Layman, Ronald A. - Fullerton  
Ronald Allan Layman Ronald Allan Layman died of heart failure at the age of 80 at St. Jude Hospital in Fullerton, CA on March 30, 2015 at 12:17 pm. Ron lived a full life and passed away quickly and peacefully as he would have wished it. He is survived by his girlfriend, Ria Van Gemerden of Whittier, CA, his ex-wife Sarah Anne Layman of Tulare, CA, four children; son Thomas Allan Layman (wife Kathleen) of Sunbury Ohio, son David Ronald Layman (ex-wife Patti) of Cherry Valley, CA, daughter Rebecca Lynne Layman-Amato (ex husband Emanuel, Sr.) of Seattle, WA and son James Scott Layman (ex-wife Edna) of Tulare, CA, nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Also surviving are two brothers Gary and Larry Layman, and sister Alexandra Layman-Zinn. Ron was born in Fort Jones, CA August 26, 1934, the first of 6 children, to Ruby Ruth Alexander-Layman and Claude Allen Layman of Ontario, CA. Ron graduated from Hart High in New Hall, CA with the class of 1952. Soon after graduation, he met Sarah (Sally) Anne Cox who had moved from Pittsburg, PA, to Whittier, CA and they married on February 12, 1955. Their marriage lasted 42 years, but their friendship lasted a lifetime. Ron retired from United States Steel (USS/USX) in 1985 after 32 years. He started in 1953 right out of high school working as an order clerk behind the counter (because he could type, so he said). He soon obtained an office job and climbed from there. His last position was as the West Coast Manager of the Oilwell Division, Tubular sales. Ron made many life long friends over his years at USS, some he was in touch with days before he passed. Ria Van Gemerden (originally from Rotterdam, Holland) was Ron's faithful girlfriend and they were friends for many years before living together in 1999. Ron and Ria had a full and active life together, traveling to Holland and other places. Ron's mind was vivid until the end. He loved traveling, classic cars, jokes, pranks, puzzles and his "precious junk". He had a positive attitude: whenever you asked how he was feeling he would reply with a long, drawn out "fantastic". And, if you told him to drive safely he'd say "I'll keep it under a hundred" (miles per hour, that is). Ron, dad we know you are in heaven with no brakes, driving as fast as the air will allow, breaking speed limits, pranking the other angels and having a "fantastic" time. You are dearly missed.
