Ronald Eugene McGregor

Ron passed away at Swedish Medical Center on April 28, 2024 with his family by his side from pneumonia.  He was born on December 24, 1935 in Stafford, Kansas to Robert and Eva McGregor, who are deceased. He is survived by his loving wife, Judi, of 62 years, 3 daughters:  Kelly McGregor, Kristi Grady (Jeff) and Leslie Schooley (Dave) and 4 grandsons:  Austin Baker; Hayden, Reid and Blake Schooley.  Also survived by 2 sisters:  DeLores Haas and Pam Peel (Bob) in Kiowa, Colorado.  He also had a deceased sister, Nadine Mott. 

His family moved to Elizabeth, Colorado in 1944 and he graduated from Elizabeth High School in 1954. After high school Ron got a job with the FBI in Washington, D.C. where he took classes at George Washington University.  He decided to return to Colorado with the opportunity to work with his dad building Hutchison Homes in Harvey Park and building a bridge in Trinidad, Colorado.  He treasured  working with his dad since his dad died shortly after he returned from the Army.  

He was drafted into the U. S. Army and reported for duty on October 1, 1958 to Ft. Carson, Colorado for basic training.  After completing basic training, he was shipped to Heidelberg, Germany where he completed his tour of duty and was discharged on September 21, 1960. 

Ron had worked for the Department of Interior, Bureau of Reclamation prior to being drafted and returned to their printing office after he completed his tour of duty with the Army.  He continued working for them for 37 years and had been their Printing Officer for a number of years before retiring in May 1994. 

He was a huge Colorado sports fan with season tickets to the Denver Broncos since 1967 and attended 2 Super Bowl losses in the late 1980's.  He also shared season tickets to the Colorado Rockies for a number of years. 

Ron loved traveling with our local SunnyBrook RV Club to rally's around the U.S. and weekend trips in Colorado.  Winters were enjoyed in Mesa, Arizona for years where he golfed with his buddies from North Dakota, Minnesota and Canada.  He had missed the warmer and fun winters the past 4 years.  He also enjoyed golfing with good friends in Colorado.   

He will be missed by his family and friends, but happy we had him as a husband, father, grandfather and friend as long as we did. 

Committal Service will be held Tuesday, May 21, 2024, 12:30pm, Fort Logan National Cemetery.
