Ronald James Garey, age 83, of Lesterville, (Lopez), PA, passed away on Monday, April 26, 2021, at his home with his loving family at his side.


          Ron was born November 20, 1937, in Pittston, PA, a son of the late Joseph & Madge Borsos Garey.  He graduated from the Pittston High School, a member of the class of 1956.  He joined the United States Air Force and met his wife, the former Rose Lee Jimenez in Oklahoma City, OK, and they were married on March 6, 1961, in Shawnee, OK.  They moved to Lopez, PA, in 1977, when Ron retired after 20 years of service with the United States Air Force.  Rose Lee predeceased him on February 4, 2019.
