PINDER, Ronald Gale
76, died peacefully at his home surrounded by his family Thursday, March 12, 2015. He was a loving husband to Janell Pinder, a wonderful father to Pat Pinder and Penny Pinder Metzkes, grandfather to five grandchildren, Patrick Pinder, Garrett Pinder, Paige Pinder, Casey Metzkes and Max Metzkes.
He served as a Medic in the ARMY. He was an inspiring school teacher at Tarpon Springs High School. He enjoyed announcing the TSHS football games where others were exposed to his humorous witty side.
He never lost his appetite for good friends and food, nor his ability to have fun. He appreciated a good handshake and had a solid grip to the end.
A family poem in the spirit of Ron Pinder:
He loved and touched many lives through-out the years
To this he’d say ?shed no tears?
Remember me thinking of the best to times
To this he’d say ?I was a maker of rhymes?
At some point, all things must come to an end
To this he’d say ?I did it well my friends?
Although we are sadly deepened by our loss, we are forever grateful for the times we shared with him.
A Celebration of Life will take place at the Elks Lodge, Tarpon Springs, Florida on April 4th, 2015 from 3:00 P.M. – 6:00 P.M.
