Hi, my name is Marion Rouff Wright, daughter of ron rouff, granddaughter of fred and marion rouff. I was looking on the internet for info on dover dragstrip for my dad recently and found your site. Ron is at the moment recovering in naugatuck connecticut from colon cancer surgery. Dad would of loved to of been at your reunion with john macey but was in Griffin hospital (derby,ct) at the time. Uncle john came to see him just before reunion and stopped in again afterwards to fill him in on the happenings. I was able to pull the website up at the hospital and show dad the pics and one of his articles he wrote about” big daddy turns 196 in 8.03 at dover”. Dad told me about another article he wrote I would like to find. The only thing he could tell me about the article is (not sure of spelling) Tommy Akurey and dad called him Dennis Nerdlinger in the article I believe he ran a 60 corvette????? I am also trying to find a picture of my brother chuck who was born in 1965 and was in the dragnews wearing a winston hat , reading dragnews possibly 1967-1970 ???? the article says : who reads dragnews why grandson of fred rouff etc…….??? Dad says hi to all who remember him and thanks for the memories, thank you again marion

It is with great sadness that I’m writing to you today. My Uncle Ron Rouff passed away Sunday morning 4/21/2013, after a long courageous battle with cancer. As you may remember he was the son of the late Fred and Marion Rouff. He is survived by his wife Flo and his son Chuck and daughters Marion, Lisa, Wendy, Tracy and Rhonda, and several grandchildren,. He was predeceased by his son Ron,Jr.

JoAnn,to both you and the family, sorry to hear about your ‘great’ loss. May he rest in peace. 🙁
I was going to write to you about my Dad, Ron Rouff but I see my cousin Jo ann beat me to it. I also wanted to look for more pictures in the gallery but everytime I click on one I get a trojan horse warning ? Is the sight infected or having problems? Look forward to hearing from you.
