Ronald E. Pulone Obituary
August 25, 1931 - April 18, 2016 Born in Culver City CA to Edmond and Beatrice Pulone. Ron is survived by his wife, Joy; children, Chris (Bernadette); Nick (Jennifer); Steve (Cameron); Chuck Carreon; Linda (Mitch) Gluckman; and Andy (Ginger) Carreon; 8 grandchildren, sister Antonia (Steve) Walwyn, and an amazing group of friends and extended family. Ron was a Korean War veteran, documenting his entire experience as a photographer in the US Army. His working career started with the LA Times in their advertising department, where he established lifelong friendships with Bob, Dale, and Gary, among others. He joined forces with his father, Eddie at Sunset Fireplace Fixtures, and together they grew the company into a premiere manufacturer and distributor of quality fireplace accessories. He was active in, and led numerous organizations¿President of the Arcadia SPEBSQSA chapter; President of the Hearth Patio & Barbecue Association; Etiwanda Game Association; Ducks Unlimited; Lifetime Member of the NRA; Tennessee Squires; and loved to entertain friends and family with his expertise in photography, Napa cabernets, movie trivia, cigars, Sasieni 4-Dot pipes, Parker side-by-sides and Model 42's, life-changing chili, and smoked baby-back ribs. Ron loved the outdoors¿he hunted and fished everywhere from the tip of Baja to Great Bear Lake in the Northwest Territory, stopping at Lake Crowley and Yuma AZ on annual outings. A tremendous marksman, he won several local competitions in trap & skeet shooting. His love for his family was as big as his laugh, and he will be forever remembered for his passion, wit, and story-telling. The family would like to offer special thanks to Father Ken Deasy for guiding Ron on his spiritual journey. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Father Ken's Vineyard at FatherKen.org.
