We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Desert Rose Funeral Chapel
Ron Ohls passed away peacefully on November 13th after a brief illness. He left the world surrounded by his loving family and by the love and prayers of his many, many friends.
Ron was born on October 16th, 1948, to Bee and Don Ohls. Other than a stint in the Army, he spent the first half of his life in California before moving to Houston, to Las Vegas and finally to Lakeview.
Ron was blessed with many gifts, among them a big heart and a big brain. He loved sports –- playing, watching, coaching –- and although his gifts did not include proficiency in either, he enjoyed playing tennis and golf. He loved to fish, and some of his happiest times were spent in the Sierra Nevada with a fishing pole in his hands. He loved his LA Dodgers and came close to crying Dodger blue tears when they failed to advance to the World Series this year.
Ron enjoyed (most) people, and you never had to wonder where you stood with him. If he liked you, you knew, and if he didn't, well, you knew that, too. He made and kept friends throughout his life, maintaining relationships with people he met as far back as grade school. He led a very interesting life and could keep a room laughing with his stories (and nobody laughed harder than he did). No matter how many times you'd heard the story, it was still funny.
Ron is survived by his wife, Susan, his children, Scott and Debbie Ohls, Monique and Chris Berg, Josh and Tara Hill, by his mother, Bee, his brother, Mark Ohls, his two sisters, Jennifer Imbriani and Loretta LaCarte, by his grandchildren, his nieces and nephews, and by his many loved and loving friends.
He was predeceased by his father, Don, and by his brother, John.
Ron's family would like to thank Dr. Matthew Foster, Erika Mendias, and Lakeview Home Health & Hospice, particularly Kylie and Kendra, for all of their help, compassion and support. They made a very difficult time a bit less difficult.
