Ronald Malcolm “Ron” Moreland, age 72, of Round Rock, Texas, passed away Sunday August 4, 2019. Ron was born September 11, 1946 in Austin, Texas to George and Corine Moreland.

He grew up in Austin where he attended Del Valle High School and was a star athlete, participating in track, basketball, baseball and football. Upon graduation from high school, Ron enlisted in the United States Navy where he proudly served as a Boatswain’s Mate, Petty Officer 3rd Class on the USS Camden in the Vietnam War where he earned the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal and the Vietnam Service Medal. On his return from the war he worked in the elevator industry and eventually settled into a career in sales where his sharp wit and ability to tell a joke served him well.

Gregory White

He was always the life of everything. He was always talking to someone trying to make them laugh and most of the time he was successful. He kept his sense of humor his whole life and that is what I will miss most. I loved listening to him talk about just anything off the top of his mind. He was a great grandpa and he loved us always and we will always miss him.

From Courtney: my favorite paw paw memory is making s’mores out on the porch in the backyard and laughing and telling funny stories the whole time

Here's my memory for pawpaw.

Everytime we went fishing it didn't matter cold, hot, rain, or shine. There'd be a rod in one hand and a coffee cup in another. So, I started calling him the coffee man. Rest easy for me coffee man. I'll meet you up there with a rod and a brew of my own.

Uncle Ronnie, you will be missed. I have so many memories of you but the most vivid is you coming home on leave from the Navy and I always got your sailor hat. I loved that. You were always so handsome, so happy and so fun. Later in life I learned from you how to tell when your steak was “perfect” by using my thumb and palm. A great life lesson. 🥰. Thank you and Kathy for helping us get mom to Pflugerville. We greatly appreciate all of your help. Love you and miss you until we meet again...
