Ron was born on February 13, 1963 in Lewistown, Mont., a son of Patrick and Jeanne (Rutter) Moran. As a young child the family moved to Glendive, where Ron was raised and educated, graduating from Dawson County High School with the class of 1981. While in high school, Ron enjoyed sports, he was a member of the last Red Devil Football team to win a State Championship and in his senior year he was a member of the 1981 State Class A Basketball Championship team. He was also selected to play in the East West Shrine Football game. After high school, Ron attended Montana State University in Bozeman for one year before he transferred to the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, N.D. where he received an Associate’s Degree in Electronics Technology. Upon completing his education, he moved to Billings where he worked for St. Vincent’s Hospital for a few years before he was able to start working on his own from his home. Ron continued to live in Billings until the time of his passing.
Ron enjoyed hunting and fishing, reading and learning. He had an insatiable thirst for knowledge, as a young boy he read the entire encyclopedia from A to Z. Ron’s biggest love were his Golden Retrievers, Sparky and Spunky who preceded him in death and Princess and Annabelle who survive him.
Ron was preceded in death by his father, Pat Moran.
Ron is survived by his mother, Jeanne Moran of Glendive; one brother, Steve (Debbie) Moran of Berea, Ky.; three sisters, Patty Moran of Naples, Fla. and her daughter Stephanie, Kay (Bruce) Storlie of Glendive and their children Haylee and Cole, and Jeannie (Fernando) Gallardo of Leesburg, Va. and their sons Alexander and Aiden; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
