Ronald Warner Obituary

Ron was born the son of a Portuguese immigrant printer, and an Oakland, CA raised Irish socialite. Ron thrived in his youth while attending Page Military Academy, and enlisted into the U.S. Navy at 16 years of age. Ron did two tours with the Pacific Fleet, and was stationed in Guam. While in the port of San Francisco and on shore leave, Ron met, courted, and married an Oregon sharecroppers daughter; Beth. Ron and Beth settled into married life, and raised a family in their Santa Monica home. Ron worked for General Telephone as a lineman for several years, while studying the Uniform Plumbing Code and attending Mechanical Engineering classes at night. Ron setup and established Bay Area Plumbing Company, a new construction business that specialized in new construction of large concrete subterranean apartment buildings, commercial and residential dwellings, and restaurants; all of which he also mechanically engineered himself. Ron also engineered and installed the first Methane Gas Vapor Barrier Retrieval System in the underground methane fire plagued Fairfax district of L.A. While plumbing high end restaurants in Venice, CA. Ron sharpened his love for cooking fine cuisine by filling in on the cook line as a Sioux chef for several world class chefs… his Caesar salad, lobster ravioli in sea urchin sauce, and prime rib will be deeply missed. Ron took time out daily from his business and family, and could be routinely found at the gym or golf course… this routine continued well into his 80s. Ron had a very keen eye for clean architectural lines and design, and built several stunning homes for himself, family, and friends. In the later years of his life, Ron often played chess and poker online during the day, and watched sports in the evening, or enjoyed a bottle of CA grown wine and outdoor fireplace, and always under a beautiful CA Central Coast sky… Chin-Chin Ron!! Ron is survived by two children, three grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.
