Ronald Stewart Vaughan
Ronald Stewart Vaughan went to be with the Lord on his 77th birthday, Feb. 4, 2020.
He was born in Grenada in 1943 to Homer and Omalene Vaughan. He graduated from John Rundle High School in Grenada and went on to graduate from Ole Miss where he served as a Platoon Leader in the ROTC.

Following his time in the military, Ron became a banker. He loved his customers, and they loved him. During his career, he was honored to be chosen as a Daily Journal People’s Choice Award winner for favorite banker. He was the epitome of a personal banker and had a heart for taking care of others which was evident in his personal and professional life.
Ron was an avid fisherman, loved to travel and loved life. He was kind, caring and compassionate. He always had a smile on his face and was a friend to everyone he met. He was faithful in prayer and loved his church family and Sunday School class. Words can’t describe how much he’ll be missed.
