Ronald LaMarr WilliamsAugust 31, 1973 ~ October 2, 2017 (age 44)
Ronald LaMarr, age 44, passed away at his Arden home on Oct 2, 2017. He was born August 31, 1973 in Logan, Utah. He married Galadriel (Galady) Elisha Gardner on January 10, 1997, surviving. Also surviving are his two sons, Hunter Michael and Matthew Ray Williams ages 18 and 16, his 11 year old daughter, Addison Kate Williams, his father and mother, Richard David Williams and Betty Eloise Williams, and his sister, Rhenon Annette Williams. Ron served an honorable two year mission in California associated with his lifetime membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He earned an Associate degree in Psychology from Ricks College in Rexburg, ID. He worked in the field for just a couple of years before developing his career as a self-employed Landscaper. His career was a perfect match for a nature lover such as himself. His hobbies include hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, gardening, raising livestock, and cooking at home, in the dutch oven, or over an open campfire. After moving from Montana to North Carolina in 1997, he embraced the local culture. He developed a love for boiled peanuts and eating the center out of watermelons. Ron was fun loving and always connected immediately with dogs and children, one of the sweetest traits he passed onto his darling Addie. He was happiest when he was fulfilling the needs of others. His lifetime involvement in Boy Scouts combined his love of serving others with his passion for the outdoors, learning new things, and experiencing new adventures. He honored his rank of Eagle Scout and was extremely proud when his boys obtained the rank. Ron was silly but lovable. If anyone ever asked him what he needed, he’d always answer “I could use a ribeye steak”. If you knew him, you probably received a wet willy or a poke in the ribs at some point. Ron was excited for each new day because he “got better looking every day”. One of his faults was that he “was so good he got jealous of himself”. He loved obnoxious pickup lines, silly jokes, Canadian movies, X-Files, Parks & Recreation (Ron Swanson), the Weather Channel, and documentaries. He was proud to be “bilingual”. He spoke “French” (French fries, French bread, French kissing, French toast). When he visited with friends from his youth or family from out West, he adopted his Canadian accent. He also spoke “Mountain Man”, “Hillbilly”, and “Spanish”. He loved to make people laugh and he loved to help those in need. Although most of his friends have said “RONALD!” through clenched teeth on more than one occasion, he was deeply loved and appreciated by all who knew him.
