Ronald Wayne Lunt
Ronald Wayne Lunt was born on December 28th, 1958 on a cold, snowy morning in Shawnee, Oklahoma to David and Virginia Lunt. Ron was a courageous man who fought hard during his almost 3-year journey with cancer. On January 28, 2021, Ron finished his race here on earth and the Lord called him Home.
He always wanted to play Army with his big brother Roy. Just shortly after his sister Sharon was born, they moved to Duncanville. The house was unfinished, and Roy and Ronny would play Army for hours on the stairs.
His grandmother lived in Waco so the family would travel there many weekends to spend time with her. Forced to watch Lawrence Welk on Saturday night was grueling entertainment for the three Lunt kids, but this is a memory they shared fondly later in life. In the summers Roy and Ronny would go outside and get wet with the garden hose and then run inside to get directly in front of their Grandmother's watercooler trying to stay cool in the Texas hot summers with no A/C.
Better known as Ronny when he was growing up. He was smart and funny. His sense of humor was the kind that would make you belly laugh. Same with his personality, you wanted to make sure you were around for the one-liners.
He graduated from Duncanville High School in 1977. After High school he decided his name needed to be more professional, so he shortened it to Ron. He attended UTA for a short period and with the help of a neighbor got an interview at a large bank in downtown Dallas. This started him on his path to his career in the banking industry. Banking came easy to Ron and he worked hard to achieve his goals to have a highly successful career.
During a meeting at a different branch Ron meet the love of his life, Patti Teitelbaum. He knew marrying Patti was the best decision of his life. She has been the most loving and supportive wife during hard times and good times.
Raised in an artistic family Ron did not discover his artistic abilities until later in life. He took a welding class at a community college and began creating metal sculptures for family members. It took off from there when people in the community noticed pieces he had made. His main goal in created the art pieces was strictly to bring joy to others. From there he began collecting nostalgic memorabilia. The collection grew too large, so he decided to open a booth at Old Town Village in Waxahachie. His booth became an instant hit because it catered to men. This gave him an outlet to keep busy after he retired. He loved his time at Old Town Village and made dear friends with many of the vendors.
Ron had a passion for running. He entered many 5K races around the metroplex. On his second race he had ever ran, he got 2nd place (as he called it in the "old man category").
Ron would be described as a gentle, quiet man. But when he had something to say you better listen because you knew it would be good. We loved Ron because of his giving heart. He constantly gave of his time and resources to help others. If he got a call to help his family anytime during the day or night, he would not hesitate for a second to help. His father & mother-in-law considered him an extension of their own family saying he was their 5th son. When his father-in-law was in bad health Ron was always there to assist with anything that needed to be done and when his own mother passed away, he stepped in to take care of his father's affairs. He was a loving brother to his siblings, and he deeply loved his wife Patti, his two sons Ryan and Daniel and his family. Ron will be deeply missed and forever remembered by so many.
He is preceded in death by his parents, David and Virginia Lunt; father-in-law, Jerry D. Teitelbaum.
