Ron Garrison dies

One of the great supporters of scholastic wrestling in this area has died. Ron Garrison, who established the Brotherhood of Wrestling and was a member of the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic committee, died July 9 at age 59. Ron also was a committee member of the Southwestern Pa. Wrestling Hall of Fame and helped in gathering statistical information in the sport.

Before his health problems, Ron was a constant figure at the postseason tournaments and came to know many of the wrestlers. He would present the Brotherhood of Wrestling certificates to those who showed not only great talent on the mat but also ability in the classroom.

He will be missed.
