Ronald Leroy Moore, age 83, died on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, at Galion Pointe Nursing Home.

Born on December 31, 1935, in Shelby to Carl and Mona (Dearth) Moore, he was a Shelby resident the majority of his life. 

Ronald was a 1954 graduate of Shelby High School and a Veteran of the United States Coast Guard after serving two years in the Marine Corps Reserve. He was employed with General Motors of Ontario for 32 years, retiring as Assistant Chief Powerhouse Engineer in 1992.
