RONALD K. BARRON

  | 
BARRON, RONALD K. Ron Barron was one of life's truly unique individuals, a "man child', "Renaissance Man" and a pirate at heart! Sadly, this vibrant, brave, kind, generous and loving soul departed us on August 18, 2010 at age seventy. A free spirit and larger than life, Ron's lifelong passions included music, surfing, sport kite flying and yoyo's. Ron's family and numerous friends adored him and will miss his colorful personality, razor sharp intellect and humor. Ron was born in San Francisco in 1940, grew up in San Diego, graduating in 1958 from Mission Bay High School. Ron was one of the original members of the infamous South Land Surfers Club that surfed long boards along the California Coast and Mexico. In 1979, Ron moved to Sonoma County, CA and enjoyed a 20 year career as a bridge builder for the Public Works Dept. He was a founder of the Northern California Kite Club and was a professional level sport kite flyer and exhibitor. Ron retired and moved to Maui in 1999 where he served as a volunteer for the National Kidney Foundation and helped start the Hawaii Yoyo Association on Maui. Ron will be remembered as a gregarious and fun loving personality. His shining smile will be missed. Predeceased by his parents, Ken and Thelma Barron, and son, Patrick Barron, Ron is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Sally; his children: Ken Riley, Scott Barron, Kevin Barron and Sabrina Stryker; his siblings: Larry and Bob Barron and sister Barbara Merritt; eight grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces. A private celebration of life will be held in Ron's memory.
