LOUDON – Ronald G. "Ron" Michaud, 75 of Loudon, passed away surrounded by his loved ones following a hard fought battle against dementia on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.
Born on May 26, 1943 in Woburn, MA he was the son of the late Ella Rose (Ducharme) Michaud.
Ron was a lifetime entrepreneur, who passed on his strong work ethic to his children and those lucky enough to be in his presence. He was a jack of all trades. Some of his adventures included going to MIT for drafting, owning an ice cream truck, The Wheel Restaurant in Epping, and a home improvement company. Among other things he was also a Scout Master, a Fire Warden, and an Electrician's apprentice. His proudest accomplishment of all was raising his family. Ron had a phenomenal sense of humor which he will be remembered for. The laughs, jokes, water and shaving cream fights, and the pranks were wrapped up with good family values.
He loved camping, where he would make his famous chicken wings that were so good his family would battle for a position in line to enjoy them. No matter how much everyone begged, he would never share his secret recipe. He also loved working on puzzles, going on cruises and taking photos. Above all, he loved spending every day with his wife.
