Ron Browning Obituary
RON BROWNING Ron Browning was born to parents Vivian and Leonard "Chick" Browning on November 7th, 1948 in Chico, California. As a child and teenager, Ron loved playing football, baseball, and pulling pranks. He graduated from Chico High School and Chico State. After college, he worked several summers on Forest Service helitack crews. Ron was a retired entrepreneur known for his determination and inclination to travel and explore. As a young man, he completed trips to Central America and Asia, and a continental motorcycle journey crisscrossing North America aboard his trusty BMW while sleeping under the stars. Later in life, Ron enjoyed frequent road trips with his kids, motorcycle trips with friends, travel to Europe, and a recent RV trek north to Alaska. He was as eager to learn about the world as he was to see it and was always in the midst of an interesting book. Throughout his life family and pets meant very much to him. Ron enjoyed automobile races, rodeos, college baseball, 49ers football and socializing daily with a cast of characters in downtown Chico. Ron Browning passed away unexpectedly on June 2, 2018, at the age of 69 following elective surgery at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California. He is survived by his children Jesse Browning of San Francisco, Megan Browning of Oakland, his sister Barbara Scott of Chico, as well as nephews, cousins and an uncle. A memorial will be held the weekend of August 4th in Butte County. The family invites you to visit www.rememberingronbrowning.com or contact the family at (530) 206-3397 for details.
