Wrey, Ronald "Ron" Warren (Dunlap)

Friday, June 22, 2018

Ronald (Ron) Warren Wrey, of Dunlap, passed away Tuesday, June 19. Ron entered the US Marine Corps after High School, he graduated with college opportunities but chose instead to serve his country. Ron was known as “Little Einstein” in school. He even chose to take advanced algebra and calculus during study hall. He excelled in all his classes, but especially math and sciences. In the Marines he received radio and electronics training that set him up for his long career with IBM. Ron was not happy unless he was busy, so years after retiring from IBM he went to work at Georgia Tech managing a technical team. After leaving Georgia Tech and finally retiring for real, Ron moved to Dunlap with his wife May in 2016. Ron was very giving, he had a servant's heart and was always helping others. If Ron heard you mention an interest in something or maybe mention something you needed or wanted, he would often show up by surprise with that something, and would never accept more than a thank you in return; he found so much happiness in giving others the tools to develop their interests and hobbies. Ron was always “fixing” something for someone as well as for the challenge to make it work again. He didn’t easily accept that things were “broken.” His inquisitive nature kept him moving from one project to the next and he was always happy to share what he learned. He always said let’s try it out, and he did just that. His life was full of experiences that taught himself and everyone around him to never stop asking how and why, and to enjoy the discovery.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents, James Walton and Bonita Blanche (Porsch) Wrey; his brother, Danny Dale Wrey; and his great-grandchild, Gabriel Wrey.

Ron is survived by his wife, May Jun Qing Wrey; his children, Jeffery Wrey, Gregory (Nancy) Wrey, Leslie (Steven) Riccard and Kathy (Bobby) Fishbough; the mother of his children, Margaret Sue Wrey; his step-children, Sandy Zhao (Jianhua Tian), Cindy Zhao (Han Liu); his siblings, James (Dinah Sue) Wrey, Gary (Karen) Wrey, Sandra (Dale) Johnson, Jack Wrey and William Wrey; his grandchildren, Destiny Garrett, Matthew Wrey, Haden Riccard, Mitchell Riccard, Nolan Riccard, Ella Riccard, Lilly Fishbough, Macy Fishbough, Lance Fishbough and Abby Fishbough; step-grandchildren, Chelsea Liu and Hanson Liu; and his great-grandchildren, Damian Garrett, Piper Garrett and Gavin Garrett.
