Ron was a World War II veteran who served in the U.S. Army’s 8th Air Force as a B-24 flight engineer. He received a Certificate of Valor for his participation in the European Theater of Operations beginning on June 2, 1944.
After the war, he married Ruth and they moved to Glendale. Ruth passed away in 2000.
In 1952, they purchased their home in La Crescenta. Ron worked for Interstate Brands for 35 years as a machinist. His shops included Weber’s, Four-S and Dolly Madison.
He was an avid square dancer until age 91. Dancing four to five times a week and working as an “angel” kept him young and in shape!
A funeral Mass will be held on Friday, Jan. 17 at 1:30 p.m. at the Villa Scalabrini Chapel, 10631 Vinedale St. in Sun Valley.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to www.thesoldiersproject.org.
