On July 4, 2014, Arnon Vered’s championship battle came to an end. Diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in March of 2013, Arnie never let his positive attitude and zest for life falter. He was the President of the Arnon/Ron Engineering group of companies, a business and community leader, proud philanthropist and devoted father and husband. His memory will always live on, as will his legacy. Arnie will be forever missed.
