cheerful and positive and loved his son so much! He would always say to us, " Miss me?"....YES wo do

You never knew who I became. You never knew how I was at work when I received the calls, you never knew that I drove to your house at night... sat there and cried in my car. You never knew how much I appreciated everything. But I did. I will love you guys always. -Eric

I do not know Ronald Gamboa, but on this 10th anniversary of his untimely death I will be running in a memorial 911k race with his name on my bib, and as I run I will be thinking of his friends and family who have suffered an irreperable loss.

its so hard to imagine that its been ten years since we lost you Ron.... I still remember your last phone call at the store... Most of the times its so hard to think about you guys and not cry. Ten years seems like a long time but its not.. I think about you guys everyday.. I know that you are up there looking down on all us and giving us your blessings, but believe me we rather have you here with us.... Thank you for your kindness, jokes and most of all your friendship...We miss you greatly.... Love Sergio...

Ronald I still think about you all of the time...you will never be forgotten!

I miss you so much. I never wrote or acknowledged what happened because it's hard to deal with. I never got to thank you for everything you did. I didn't realize it because I was young and naive, and I thought you didn't know what you were talking about. I thank you for giving me the courage to become what I am today. It may not be much yet, but I feel I've finally found myself and can wake up every day ready for the world, and I'm finally happy. Mom doesn't understand; neither does Winnie, or anyone in the family. I'm scared because I feel alone with no one there to guide me. I remember our late-night phone calls: me, you, and Dan trying to make me understand that what I am is okay, and not trying to tell me but help me find who I was. I also didn't get what you guys were trying to do, but now as I look back, I wish I had that now. I know if you were here you would understand and be here for me. Regardless of anything, I promise I'll take care of mom, Winnie, and the rest of the family. Anyway, I wrote this so that you would know that I thank you every day.... So thank you, Ronald. I miss you and love you even though it wasn't ever said. But you know how our family is.... Actions speak louder than words, and now, a little too late, I can finally hear.... Please watch over everyone and keep everyone safe. I love you, and I'll see you again someday....

Ron, David, Daniel,

I'll never forget our times together in W.H. We miss you and someday we'll see you again. xokim&lou...what about me?

I will never forget you, my first grade crush. I remember going to your house for Dinner, and your family was so big, I was scared and cried. Through the years I would see you at football games or with mutual friends. You were always sweet, funny and sincere. I have thought of you often before and after 9/11. I am sure Heaven is a much better place with you and your family in it. Best wishes and prayers for you always. P.S. You ARE beautiful.

I can't believe it's been eight years since we lost Ron... Today is a hard day for everybody, especially for those of us that knew him... I know that he is up there looking down on us... and like always making fun us... I miss his jokes and his sincerity and his true friendship.... God bless his family..

*** Posted by Sergio Pelaez on 2009-09-11 ***

I will always remember your kindness and friendship.

Ronald was one of my closest and dearest friends during high school. We shared many good times together just hanging out at Whispering Hills. It broke my heart to read that he, his partner and his son were killed. Memories of him are in my heart. My thoughts go out to the family.

Ron was super-intelligent, affable, inviting, kind, loving & FABULOUS! All those who were lucky to work with him at the Gap miss him greatly. He was hard-working and driven and was planning to come into work on that fateful day--to get the store in order after a large shipment of a new line. He was extremely hands-on and always had nice things to say and a good joke, or two, to brighten the sometimes horribly long work-day. One of his last calls was to his Stock Manager advising when he'd arrive to help them out with their enormous task that day.
We were, of course, shocked and deeply saddened by the horrific events of September 11th, and feel that those bound for home in Los Angeles on the doomed flights have been overshadowed by those who perished while working inside the towers/Pentagon and the firefighters who courageously tried to save lives. It should be remembered that Los Angeles lost wonderful citizens, neighbors, co-workers, sons, brothers, & friends as well. Ron and his family, both Daniel & David, are missed and loved dearly and remain in our hearts and minds. They were a loving family who would want us all to continue to live our lives in happiness; just as they did. Heaven is an even brighter place with their presence. WE MISS YOU, RON!

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner.
