Ron was married to RaNae Scott (Blaisure) and later divorced. Together they have five children; Tammy Wright (DLynn-deceased), Scott (deceased), Marvin, Travis (Jill) and Shereen Brown (Darren).
Ron joined the United State Army and served his country with pride. He often talked of his times in Alaska while in the Army. He was able to return making a life-long dream happen when his son Travis, surprised him with a fishing trip to Alaska.
He was a great example of caring for his mom. He learned to cook from her. One of the things he learned to make was homemade bread. Some of the treasures he left behind are his recipes for homemade bread and snow cakes. He learned to hunt and fish from his father, Art and his step-father Tom Hale.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, of Latter Day Saints. He loved his family and often took them hunting, fishing, on picnics or on a drive in the mountains. He worked at the Tooele Army Depot upon his discharge from the Army until his retirement. He was born during the depression and would tell stories about how thrifty they had to be. As such, he loved to tinker and repaired a lot of things throughout the years. Even a couple of days before his death, it was hard for him to sit still. He enjoyed gardening and had a green thumb. He loved animals, especially his horses and dogs. He taught his children how to hunt, fish and be thrifty. They treasure the memories they share of the many hunting, fishing and camping trips; one of which was his trophy elk hunt. Many special times were also spent with his brother and sister-in-law Merlin and Lillis Warr and their children, Rick, Guy, Jerry and Christy. Many grandchildren, nieces and nephews also have fond memories hunting, camping and fishing with him.
