Ronald David Cool, 57, passed away at his home the morning of Saturday, July 7th.

He was born on July 9th 1960 in Chicago, Illinois to Raymond Gene Cool and Rosemarie Margart (Linster) Cool

Ronnie had a quiet, but imposing stature. Just like the BEARS he loved. He was married to Sally and met her later in his life. He was willing and excited to start a new adventure by moving from his home in Chicago to join his future wife and family in Maui, Hawaii. He was a loving and caring husband, uncle, brother and son-in-law and leaves them with enormous holes in their hearts with his passing. He had his own sense of humor and everyone enjoyed it. He was a dedicated, caring and loving husband who would always think of others before himself. He never wanted to be a burden, but to those he loved and cared for, he would do anything he needed for them. He will be missed and loved by his Hawaiian 'ohana, but no one more than his wife of 17 years.

Ronnie was a great father. He would always take his daughter out when they were together. Some of their regular places to visit were mini-golf, the movie theater, whale watching, or the pancake house. He was a man of few words, but the love for his daughter was something no one could deny. While Ronnie and Kristina were thousands of miles apart, they still maintained a strong relationship and a bond that will never be broken. The love for his grandkids was just as strong, the joy in his face when he saw them will never be forgotten. He took joy in getting them fun gifts like Madison’s first bicycle and taking the kids to fun places like dieders farm. He made it a tradition to come every October so that he could celebrate their birthdays. He will be truly missed.

He preceded his death by his mother Rosemarie Cool; father, Raymond Cool; brother Russel Cool; sister Mary Jo Cool.

Ronald survived by his daughter Kristina Marie Cool; wife Sally Mamo Hoopii-Cool; mother-in-law Pam Hoopii; father-in-law Donald Hoopii; sister Kay Cool; sister Penelope Hiner; brother Roger Cool; brother Ralph Cool; sister-in-law Sheryl Paschoal; brother-in-law Albert Paschoal; grand-daughter Madison Luce; grandson Matthew Luce; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Condolences to the Cool family. We all loved Ronnie over at St. Jeromes. I played football with him when he was in 7th and 8th grade and was one of his neighborhood friends for many years after. Ronnie was a man playing amongst boys on that field back at that time with his magic toe that kicked all those extra points after so many touchdowns, which was very rare talent to see for 7th grader playing on varsity 8th grade team. The coaches at St Jeromes and parents, we all had some of the best times of our lives winning 2 championships with Ronnie Cool. 48 double power sweep was Ronnie's play from his fullback position that he loved to run. We all blocked for him and we remember all those extra points he kicked right though the uprights. He loved us!

Our condolences to the entire Cool Family. Didn't know Ronnie as well as I did most of the other family, but it is sad that this family that has had more than their share of grief the last few years is sad once again!

I am sorry to hear of your loss. I have not seen Ron since my grammar school years at St. Jeromes. I was a year younger than Ron. When Ron was in 8th grade, he was the star punter for our Raiders Football Team. He was a quiet guy and never said too much.
