Ron Ron, age 44, lost his battle with the disease of addic­tion. He was a good guy, who made some mistakes, and a lot of choices that ultimately took his life. He had a gentle soul and a loving heart, he lived life full throttle. His family is grateful that he is now free. The family offers this advice in their time of grief. Love your addict. Know that they are sick, and don’t allow their sickness to make you a victim as well.
Surviving Ron are his mother, Brooke Dunbar, his father Ronald Hytinen, Sr, two amazing children, Vic­toria and William Hytinen, sister, Laurie Adcock, her husband Mike and daughter Brookelynn, as well as a huge loving family of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, the family wishes you to consider a donation to one of the many charities for addiction and substance abuse.
Ronnie will be laid to rest in the ocean that he so loved to surf.
“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, As long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.”

Ronnie, you called me in June 2016, we spoke off and on for a few hours at a time, and you apologized for many things. And you told me how much you loved your family, and your children, and you told me you were tired. I knew, we both knew. I’m sorry, I wasn’t there to help you.
I will always remember, going to the block, and so, many people knew you, and loved you. And I know you and Eric (KIND) are surfing the big waves in heaven. We shared many good travels, and some bad times together. I could write a book, about our adventures. But somethings are better left as silent memories.

There is not a day that goes by that I wonder, if I did helped you. Would still be alive. I love you brother, you had a family that had so much unconditional love,;I had ever seen! Your mom, sister, and your children. with that Of all the people I know. I wish I could have saved you the most.
Today, I was in a restaurant, and a Denver fireman came in, and he looked like you.
I showed him your pictures and they said he did look like you! I remember when you performned as a fireman.

I miss you GQ!

Ron was one of rhe most coolest laid back people I remember from Windsor Woods back in the day. We all chose different paths in life but we will always remember great times at Plaza and PA. Party on Ron, you are free.

You came into our lives and we fell in love with your gentle soul and laugh and dancing eyes..You made us laugh. You always had a hug for me. I keep hearing the Christpher Cross song “SAILING”..The lyrics are beautiful. We know you must be still around . Give someone a sign or something specific. Everyone needs comforting. Sail on to wherever we go when we cross over. Loved your time in our lives.
