Ronald H. Muir, 71, Carbondale, died Saturday at Geisinger Community Medical Center. His wife is Dorothy (Karas) Castle Muir.
Born in Scranton, son of Darwin H. and DeSales Kathryn Rosler Muir, he was head of security of Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City and retired from SCI Waymart. Ron was a United States Navy Vietnam veteran who served on the USS Ozborn BT—3. He took great pride in his country and his flag. It is very fitting that Ron left this world on one of his favorite days, July 4.
Ron was an avid sports fan. He loved the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders and rarely missed a home game. He also followed the New York Yankees and New York Jets. He was a member of American Legion Post 465 and Mason’s Harmony Lodge 18, Toms River, N.J. He took great pride in his train and coin collections. He also looked forward to his daily visit with coffee buddies at McDonald’s. Time spent with his family was something that always brought him joy. He will be missed.
He is also survived by sons, Paul (Alida) Muir, Virginia Beach, Va.; and Fred (Trisha) Castle, Carbondale; two daughters, Doreen Kuttrubis, Simpson; and Tammy (Bill) Fives, Scott Twp.; 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren; two brothers, Darwin (Lee) Muir, Waymart; and Jimmy (Jean) Muir, Carbondale; two sisters, Darlene (Johnny) Domiano, Lake Harbor, N.J.; and Bonita Milligan, Lanoka Harbor, N.J.; several nieces and nephews.
The funeral will be Wednesday with Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. in St. Rose of Lima, Carbondale. Friends are invited to attend the Mass. Due to the current public health recommendations, masks and social distancing are required.
Interment will be private at the convenience of the family at Ocean County Memorial Park, Toms River, N.J.
