Obituary Condolences

Pasadena, CA - Ronald Edwin Bare, 76, passed away on Monday, October 5th, 2015, following a long history of illnesses attributable to his massive stroke in January of 2000. Ron leaves his wife of 33 years, Winnie Bare; his daughter, Eva Simpson and husband John; daughter, Barbara Ballard and husband Brad; grandchildren, Ryan, Lauren and Ethan Simpson, Morgan and Max Ballard; twin brother and sister in law, Donald E and Jean Ann Bare, nephew and wife, Jeffrey and Traci Bare, niece and husband, Debbie and David Parese, niece, Leeann Bare; and many close extended family and friends. Born and raised in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania in 1939, the son of Harry and Emily Bare, Ron graduated from Wyomissing High and enlisted with the United States Marine Corps from 1957-61. After proudly serving the Marines for four years, in 1962, Ron joined the Los Angeles Police Department, where he spent the next 20 years of his life; retiring in 1982 as Detective in the Robbery Homicide Department. While still with the LAPD, Ron met his wife Winnie and they married in 1982. After retiring from the LAPD, he started his own company, Windsor Security & Investigations where he continued his life in the service field. Ron was an excellent golfer and former long time member of Oakmont Country Club but had to retire his golfing days as a 4 handicap, due to his debilitating stroke. Ron won many golf championships over the years; too many to mention. He relished the life long friends he made during his life, largely from the police department and golfing around the Los Angeles area. Ron was a tremendous athlete and had an extreme passion for sports; golf and baseball, but especially his beloved New York Yankees. He was happiest around friends and family; but particularly loved hearing about his grandchildren and their endeavors. He was loved dearly by his family. A memorial service will be held October 24, 2015 in Pasadena and private burial at Forest Lawn, in Glendale.
