In Memory

Ronald Lee Knudtson

Ronald Lee Knudtson

SGHS Class of S'63

Ron passed away in February 2019, after a battle with Cancer.  Another Classmate gone too soon.  RIP, Ron!  It was great to see him at our 55th Class Reunion in November 2018!  We were especially blessed to enjoy more time with Ron (and Dave) since we were all staying at the same hotel for our 55th Reunion.  We had some great laughs and conversation together.  I remember Ron and Jim Saucerman where the tall and short of the surfer boys in high school.  Great memories....

Frank and I are very sad to learn of Ronnie's passing.  He fought hard to beat his battle with cancer.  We have two of his paintings hanging in our home.  He was an amazing artist.  Back in the late 70s we along with Bob and Susan(Mills) Knudtson put on an art showing of his work.  He sold a lot of pieces as people loved his work - it was timeless and unique.  Soar with the angels Ronnie - Rest in  Peace!

I have found over the years that the closer brothers are in age, the more competitive they are with each other, as Ron and I were..   We were just over 11 months apart which meant that for 10 days a year, we were the same age.   This competition was apparent at an early age, starting with sports at the park, in school, surfing, always testing each others ability to outdo the other.    Ron held a deep love for his wife of 53 years, Nikki, and his two sons Bobby and Jason, their wives, along with his six grandchildren.   He was an accomplished water color artist creating the admiration of many people over the 50+ years he worked at it.   His style is easily recognized and I can't help but think his career in the construction industry supported his love for painting.   We love and will miss you Ron, but know in our hearts that you are in a better place.   Rest assured, we will be together again in the Lords House... Brothers Forever, Bob....

I was so surprised to hear of Ron's passing but was so very glad to see him at the recent class reunion.  I had no idea that he was an accomplished artist and would love for someone to post some of his paintings.  I didn't know Ron that wellin high school but did get a chance to know him a bit better during the reunion.  My prayers go out to the family in his loss........."Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day....unseen, unheard but always near.....still loved, still missed, and very dear".

I was so sad to hear about Ron's passing.  We knew each other and were friends since grammar school.  I loved surfing with him and we used to create our own surf contests at Sunset Beach.  I'm glad I got to see him at the reunion.  Rest in peace Ron.
