Honor Mission
William Ronald Girlinghouse, Veteran
USA –
Ruston, Louisiana – 05-06-20

ABOUT THE MISSION:

William Ronald (Ron) Girlinghouse, 63, left this earth peacefully on April 21, 2020. Ron was a very strong willed yet stubborn man who, for many years, has laughed in the face of death and surpassed many medical issues. Born September 10, 1956 in Minden, LA, he spent his childhood and teen years growing up, making friends and memories, and raising hell in Webster Parish. Ron joined the Army in 1973 where he served and spent time in Germany. While on leave in 1975, his Army buddy, introduced his sister to Ron, where they fell in love and were married on March 13, 1976. For the next 45 years, they raised three children, traveled to many states chasing the oilfield, rode their Harleys across the country, were lifetime members of the Elk Lodge and had many great adventures together. As Ron’s health became an issue, they made the decision to follow their dreams and settle down near the lake in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Over the next several years, his health gradually declined, but he stayed strong through it all so he could see his grand babies grow up. Ron was blessed with 7 grandchildren that he loved the whole world. In his eyes, those babies could do no wrong. Ron is survived by his wife of 45 years, 3 children, 7 grandchildren, 2 siblings, and many more beloved family members.
