Ron was always a hard worker throughout his life. After graduating from Farrington High School in 1958, he helped with the family business at Aki's Service Station on School Street as the lead mechanic. Ron then moved his family to Pukalani, Maui in 1970. He worked as a carpenter, park caretaker at Haleakala National Park and maintenance worker at Sands of Kahana. Prior to retiring he worked as a meat cutter at Napili Market for many years. He was a wonderful husband, dad, papa and tutu papa that could fix just about everything. He enjoyed fishing, diving, and shooting at the Ukumehame Firing Range. He especially enjoyed his annual family tradition of visiting the 9th Hawaiian Island, Las Vegas.
