Ronald C. Maughan, son of Lowell C. Maughan and Carma O. Parker, passed away May 17, 2013, at the George E. Wahlen Veteran Home in Ogden due to complications of Huntington's disease.
He was born May 29, 1949, in Logan, Utah. He spent his childhood in Wellsville, Utah, and graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. He attended Weber State University before entering the service. He served in the U.S. Army
stationed in Seoul, Korea, during the Vietnam Era. He trained in Savannah, Ga., specializing in Radio TT Operations. He returned home to help with the family business and help his mother care for his father, who suffered from multiple sclerosis.
He worked in Ogden at the Defense Depot as a packer and processor, and also at Brills.
Huntington's disease took a toll on his abilities to do many things he would have liked to do. Ronald loved to take his dog, Daisy, camping and fishing. He was a loyal Utah Jazz fan and enjoyed watching the games.
Ronald is survived by his mother Carma Parker of North Ogden, sisters Gayla (John) Pengelly of Ogden and Carol Larsen of Harrodsberg, Ky., step-brothers Scott and John Parker of Bay Point, Calif., step-sister Vicki Berger of South Ogden, and many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his father Lowell Maughan, step-father Douglas Parker, step-brother Jeffrey Parker, and both sets of grandparents.
Graveside services will be held Wednesday, May 22, 2013, at noon at the Wellsville City Cemetery at 400 N. 200 East in Wellsville.
A very special thanks to Hospice for Utah, Brett, Debbie, Chris, Lisa, Kevin and also the staff at George E. Wahlen Care Center for all their tender care and kindness to Ronald and our family.
