October 24, 1948 – August 10, 2016
Ronald Lewis Veatch, 67 of New Plymouth, Idaho, passed peacefully on the morning of Wednesday August 10, 2016
He was born October 24th, 1948 to John and Martha Veatch. He graduated from Borah High in 1967, married Mary Heward in 1971 and had two children, Jacob and Levi.
Ron had a great love of trapshooting, hunting, fishing, family, friends, and his career with UPS. He worked for UPS for over 33 years and was very proud of his 30 plus years of safe driving. If you knew Ron, you quickly felt as if you were one of his longtime friends. He instantly made you feel part of his family and would spend hours exchanging stories about amazing hunting trips or the great fight a fish put up before he landed it. Like any great outdoorsman, his stories became better with time, filled with amazing detail that made you feel the experience and he never left out the ever-growing size of and length of the prize. If he was not telling tales of the outdoors he would be bragging about his family–the love of his mother, the help of his brothers, the joy of his grandkids, the accomplishments of his sons and the joy of his friends.
He is preceded in death by his father, John Veatch and is survived by his mother, Martha Veatch, brothers, Rick (Jo) and Dennis (Jan); sons, Jacob (Stacie) and Levi (Alaina); grandchildren: Vash, Vaylen, Verrick and Brooklyn and his nephew, Ryan.
