Ronald Chadsey

May 7, 1952 — April 21, 2021

Ronald Ray Chadsey (Ron), age 68, passed away peacefully at his home in Santaquin. Ron was born on May 7th, 1952 in Murray, Utah to Le Roy Virgil and Gwendolyn Ruth Chadsey. He had 9 other siblings and worked hard at his family's dairy farm in American Fork, UT. He graduated from Pleasant Grove High School.

Some of his many jobs were at the Utah State Developmental Center (Training School) in laundry, Truck Driver, Rocky Mountain Helicopter, EMT, Alcoa, and he retired early from SAPA Aluminum Extrusions.

Although he never had children of his own, he loved his nieces and nephews, treating them as his own. Ron treated his friends like family.

His favorite place to be was at Big Horn Ranch. He owned a share in the Big Horn Ranch Association and was on the Board. He loved the people there as family and for Ron, it was home. He called it, "A little piece of Heaven". He had squirrels and chipmunks eating out of his hands. He was known by some as the "Squirrel Whisperer".

He is survived by his wife, Melody, his brothers Joe (Sharon) Chadsey, Don (Lee) Chadsey, sisters Judy Martinez, and Betty (Bob) Nielson, and several nieces and nephews.
