Ronald L. Rygh

Born: October 19, 1941

Died: June 27, 2019

Ronald L. Rygh, 77, passed away on Thursday, June 27th, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, Washington. Ron was born October 19, 1941 in Wedron, Illinois to Oren and Pearl Rygh, the youngest of three children.

Shortly after graduation, he joined the United States Air Force and served as a dedicated meteorologist for over 21 years, serving both during peacetime and in times of conflict.

Ron was the beloved husband to his true love, Mae Ruth, for almost 60 years. He was a devoted father to his daughters Vicki and Lisa, and an adoring "Papa" to his seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Ron loved his family. He loved to laugh. He loved his country. He was charitable. He was gracious. He was a loyal friend. He lived a life of love and has left a legacy that reflects his care and concern for all those who knew him. He was the best of men. He will be missed by all who loved him.
