Ronald Gary (Ron) Jeppesen, 62, of Missoula, passed away suddenly of natural causes on November 25th at St. Patrick Hospital.

Ron grew up in Missoula, attending school there with the exception of one year in Las Cruces, New Mexico where he graduated from high school.

From there he worked at the Meson Physics Facility in Los Alamos, New Mexico and with a Silicon Valley company in Sunnyvale, California. The last thirty years, he was able to tele-commute, allowing him to live here in Montana enjoying the outdoors.
