Ronald E. Amos, age 86, of Wooster, passed away at his residence following a short period of declining health.

He was born on October 31, 1934 in Wooster to Justus E. and Frances E. (Collette) Amos and has been a Wayne County resident for most of his adult life.

"Stog" as he was called by friends was a U.S. Navy veteran having enlisted after graduating from Shreve High School in 1952 at age 17.

Ron was stationed at various navy bases for additional training in electronics, Patuxent River, Jacksonville, Fl, Norman, OK and several other bases in California where he worked on electrical wiring Navy planes. Much of his Navy enlistment Ron flew on Navy planes as spotter over the Atlantic Ocean, searching for Russian submarines during the Korean War. Ronald's basic seaman training was at Norfolk Navy base.

After his honorable career in the Navy, he also had many tales to relate to about living on a Holmes County farm with his family during much of his childhood where he learned at an early age to drive a farm tractor.

Later during his working life, Ron was a semi-truck driver and much of this time he worked for companies that delivered pipe to remote construction sites in Ohio. He had interesting stories to tell about the many hazards delivering loads in dangerous terrain.

After retirement he lived at College Hills Retirement Center on Portage Road, Wooster. Ohio for many years. Ron's hobby was working on his cars, an older dump truck, reading magazines about racing cars, American Legion magazines and caring for plants that decorated his apartment doorway .

He enjoyed holiday dinners with the Mohr and McCauley families very much.
Ron was a long time member of American Legion Shreve Post #67.

Surviving are a sister, B. Jean Amos Mohr, of Wooster; a daughter Kelly Rice; a niece Cindy (Bob) McCauley; a nephew Mike (Laura) Mohr; a grandnephew, Ben (Paige ) McCauley and grand nieces, Mikaela Mohr, Cassandra Mohr.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brothers, Gerald B. "Jerry" Amos and Jon A. Amos.

Memorial contributions may be made in lieu of flowers to: Shreve American Legion Post 67, 10094 Shreve Rd., Shreve, Ohio 44676.

As per his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private inurnment will be at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery in Rittman at a later date.
