Mr. Ronald Edward Brazas, Sr., age 80, of Barnesville, Georgia, passed away on Saturday, April 17, 2021.
Ron was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Friday, June 14, 1940 to the late Frank Brazas and the late Claire Valentino Brazas. He was also preceded in death by his daughter, Susan. Ron grew up in Billerica, Massachusetts and graduated Essex Aggie where he began his love of dairy farming and cattle judging. At 17, Ron entered the United States Army where he served as a helicopter mechanic from 1957-1960.
After completing his military service, Ron moved to middle Georgia where he began farming and made his home for the next 55 years. Ron was a Christian who would always describe himself as friend of the Lord his savior. He raised a family and was a loved father, brother, grandfather, and friend to many in his more than 50 years in middle Georgia. In addition, Ron was also a hotrodder, cowboy, cattleman and master tinkerer which he pursued right up to his final days. Ron was intelligent and bold, never afraid to share his opinion (whether requested or not). His lively personality will truly be missed by those that knew him well.
