Ronald A. Netherland passed away at his home in Robinson on Saturday, December 22, 2018, after a long battle with pulmonary disease. Ron was born to F.A. Netherland and Dorothy Mae Truehitt on July 3, 1943, in Vallejo, California. In 1949, the Netherland family moved to Waco, Texas, and made their home on South 3rd Street.
Ron was a devoted family man who married Carolyn Joy Young on June 12, 1970. He began his career at Safeway as a part-time sacker at the age of 15 and worked his way up to store manager. He took pride in knowing all aspects of the grocery business and supporting his community until he retired in 2015. Along with his career, he served in the Texas National Guard in the 1960s. Although not a man of many words, he loved his family deeply and would do anything to help them. He cherished family gatherings and seeing all the relatives, especially his two children and four grandchildren, who were the apples of his eye.
Ron was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include wife, Carolyn; son, Clinton A. Netherland and wife Beth; daughter, Karen Marie Netherland Scanlan and husband Matt; mother-in-law, Eva Young; brother Kenneth A. Netherland and wife, Mary Dea; sister, Janice Payne and husband, Jimmy; brother-in-law, Robert Young; grandchildren, Madelyn Riley and Lauren A Scalan, Joseph Luke and Jacob Ryan Netherland; nieces and nephews, Christine Lott and husband Jason, Kara Lena Young, Lance Payne and wife Shelia, Kelly Faulkenbery and husband Corbett, David Netherland and wife Tracy, Tammy Shinder-Netherland and husband Michael; and many other great nieces and nephews
Graveside services will be held at 3 pm Thursday December 27, at TK Cemetery, ½ mile south off Hwy. 31, on TK Parkway (FM 939), Axtell, Texas. The family will receive visitors from 6-8 pm Wednesday December 26, at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Dr. Waco. Pallbearers will be Lance Payne, David Netherland, Andrew Netherland, Garrett Faulkenbery, Cameron Faulkenbery, Logan Faulkenbery, and Brandon Ferguson.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the American Lung Association.

I met Ron about 4 years ago when Carolyn was in the hospital doing physical therapy on her ankle. He had me laughing so hard, he was a man with little words unless you got him to talking about their grand-babies. Then a light could not shine any better than his eyes did. But, on another note he could have you or anyone else in stitches from laughing, especially if he was talking about Carolyn moving his stuff, his favorite saying was " if I ask for it I want it and put it over there," and he may not use it for several more hours or days, but he could tell you where he put or had someone put it there. He could talk about Carolyn all day but when he was talking you could see the love and respect he had for her. He will surely be missed, rest in peace my friend.

I met Mr Netherland 3 years ago. He walked through the front door and I announced him as “ you must be the boyfriend” to Mrs Netherland. It just stuck. We became very close that year and we adopted each other into our families. My children thought the world of him and myself. He wasn’t a man of many words but you knew he cared. Boy do I remember the faces of asking him if he wanted chicken for lunch, haha. RIP Boyfriend, you were such a great man and a loving husband to Mrs Netherland. I knew that when I wanted to be a nurse I would touch lives, well you and Mrs Netherland have touched my life dearly and I will always cherish you both!
