Remembering Ron Brechter

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Hall County Master Gardener, Ron Brechter, who passed away on May 24th, following a brief illness.

Ron made a tremendous impact to the Hall County Master Gardener organization and the local community through his volunteer service.

Ron was a master gardener volunteer for 28 years and served in Hall County for 18 years after transferring from Texas. He enjoyed sharing his plant knowledge with others and was an expert in all things tomatoes. Ron was famously known throughout the community as 'Tomato Ron' or TR for short. He was often spotted at Ask A Master Gardener booths at Hall County Farmers Markets and plant expos, taught a variety of classes to master gardener trainees, and was always helping at any and every volunteer project he could. We value Ron for his service and friendship and hope we embody his spirit and passion for plant education and volunteer work as we move forward.
