Ronald Stuart Draney

November 8, 1941 ~ August 3, 2019 (age 77)


Ronald was a loving father, step-father, grandpa, husband and all around friend to many, teacher of many things, overflowing with vast knowledge and always full of patience.

Ronald S. Draney, we all loved you so very much; sometimes unsaid, but always felt and always greatly appreciated.  You will be missed more than you will ever know.

Ron passed away suddenly Saturday night, August 3, 2019.  He was born November 8, 1941 in Ogden, UT to Rulon and Jennie Draney.  He graduated from Ben Lomond High School in 1959.  He also attended Weber State University for 3 years. 

He was a High Priest in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Ron worked at Hill Air Force Base for 27 years in the Minuteman Missile Program, etc.  He retired and started his own company, B & D Pest Control Inc in Ogden, UT back in 1990.  His company was a huge asset to many private companies including Thiokol, Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City and numerous building contractors, mortgage companies, banks, and private citizens that required pest control, damp-proofing, pre-treats, snowplowing etc.

Ron had a tremendous amount of love to all animals.  He loved flying his airplane, deep-sea fishing, camping, hunting, and 4-wheeling and above all he loved spending time with his family and he adored his five children, 14 grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.

Ron married the love of his life Mary Grace Osborne on July 25, 1992.  They both brought children into the marriage.  Together they have five children: Kelly Cragun (Roger), Brent Draney, Spencer Jayson Draney (Alesha), Kristen Strebel (Jeff) and Andrew Osborne (Michele).

Per Ron’s request there will be no viewing or funeral service.
