January 31, 1948 - December 31, 2011
Ron passed away at his home in Palm Beach Gardens on December 31, 2011. Ron was born on January 31, 1948 and raised in Greenfield, Massachusetts. He graduated from Mt. Hermon Preparatory School in Northfield, Massachusetts and Trinity College in Connecticut, where he was a star athlete in three varsity sports. Ron had been a resident of Palm Beach Gardens for 32 years. A devout Christian, he taught numerous Bible studies and Sunday school classes, and was a member of The Family Church in Jupiter. Ron was one of two children born to Chester Martin and the current Joan Bourne. He was Kathleen Martin's beloved husband for 42 years and the love of her life. Ron will forever be remembered by his wife, children Leah Nelson, Laurie Hodges and Lindsey Kesler and their husbands (whom he dearly loved as well), eight treasured grandchildren, sister Anne Cade, along with countless other friends and family who were blessed to know him. Ron loved studying God's word, playing golf or any sport, laughing, and being with his family. He was a Vice President of Investments at PMK Securities and Research. He touched the lives of many people with his faith, smile, generosity, and infectious personality and maintained his trademark sense of humor until the day he passed on. Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on Thursday, January 5, 2012, at 11:00 am at First Presbyterian Church, 717 Prosperity Farms Road, North Palm Beach, FL 33408. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to either the American Heart Association or Alliance Defense Fund, 15100 N. 90th Street, Scottsdale, AZ 85260.
