Ronald John Jeffrey
May 25, 1943 – September 6, 2019
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Ronald J. Jeffrey on September 6, 2019 in Beaumont, California. Ron was born in Napa, California on May 25, 1943, raised in Fontana, graduated from Fontana High School and lived most of his life in Redlands, California. He is survived by his wife of 56 years Joyce (Police) Jeffrey, his daughter Suzanne (Jeffrey) Princiotta, and her husband Doug and grand-daughters Ella and Lily; also by his brother Richard Jeffrey and wife Carol of Hemet. Ron met Joyce in 1958 when he went to work for her father, Charlie Police at Bakers Burgers in Rialto. Ron served honorably in the US Army from 1964-66 in Aschaffenburg, Germany. Ron and Joyce founded Inland Acoustics in San Bernardino in 1978 and eventually changed the name of the business to Tri-City Acoustics and moved it to Redlands in 1988. Ron was active in his community through Sacred Heart Church, now Holy Name of Jesus; Dads and Daughters; the Rotary Club of Redlands which he joined in 1981; the Shamrock Club; as a member of the Board of Directors of Redlands Community Hospital; Town and Gown for the University of Redlands; Redlands Country Club and quietly supported so many other groups in the community. If asked he would say “…I’d rather be fishing or…gardening!” and he often was doing both. He worked tirelessly on the Rotary Wine Tasting, the Rotary Wine Tasting Dinner, and Rotary Club membership, and I think he still holds the record for bringing in the most new members to the club. He made every effort to improve the lives of people in his community and around the world. A celebration of Ron’s life will be held this Saturday, September 14th, 11:00 AM at Holy Name of Jesus, 115 West Olive Ave, Redlands with a reception to follow. Ron had named the Rotary International Foundation for any gifts in his honor.

I send my deepest condolence to you with the loss of Ronnie.
I remember you both as teens dating and then coming to your wedding. You found the perfect match for life. Love never dies.
He will always be in your heart until you see him again in the light
and glory of God's love.
With much love,
