Ron proudly served for 18 years and retired in 1993. Ron was a photographer both in and out of the Navy. He was also and avid collector of a multitude of things from watches to M&M's and anything in between. He would often take his daughter to work with him while in the Navy. She enjoyed going to work with him and looking at the photos he had taken, and seeing the process of developing the film into photographs. There were many memories of summer trips camping, swimming, and fishing. Ron had a love of music ranging from Country to Classic rock. And most of all Ron loved his dogs, they were like his children and he spoiled them rotten.

Ron was preceded in death by his stepfather Billy Davis of Valley Mills Texas.
