Our beloved Ronnie peacefully passed away Sunday, surrounded by loving family. Ron Jarvis Bateman was born Dec. 5th, 1942 to Wilson William Bateman and Mary Lou Melton in Murray, Utah.
Ron graduated from Olympus High in 1960 and then served a full-time mission to Germany. Soon after returning home he married his sweetheart, Sherry Brklacich on Dec. 20, 1965 in the Logan Temple.
Professionally, he served 20 years in the Air Force with assignments to Colorado, Idaho, Germany, Texas, California, England, Nebraska, and North Dakota. After retirement, he moved to Utah and continued his career as a Dental Lab Technician.
Ron was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many callings such as Bishopric, High Counselor, Traveling Seventy, and Branch President.
He enjoyed the outdoors. He loved spending time hunting, fishing, and traveling, especially with family.
Ron was a soft-spoken man, with a servant heart. He was always helping others in need. He was adored by his five children, their beloved spouses, and 18 grandchildren.
He is survived by his dear wife of 54 years, Sharon Ann (Brklacich) and five children; Vynessa Campos (Javier), Shayne Bateman (Kylee), Hilary Jensen (Shawn), Camron Bateman (Melissa), and Lindsey Oliver (Michael). He was preceded in death by his parents.
Special thanks to medical staff at the George Whalen Veterans Hospital who helped Ron feel as comfortable as possible in the last few years of his life.
