Ronald Raymond Rinker was born in Heidelberg, West Germany on April 5, 1979. He passed away in his sleep on Monday, September 26, 2022, in Tempe Arizona.
Ron has lived in the East Valley since 1983. He is a proud graduate of Corona Del Sol High School and Arizona State University. He spent most of his career working in the banking industry, managing bank branches, and establishing new banking areas as a Regional Sales Manager.
Ron had a huge heart. He had an impact on everyone he met and left a mark on everyone he loved. Through his personal challenges along the way, he was a caring and kind person that went the extra mile to help others no matter the effect on himself. His two children were his pride and joy – he always wanted the best for them. He took pride in guiding the people he worked with to improve their skills and knowledge. Ron made friends quickly and had a wicked sense of humor that never failed to create a smile.
Ron was predeceased by his father Gary Rinker, his brother Greg Rinker, grandparents Ruby and Ray Rinker and grandfather Robert Gill. He is survived by his children, Lauren and Robby Rinker, his mother Angela Conwell, his stepfather Dave Conwell, his brother Jason Rinker, his Grandmother Marilyn Gill and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A celebration of his life will be held on December 15th at 2:00 PM at Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery 7900 East Main Street in Mesa, Arizona. In Lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) or the American Diabetes Association (ADA), in Ron’s memory.
