Ronald Reese Peluso
February 10, 1941 to September 28, 2013
Ron was born and spent most of his early years in Chicago. Boeing led his family to SeaTac, Washington. Ron graduated from Highline High School in 1959.
Ron is survived by the love of his life, wife Kathy Peluso. Ron and Kathy celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary the day before he died unexpectedly at their home in Olympia, Washington.
Ron is survived by his big brother Joe (Gaylene) Peluso; grandson Danny Jr. and great granddaughter, Danielle of Michigan; daughter, Julie (Peewee) Piemonte, grandchildren Vincent and Victoria of California. Ron is survived by Bret (Kim) MacRae of Gig Harbor, grandchildren Chase and Megan (Paul) Maksumchuk, great grandson, Isaac; and Tish (Jamie) Newcomer of Chicago, grandchildren Ava and Hank. Ron was the loving Uncle to John (Penny) Peluso, Sally (Rob) Mendel, and Lisa (Todd) Woomer. He was the Great-Uncle to Joe and Steven Peluso, Sarah and Laci Mendel, Dylan and Emilio Paull.
Ron was preceded in death by his parents Joe and Ramona Peluso and his son Dan Peluso.
Ron owned and operated the Union 76 Station located in Kent at James & Benson for over 20 years. He was famous for his reader board that displayed all sorts of quips, jabs and thought provoking statements. Most importantly, Ron was famous for his huge heart and great business practices. He knew how to treat his customers as family and welcomed everyone with that smile and always a joke or two.
Ron was a member of the Elks Club; American Legion; Jeep Club and a lifetime member of the NRA.
Ron and Kathy spent 5 years traveling around the United States and made so many more friends along the way. In 2010 they traveled to England; France; Switzerland and Italy with family and close friends.
Ron absolutely loved sports especially baseball. He was a fantastic player, coach and an umpire. He was the assistant girls fast pitch coach at Kent Meridian High School in the eighties. Hunting was such a big part of Ron's life even after Parkinson's disease made it much more difficult for him. Ron served our country in the U.S. Air Force as a K9 police officer. In honor of his service to this country, Ron will be laid to rest at Tahoma National Cemetery on October 28, 2013 at 1 PM. A gathering will begin at 2 PM at the Kent American Legion Hall.
