A graduate of Shaker Heights High School (1964) in Cleveland, Ohio and The Ohio State University (1970), Ron was a second-generation real estate developer and construction executive.

A veteran army reservist, Ron believed in service to others and civic duty holding multiple chairman positions within the City of Beachwood, Ohio municipality. And, he was the consummate loving father and sportsman, coaching youth and adult recreational sports teams over several decades.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 48 years , Karleen (nee Heyman), two sons Adam (Talia) and Shane (Natalie)], three grandchildren Dylan, Cameron and Cole and two siblings Jeffrey ( Lisa) and Debbie (Brian) Taub.
