Ron Messerly receives the State Bar of Arizona Member of the Year Award, 2005

On December 29, Ron Messerly passed away. Among many other accomplishments, the Snell & Wilmer lawyer was honored by the State Bar of Arizona in 2005 as its Member of the Year. His obituary begins:

“Ronald Wayne Messerly, a diehard Arizona Cardinals fan, passed away on Thursday, Dec. 29, 2012 in Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona. He was 46. A giant kid at heart, Ron’s sense of adventure, his kindness, and his generosity live on.”

His complete obituary is here.

It was only this past November that I noted the death of another lawyer, Michael Mulchay. By terrible coincidence, Mike also was a State Bar co-Member of the Year, with Ron, in 2005.

Rest in peace.
