Ron Silver was a man of great passion and compassion.
His acting skills were remarkable, whether on stage, screen or television. He was a powerful presence whatever role he played. He was also a devoted parent. Ron was a wonderful and caring man, so I was most fortunate to spend time with him over the years.
Perhaps it was Ron's passion as a political activist that will be his most important legacy. For sure, at times he was controverisal. But he derserves great respect for his outspokenness, his candor and his commitment to this country.
I will miss him.
