Ron was born in Washington D.C., son of Thomas Clary Spires and Hattie Pearl Spires. Ron proudly served in the US Navy from 1962 to 1968 and later as a police officer in Washington D.C.

Ron married the love of his life, Barbara Jo Knepp on March 14th, 1970. They resided in Deale, Maryland where their son and daughter were born then moved to Georgia in 1985.

After retiring from MSC where he worked as a machine tool consultant for many years, he and his wife made the move to Savannah, Georgia in 2012 to be closer to their grandchildren. During his time in Savannah, he became a member of the American Legion Post 184 where he made many wonderful friends. While living in Savannah he was able to expand his love of fishing with his son-in-law and grandsons.

In addition to his wife Barbara, he leaves behind his brother, Thomas Clary Spires Jr.; son, Ronald Edward Spires; daughter, Erin Alisha Williams; Son-in-law, Justin Williams; grandsons Austin Ryder Williams, Cash Labin Williams and Jax Pierce Williams; nephews, Gary Wayne Spires and David Alan Spires and niece, Sharon Marie Phillips.
