Sept. 18, 1957 ~ Feb.12, 2012
Ron died February 12th, 2012, in a sudden accident at his home in Nine Mile Falls, WA. Ron was born September 18th, 1957 in Seattle, WA to Leigh and Penny Haight.
He graduated from Woodway High School before starting his long and successful career in the family business, Haight Roofing Co., Inc.
Ron was survived by his wife, Diane; his loving mother, Penny; children Jake Haight, Ricky and wife Kandice, Amanda, Alysia and Robby Krieger; brothers Mike and wife Larinda, Gary and wife Linda; and sister Wendy and husband Todd. He was preceded in death by his father, Leigh Haight.

His gentle smile, generous heart and strong presence brought so much joy to our family.
I never thought I’d find a man with so much strength and feeling,
A man with such integrity and goodness in his heart.
The more I knew, the deeper I appreciated and loved him.
I realize he may not have been as perfect as I saw him,
Yet in my eyes and in my heart, there was no one else on earth more genuine and precious than my one and only True Love.
I thank God for leading me to him and I only pray all of you will
cherish your loved ones as Ron and I deeply and endlessly cherished each other.
