He grew up in Portland and graduated from Oregon State University. He spent his professional career as a civil engineer, mostly in the Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Throughout his life Ron enjoyed the great outdoors.

His afternoons are now spent crabbing and shrimping out on Puget Sound and fishing the waters off Port Hardy.
Ron is survived by his wife, Suzi, three sons, Dave, Mike, and Brad; brother, Robert (Linda) Swint. He was preceded in death by his parents.
