|Graham's Number is named after Ron. There's a description here of the problem where it arises.
Ron was also a 7-ball juggler, an international standard gymnast and trampoliner, was President of the International Jugglers Association, all in addition to being a well-known and widely respected research mathematician. He was even featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not!
Ron regularly worked in close collaboration with Paul Erdos, even to the point of having a room in his house for Paul's use whenever he turned up.
He was a genuinely lovely man, and even though I saw him rarely, he was always warm and welcoming.
I will miss him.
