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.

He was also very passionate about music and reading. He had a fondness for the OLD WEST. His favorite author was Louis L’Amour.

Ron was a wonderful cook and was famous for his french toast, homemade soups and perch fries. He loved his hoodies and his orange FILAS. He made “wicked cool” chainmail jewelry. He loved learning new things.

Ron (“Moon”, Dad, Ronnie, “Lil Ronnie”, “RoundEye”) was a patient, warm and caring man with a big heart and a wonderful sense of humor. He was lighthearted, loved to laugh, and was willing to help everyone. He touched many lives and will be “wicked” hugely missed by his loving wife, Tammy M. “Squirrely” (Stambaugh); his adoring son, Hunter; his sisters, April (Tom) Hunt of Villa Rica, Ga., Rhonda (Steve) Foster of Ashby, Mass., Tracy (Roy) Kok of Norton, Mass., and Kelly Carignan of Salsbury, Mass.; his brothers, Clifford (Connie) Emus of Conneaut, Ohio, Paul (Tathi) Emus of Tampa, Fla., Seth Emus of Tampa, Fla., and Jamie (Crystal) Emus of Conneaut, Ohio; his sisters, Dawn Childs of Conneaut, Ohio, and Rae (Mike) Bulmann of Detroit, Mich.; his aunt and uncle, Ralph and Marilyn Emus of Conneaut, Ohio, who raised him; many aunts and uncles; 26 nieces and nephews; three great-nieces and nephews; one great-niece on the way; his loving “Thor, Loki and Spooky”; many lifelong friends and many new friends.
