Ronald Douglas Broward
April 3, 1933 – May 8, 2013
Ronald Douglas Broward left us peacefully to continue his journey on May 8, 2013. Ron was born in Los Angeles, California, on April 3, 1933. He is survived by his wife Jennifer, children Dennis and Karen Broward, step-children, Julie and Marty Johnson, Jim and Melissa Webb, and Jody Sisemore; grandchildren, Jacob (Jamie) Broward, Eric (Fiona) Broward, Sydney Rose Broward, Courtney and Brittney Johnson, Jordan, Brynn and Charley Webb and Ryan and McKenna Sisemore; great-grandchildren, Ben, Bailee, Josie Rose, Will and Luke Broward.
Ron and Jennifer enjoyed wonderful travels, frequent trips to Costco where he loved to grab a hot dog and searching for golf balls at their home in El Macero. Ron started his career as a United States Marine serving in Korea. He was a general contractor in Davis for many years and co-founder of Sudwerk Brewery. For the last 15 years, his true passion as a Marine was the work he did at JPAC which was successfully helping identify soldiers still missing in action from the Korean War
. It was his honor and privilege to work with an amazing group of people at JPAC. His dedication to this mission will not be forgotten, it will continue, 35 and counting, until they are home. Semper Fidelis.
A special heart felt thank you to Dr. Pirruccello, Dr. Yee, the nurses and staff at Woodland Healthcare Infusion Center, Yolo Hospice and Ted you all have an incredible gift.
Services are scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 1pm at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Road, Dixon. A celebration of life will follow at Sudwerk, 2001 Second St., Davis. Donations may be made to Yolo Hospice, 1909 Galileo Court, Suite A, Davis, 95618. McNary's Funeral Chapel of Woodland is assisting the family with arrangements.
