Ronald Lawrence Ward Obituary
Ronald (Ron) Lawrence Ward

Ronald (Ron) Lawrence Ward, 64, Redondo Beach. He passed surrounded by friends and family at Torrance Memorial Hospital on June 7, 2018.

Ron was born in Lynwood, California February 16, 1954 to Jessie (Jay) and Mahlon Ward. He graduated Lynwood High in 1972. The following year, the family moved to Rolling Hills, California. A true 'car guy' Ron was always hopping up his rides for style and performance, including his first car, a 1932 Ford, that he kept his entire life. He worked at the family business, Inglewood Sheet Metal, as a teenager, continued as foreman once he completed college, and took over the helm in 1998.

An avid seaman, Ron spent countless hours on his boat traveling, fishing, and sharing a drink and a good story with his many friends at King Harbor in Redondo Beach. The life of the party, his gregarious attitude and confident spirit created a lasting impression on everyone who knew him. He loved his children and took special pride in being Grandpa Ward.

Ron is survived by his son, David; and daughter, Melody; two granddaughters, Evalyn and Isabel; and sister, Joni.

Saturday, June 30th, there will be a celebration of life at the Bluewater Grill in the 'Captain's Cabin' banquet room from 12pm to 4pm. We will share drinks, food, and our best Captain Ron stories. Confidant, comrade, raconteur, and friend, he will be forever in our hearts. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
