SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | APRIL 11-17, 2019 NORTH COUNTY 11 On January 25, 1995, at age 56 while skiing in Santa Fe with his daughter Jennine, Ron suffered a heart attack on the chair lift. Jennine's quick thinking and the fortunate presence of a doc- tor and rescue personnel with defibrillating equipment made it possible to resuscitate him. The physician later commented that Ron's will to live played a major role in his survival. An article in the local paper, The New Mexican, quoted Dr. Richard Liberman as saying, "It was partly his decision to stay alive. He basically chose to live, we think." The experience forms the basis for one of Ron's most compelling lectures. He will give it on June 6 at 7 p.m. in the Old Town Hall in nearby Thompson, Conn., where he lived for 20 years before relocat- ing to Santa Fe. He also gives talks on reconciling religion and science and the history of ethnic conquests. "My life has been full beyond anything I could imagine, including surviving death," he sums up.
