Ronald D. “Ron” Howard, 72, of Estero, FL and of Wapakoneta, OH, passed away at 10:44 PM on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at his residence in Wapakoneta.

He was born on May 4, 1946 in Lima to Estel and Georgia (Staci) Howard, who both preceded him in death. He was formerly married to Debra Coon, who survives in Ft. Myers, FL. On May 29, 2005, he married Beverly J. Croft, who survives in Estero, FL.

Ron worked in sales/customer service for over 15 years for Flagler Construction Equipment in Ft. Myers, FL and retired in 2015. He had also worked for over 19 years for Teledyne/Ohio Steel and was also a small business owner. Ron proudly served his country as a member of the US Navy and served 3 tours in Vietnam.

Ron was a member of V.F.W. Post 8445 of Wapakoneta, OH, the West Coast Muscle Car Club and the Wildcat Country Club of Estero, FL. He loved MOPAR muscle cars and traveling, but most of all loved spending time with his family and friends. Ron was an extremely well liked man who was always upbeat and displayed a positive attitude.

Surviving are his wife Beverly Howard of Estero, FL; his children Christopher (Allison) Howard of Dublin, OH, Chad (Tracy) Howard of Dublin, OH, Cameron Howard of Ft. Myers, FL, Tiffany (Robert) Najmulski of Lima, OH and Shane Woten of Sarasota, FL; his six grandchildren.

According to Ron’s wishes, there will be no visitation or services at this time but there will be a Service of Remembrance at a later date at the convenience of the family.
