Posted on August 15, 2007

Longtime motorcoach industry stalwart Ronald R. Cornell, chairman of ABC Companies, unexpectedly passed away on Friday, August 10, at his home in Florida. The cause of death has not yet been disclosed.

 

Cornell had served on the ABA Board of Directors since 2002, and was well known throughout the motorcoach industry for his stoic leadership of one of the industry’s leading commercial bus distributors, as well as for his dedicated commitment and valued contributions to numerous industry events.

 

A private family service is being planned, but a memorial will be created in his honor, the details of which will be made available in the next few days.

 

In the interim, Clancy Cornell, ABC founder and chairman emeritus, will assume the role of chairman, and Dane Cornell will continue to oversee day-to-day operations as president/CEO.
