Ronald Clarence was born in Alamosa, Colorado on June 19, 1939. Clarence and Alyda Westenburg welcomed him as the second of their four children. Soon after his birth the family moved to Denver where Ron attended the Denver Christian Schools. During his teen years he developed a love for cooking, and, when the family would go to the mountains for breakfast on Saturday mornings, Ron would fix the pancakes. From July 21, 1959 until July 20, 1962 Ron served in the U.S. Army in the U.S. and Europe. During that time he earned his "wings" as a paratrooper. After being honorably discharged, he worked for the U.S. embassy in Paris, France for a year, during which time he enjoyed sight-seeing throughout Europe. As a civilian, Ron worked for many years as a manager for both Howard Johnson and Mr. Steak restaurants. In recent years he was an early riser and delivered newspapers faithfully for the Denver Newspaper Agency. For several years he has enjoyed fellowship, serving meals, being on the board, and singing in the "Melody Makers" at the Malley Senior Center. In June, 2011, he was diagnosed with metastasized prostate cancer. He continued working as long as possible, while taking treatments to fight the cancer. On October 4, 2012, he entered "In Home Hospice" care at his sister's home. For the last five days he resided at the Porter Hospice Residence. Ron entered his Heavenly home, victoriously, on February 11, 2013. He is survived by Violet Sjaardema and Marvin Westenburg. Janice Russom preceded him in death.
