A Great Accordion Player!
In 2008, I recorded an album with Ron Budzyn and Charlie Lillie. Ron and I have played accordions together ever since. During that time, Ron was the other half of Richard’s Magic Accordion. We each found the friend of a lifetime through our accordion music. In December of 2015, Ron retired from playing the accordion with me, because of health issues, and arthritis pain. We have had so much fun playing music together over the years, that it will be very hard to continue without him! God Bless You Ron! Here’s to seeing you at future dances and performances, with a drink in your hand, and a song in your heart!
It is with great sadness, that I add that Ronald Gregory Budzyn, 82, of Portage, MI, passed away, December 23, 2019. Goodbye my friend. I miss you.
Ron married Carol in 2011, and she played a few songs with us at each performance too. She still plays piano and accordion, in Portage, Michigan.
