Ronald Robert Koblin Obituary
February 6, 1944 - September 29, 2015 Ronald Robert (Ron) Koblin passed away Tuesday afternoon at the age of 71 due to stroke complications. He will be sorely missed for his consummate good nature, his infectious sense of humor, his beaming smile, and his loving generosity. Ron was a successful CPA and business manager, handling a full docket of clients including A-list Hollywood accounts. He always practiced the utmost professionalism and competence in his work, and he thoroughly enjoyed his job and his clients. But even more than his impressive business proficiency, people admired Ron for his ability to live an incredibly balanced life and keep things in perspective. From unabashed social fun to his dedication to his family to his professional acumen, Ron lived life to the fullest and loved life to the fullest. He loved nothing more than to spend time with family and friends, relax, joke, laugh, eat, and have a margarita. He loved to play and watch almost all sports, particularly basketball, golf, and bowling (he had a 300 game!), and loved to go to the movies. Born in Walla Walla, Washington and spending his early years in Chicago, his family moved to Santa Maria, California when Ron was 16 years old. He attended UCLA, where he met his future wife Jane Pearlman Koblin. Ron stepped into the military in 1967, enlisting in OCS. Ron and Jane were married in 1968, followed by Ron's naval deployment as lieutenant jg at Point Mugu, where he served until December 1969. In 1970 Ron became a father when Jane gave birth to their daughter, Amanda Michelle Koblin. In 1974 they had a son, Danny Koblin. Ron's family was dearest to his heart, and he also had a multitude of close friends whom he treated like family. Ron is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Jane, his daughter Amanda (John), his son Danny (Alice), his four grandchildren Leonardo, Angelo, Parker, and Asher, and his brother Don (Jan). A celebration of Ron's life will be held on Sunday, October 4 at 11am in the Pavilion Club at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion, the place where his idol, John Wooden, coached for many years.
