Also survived by brothers, Duane and Clarence “Bud” (Beverly); brother-in-law, Daniel Watson; sister-in-law, Patricia Miller; numerous nieces and nephews, and cousins. Ron spent most of his adult life as a steelworker, and eventually turned a hobby into a career, becoming a photojournalist with WJAC-TV, where he retired from in 2013. In his work with WJAC-TV News, Ron covered some of the biggest stories in our region, from the Quecreek Mine rescue to the crash of Flight 93, interviewing dignitaries and celebrities alike.
