Ronald “Ron” Allen Megee, 74, a retired US Navy Chief Hospital Corpsman (HMC), passed away unexpectedly at his home in Bradenton, Florida, on the morning of May 13, 2022. Beloved husband, father, and grandfather, he leaves behind his wife of
33 years, Cynthia “Cindy”, son, Timothy, daughters, Rhonda, Kristine, and Inga. The son of the late Allen Morris Megee and Margaret Lucille Taylor, Ron was born in Alameda, California, on July 11, 1947. After graduating from Georgetown High School, Delaware in 1965, Ron enlisted in the Navy on September 14, 1966, where he served as an athletic trainer at the US Naval Academy and as a Corpsman in Vietnam. Upon his return from overseas, Ron separated from the military for a short time before returning to service. He rejoined the Navy on March 7, 1974, completing assignments in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, and Maine. After 26 total years of honorable service, Ron retired from the Navy on June 30, 1994.
On September 15, 1989, Ron was united in matrimony with Cynthia Kay Beaumont of Royal Oak, Michigan. After his retirement from the Navy, Ron and Cindy settled in Windham, Maine, where he was the head of security at Mercy Hospital in Oirtland, Maine, the same hospital where Cindy worked as an operating room nurse. Ron enjoyed snowmobiling and spending time at their cabin on Embden Pond while they lived in Maine. In June 2005, they moved to Rydal, Georgia where they raised Egyptian Arabian horses and spent time camping and boating on Lake Altoona. They relocated to Bradenton, Florida in April 2019 to enjoy the ocean breezes and views of the intracoastal waterway.
