Ronald “Ron” Raymond Cunha, Jr.

Ronald “Ron” Raymond Cunha, Jr., age 62, of Ione, CA, passed away Tuesday, March 10, 2020 in Jackson, CA. Ronald was born in Alameda, CA on July 20, 1957, a son of Ray' Mona Kelene (Bass)  and Ronald Raymond Cunha, Sr. 

Our Beloved Ron was a loving and devoted Husband, Father, and Grandfather.  A natural outdoorsman and avid sports enthusiast, every moment spent barbequing, drinking keystones, and enjoying a bowl of chocolate ice cream will be in remembrance of him. He successfully built homes and worked on businesses, including the Ione Hotel, across Northern California for 35 years, 15 of which were spent with the Carpenters Union, Local #713. Ron was a mentor to so many young men in Amador and loved them all, just as he did all of his family and friends. He truly thought the world of his wife and loved her with everything he had. His grandchildren, children and daughter-in-laws were some things that made him truly happy. Thank you to his wife, Debby, and to Dr. David Miklos and his staff at Stanford University who helped him with his long battle with leukemia. There seldom are times when words truly fail to express how much somebody is loved and Ron is loved and missed forever and a day. He was an extraordinary man.

Ron is survived by his loving wife, Debbie; daughter, Rachel Cunha; sons, Ronald Cunha, III, Aaron (Samantha) Cunha; mother, Ray’ Mona Cunha; father,  Ronald Cunha, Sr.; sister, Cindy ( Matthew) Harris; brothers, Steve, (Sharon) Cunha, Tony (Christina) Cunha, John (Melissa) Cunha; grandchildren, Phoebe, Sophia, Carter and Lucas. He was preceded by his sister, Teresa Klobas. 

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.danerimortuary.com and signing the guest book.
