Ronald Glen Fry

July 17, 1935 ~ June 23, 2014

Ronald Glen “Ron” Fry was born July 17, 1935, in Tulare, CA and was the son of Harold and Alma Fry. Ron graduated from Exeter High School in 1953, and retained many close friendships with his classmates. Ron attended Porterville Junior College, as well as San Jose City College, and worked for the Department of Mental Hygiene. In 1966, Ron purchased an apple orchard in Manson, WA and spent the rest of his career as an orchardist. In 1975, Ron purchased a Cessna 150 airplane, and then learned to fly it (with the help of Instructor, Ron Jeffries) and upgraded to a larger plane so he could take his family flying. Ron loved his family, flying, boating on Lake Chelan, teaching his daughters to drive anything with wheels, and swapping stories with fellow farmers at the local coffee shop in Manson.

Ron leaves behind his wife of 48 years, LeDale “Dale”; daughters, Ginger (Bill) Zacher, Elizabeth (Pat) Gilsoul, and Julie Martin-Stone; grandsons, Chris and Cameron Easley, Jason and Brandon Gilsoul, and Gage Martin; granddaughter, Natalie Gilsoul; as well as several great-grandchildren. He also leaves behind his sisters, Patricia Avery of Walnut Grove, CA, and Jill (Jim) Herzog of Courtland, CA; brother, Jack Fry of Tonasket, WA; and several nieces and nephews.

At Ron’s request, No Services are being held. A private family function was scheduled. Telford’s Chapel of the Valley is handling arrangements.
