Ron was a loving father and grandfather. He was a gun enthusiast who enjoyed fishing, hunting, and mountain road trips. Ron "Chub" Imlay was happiest when in the company of family and friends in "the park" next to his home playing horseshoes, sitting around the campfire, and enjoying good food and drink.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Kevin "Oly" Imlay.

He is survived by his daughter, Darcey Harmon; grandsons Kale and Ethan; sister Conni McDowell; brother Jon Imlay; nephew David Imlay, who was like a son, and David's wife, Jen, who was like a second daughter; also nephews Jesse, Matt, Kaleb, Justin, and Hunter; nieces Tonya, Roberta, and Tesla; daughter's mother and good friend, Kelly Luraas; and close friend, Dave McGurran.

A note from Ron's daughter: "Even though you and I were set apart by miles, we were close at heart. You once said your greatest accomplishment in life was bringing me into this world. I will miss your warm hugs and long conversations. I long for the day when we will no longer be separated by distance, so save me a spot Daddy, and I'll see you when I get there. Your Baby".
