Ron was born in St. Cloud, MN. He earned his Mining Engineering Degree from the University of Minnesota. He met his wife Holle at a Minneapolis Hospital where she was a nurse. They married and moved to Morenci, AZ where he worked at the Copper Mine and received his Master’s Degree from the University of AZ. He settled in Lakewood, Colorado in 1968 with a short time in Alaska and Wyoming. They had 4 children. In 1973, a niece and nephew came to live with them. In total, he raised 6 children. He has 7 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. He is survived by Kathy Butler (Dean), Heidi Wright, Joe Haxby (Joy), Barbara Haxby Glazier (Tim), Fern Sherwood and Bobbie Sherwood. The grand children are Elizabeth Beard, Lindsey Wright, Jamie Haxby, Kimberly Hill (Eric), Stephanie Butler, Jonathan Jet Underwood, Jessica Underwood and great grandson Aiden Chamberlain. He loved to fish, ski, hike, go dancing and take walks. He taught many children to fish off his dock at his Lakewood CO home. He traveled the world while in the mining business and at one time he won an award for logging the most air miles. The award stated that the air miles that he logged would circle the earth 3 times. He will be remembered for being a great Father, who told many great stories of his travels, and being a wonderful grandfather to all. He will be greatly missed, but we know he is now dancing and fishing to his heart’s content.

Ron was my trusted friend and confidant since 1979. We met at Occidental Minerals that year. Ron was 1 of my 3 bosses that I had while there. It was a joy to go to work for those 3 short years before the company folded. Ron, Ray & Frank were my 3 best friends. That was the last time I could ever say going to work was a joy! Most of the conversations Ron and I had were spent talking about family, friends, real estate and stocks. Ron never failed to share his time and expertise with me and gave me good, sound advice. Ron adored his family. He kept me up to date on all of you. He adored Holle and once told me, "She only has 1 fault." I asked, "What's that?" He replied, "She can't use a calculator." I laughed and decided that would be wonderful if someone told me that was my "only" fault. I knew Ron for 2/3 of my life. There is a big, empty hole now that I can't pick up the phone to catch up with him. I always felt uplifted after our conversations. He never failed to ask how Sherri and the boys were doing. He taught me "what the good life was all about." My condolences to you. He'll really be missed by me as well.

I'd like to send my condolences on Ron's passing.
I worked at Oxy Minerals Corp in Miami AZ during a period of time when Ron was in charge of the project, and have been in touch with him on and off through the years. It was a fun project, and Ron was fun to work with; the "old crew" will miss him.
