Ron was a hard-working man and loved his job of 23 years at Trunkline Gas Company. If you knew Ron, you
knew where to find him… the garage. He was a man of many talents. He loved to work on anything with an
engine and play the guitar. He enjoyed fishing and being near the ocean. He was a beautiful singer and secretly,
a talented artist. He was most proud of his son and his Coast Guard career, as well as his pride and joy daughter
and grandchildren. While battling his cancer, he never stepped away from working on projects for his family. He
will always be remembered for his genuine heart, beautiful soul, and hands that could fix anything.

Savanna (Erik) Larson of Culver, IN, four grandchildren,:Jack, Thomas, Charlotte, and Samuel, and his brothers:
