May 25, 1957 - October 10, 2021
Ronald Stuart Rold, II, passed from this life on October 10, 2021. Ron, 64, was born on May 25, 1957, in Dade County, Florida. He was the son of Doug and Norma Rold. Ron's life ended unexpectedly while he was working at home. Ron was a United States Navy veteran who proudly served on a nuclear submarine. As a result of being hit by a drunk driver, Ron lost both of his legs as a young man and had been in a wheelchair for the past 32 years. Ron, however, never let his disability slow him down or define him. He had a real zest for life and for figuring out how to do things. He loved all kinds of cars, especially hot rods. He enjoyed fishing and listening to anything featuring a saxophone. His musical choices ranged from CCR all the way to jazz. Ron was intelligent and knew how to repair almost anything. He had been the proud owner of Franklin's Best Power Tool Repair for the last five years. His knowledge spanned taxes to tools and many subjects in between. Ron had a gentle spirit about him and made friends easily. A part of his life that was missing after losing his beloved German Shepherd, Lola, had recently been filled by a stray cat that Ron named Milton, never knowing if Milton was male or female. Ron's greatest love was his daughter, Maili. They spoke daily about happenings and even the most mundane things. After Milton's arrival, he had also happily become part of their conversations. Ron is survived by his daughter, Maili Atkinson (Terry) of Franklin, NC; his grandchildren, Kylie Cope of Plant City, Florida, and Thailer Carver of Franklin; his siblings, Jamie Rold, April Moore, and Georgia Roper, also of Franklin; and his best friend, Rich Tilley. Ron was preceded in death by his parents. No public services are planned. Moffitt Family Funeral Care is honored to serve Ron's family.
