He was born in Ely to Caesar and Christine Cadari on October 24, 1934. College and working in an underground iron ore mine for one year was not appealing. The Navy came calling in 1954 and became his 20-year career, retiring in 1974 at NWC China Lake, CA, then he began employment at NWC as a system analyst. He served in various squadrons, ISS Coral Sea (CVA43) with deployment to Vietnam, Naval Air Facilities including NAS Kenitra, Morocco.
He married Joyce Whitt of Ely in 1960 and together they traveled in the U.S. and lived in Morocco for three years enjoying travels in Europe - especially Spain with the festival of Grapes and Blessings of the Vineyards by Cardinals and Bishops of the Church. They also took in bullfights (not so pleasant), shopping trips to Gibraltar, beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, sand dunes of the Sahara and crossed the Atlantic twice via ocean cruise lines.
Ron was a life member of the Fleet Reserve Association, American Legion, VFW, NRA and supported veteran groups, DVA, wounded Warriors, and Vietnam Memorial. He enjoyed pool, bowling, square dancing, all types of fishing, reading (history “buff”).
Ron was preceded in death by his parents, an infant daughter and daughter Christine Shields.
