Ronald Huston

New Waterford – Ronald Huston, 71, of Pinewood Drive, passed away at 5:35 p.m. Thursday, June 6th at the Salem Community Hospital, where he had been a patient.

Ron was born March 26, 1942 in New Waterford, a son of the late Otto I. and Erma E. Lipp Huston, and was a life resident of the area. Prior to his retirement, he had been employed as a driver with area trucking firms including Herriott Trucking and NulfCo. He was a U.S. Naval veteran.

He was an avid sports fan, including horse racing, and he could be hard headed and be one of the stubbornest men alive, but was a caring and loving father.

He is survived by a son, Craig Huston, Walton, KY and a daughter, Kristine Conybeare, San Francisco, CA, two sisters, Charlene Mesmer, Columbiana and Helen L. Claypool, East Palestine; and a sister-in-law, Joann Huston, also of East Palestine.

Ron was preceded in death by a brother, William W. Huston.

Services are not being observed. Arrangements were with the Oliver-Linsley Funeral home, East Palestine.
