The company which failed to contact his family to convey the message of his demise finally got into contact with the Mumbai agent through whom Ronald had bagged the job. The agent had shared the information in Mangaluru-based WhatsApp groups. Based on this information, Indian Social Forum, basically having members from Ullal, began efforts to bring his body to India. The family members of the deceased had contacted G K Saleem of the Indian Social Forum. The team after searching in many hospitals, found that Ronald's mortal remains were stored in King Fahad Hospital.

Ronald’s family thanked Guruvayanakere G K Saleem, Siddique Ullal, Indian Social Forum Aseer central committee vice president Haneef Manjeshwar and MLA U T Khader, for the effort made by them to get Ronald’s mortal remains back to India.

Ronald is survived by wife and two children.

    Rest in Peace Ronald. This is how Indian Embassy works, Indian Embassy has no voice, no strength and NO POWER in Middle East Countries and elsewhere when it comes to very important matters. Who cares Indian Embassy this is the attitude in those countries.
