Ronald Floyd Hamblin

January 29, 1941 — November 20, 2023

Ronald Floyd Hamblin passed away on Monday, November 20, 2023, in his humble home that he built in Syracuse 59 years ago after a valiant fight with a blood disease. Ron was born January 29, 1941, to loving, hard working parents, Floyd and Glentine Hamblin. He grew up on the family farm in Syracuse, Utah where he milked cows, thinned beets, and farmed the precious soil. He loved dirt and working in the soil growing crops. His love of dirt led him to his career-operating a backhoe. He was so precise that one might say he could "scratch your back, pick your teeth, or part your hair", with his bucket! He dug many trenches, sewers, and water lines in Utah and surrounding states. If you were in the plumbing industry, you probably worked with Ron. He trained many professionals who are in the business today. He worked for 55 years "digging in the dirt"!

He was a proud graduate of Davis High School where he loved all sports, especially playing baseball with his best friend, Lanny Holbrook. Ron was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served the Lord in the Great Lake Mission. Later, he enjoyed many church callings, making new friends and serving others. Ron loved the Savior and lived an exemplary life for his family.

Ron loved camping, fishing, and hunting. He loved watching and supporting all his grandchildren in their sporting events, piano, and dance recitals. He looked forward to our many family traditions. He loved to garden and especially loved his tomato patch. He also enjoyed sharing his homegrown potatoes with friends and neighbors.

On September 23, 1964, Ron married Rochelle Murray in the Logan Temple. They raised their seven children on their little farm in Syracuse. It’s known around town as the “Hamblin Compound”, but we like to call it “Hamblin Haven”. Ron served in the Air Force Reserves. The experiences he had there were some of his favorite stories to tell.

Ron is survived by his wife, Rochelle, and adored by his seven children: Angela (Tim) Taylor, Tyler (Tara) Hamblin, Travis (Lisa) Hamblin, Rory (Jennie) Hamblin, Zachary (LaDawn) Hamblin, Noelle (Clay) Kelley, and Cambria (Brodie) Panter; 38 talented grandchildren and 33 precious great grandchildren. He is also survived by three brothers, Glen, Stanley, and Steven. As well as two sisters, Joyce Kearns and Janice Wilson. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Janette, and a beloved granddaughter Marlise (Marli) Hamblin.

Dad, we will miss you so much! However, your legacy will live on forever. Because of you, we will “Think Celestial”!
