ObituaryShare A Memory

Ronald Carl Babbitt Sr., 74, completed his journey April 15, 2018 at his home with those most treasured by his side. He was born to Clarence E. and Gladys (Weber) Babbitt, March 4, 1944, in Yakima. Later he was raised by his grandparents, Earl Wade Babbitt and Viola (Bryant) Babbitt. 

 
Ron attended school in Yakima and Selah. He was proud to be part of the Selah class of 1963. On October 3, 1964 he married the love of his life, Linda Bright, and together raised their children Ron Jr and Rhonda. Right after High School he joined the US Navy and served from 1963 to 1967 during Vietnam. Afterwards he became an Optician until retiring in 2008. 
 
Family was the most important thing to Ron. He often would hop in the car and go see his children and family. Going for a ride brought him joy. He especially enjoyed having his granddaughters over. He was a loving husband, proud father, and grandfather. 
 
Ron is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Linda, son, Ron Jr (Brianne) Babbitt, daughter, Rhonda (Tony) St. George, granddaughters, Emilea and Victorea Bailey-Babbitt, and Grace St. George, and sister, Marilyn Hacker, as well as many more friends and family members. He is preceded in death by his father, Clarence (Mary) Babbitt, mother, Gladys Schultz, as well as his grandparents who raised him, Earl and Viola Babbitt. 
 
We wish to thank Leslie Simmons, of Astria Hospice, for her wonderful care of Dad and our family during this time. She went above and beyond.
