GENEVA — Ronald “Moon” W. Emus III, age 44, of Geneva, Ohio, died Thursday afternoon, Jan. 23, 2014, at home.
Ron was born Oct. 25, 1969, in Winchester, Mass., the son of the late Ronald W. Emus II and Diane (Meehan) Emus. Ron graduated from South Ridge Christian Academy and attended Kent State University (Ashtabula). He was on the Deans List several times.
He was a man of many talents. Ron worked at Kmart (Conneaut), Waves Music, and many years in construction and masonry.
Ron loved and adored his wife, Tammy (Stambaugh), of 14 years (whom he fondly called “Squirrely”) and their son, Hunter. He enjoyed snuggling in with them and their dogs, “Thor and Loki”, to watch movies. He loved gaming, playing soccer, and just plain being with his son. He loved to tease them as well.
He loved all of the family road trips that he went on with his “Squirrely” and his Hunter. He especially enjoyed the ones to see his family back home in Massachusetts, where he had “wicked” great times and many “wicked” wonderful memories such as ocean fishing, Ravioli Day, many Thanksgivings, and some surprise parties.
Ron enjoyed spending time with family (Conneaut) and looked forward to game nights, sled riding, football games, and the annual Emus “Mad Santa”.
He also enjoyed working and spending time at “the shop” Emus Automotive in Conneaut. He loved fishing and hunting with the Emus Boys and many friends.
Ron was a “wicked huge” Patriots fan and often joked that he had a “man crush” on Tom Brady.
He was a Cub Scout leader of Pack 52 Saybrook and enjoyed being involved with the Boy Scouts with his son throughout the years. Some of his fondest memories were of camping, mining for herkimer diamonds, fishing, pheasant hunts, and ziplining in Hocking Hills.
He was a member of the NRA and held several archery awards. Ron had a passion for tattoos, piercings, bike runs, his Harley, and the open road. He was an avid member of the CMRO Region 13 family.
