He was born in Itasca County, MN on August 23rd, 1938 to Anselm and Saima (Antilla) Luoma and lived most of his 80 years in Minnesota. After receiving a degree in Education from Concordia College, he taught 6th grade in Glencoe. He returned to Mankato State to become an elementary school principal, and completed his lifelong career in education as a superintendent of schools. Ron was a devoted husband to Carol (Lidburg Carlson) for nearly 33 years. They enjoyed traveling and collecting antiques. Ron was an avid golfer, hunter, and fisherman. He enjoyed bowling and playing poker with his buddies. In the last year of his life, he moved to Tennessee to be closer to his family, and became a beloved resident of Parkview Senior Living. He is preceded in death by an infant brother, his parents, his wife Carol and her four children, a sister, Shirley Ogden, and two brothers-in-law, Dale Ogden, and Billy Trobec.
