Obituary

Ronald Leroy Gaskill, 86, from Jerome, Idaho, passed away peacefully in his home on the 20th of September, surrounded by family members.
Ron attended Twin Falls High School, where he met and married his sweetheart of 65 years, Shirley Mingo. Together they had three children, traveled from coast to coast and eventually returned to Idaho, to what Ron referred to as 'God’s country.’
Ron was a career Navy man, proudly serving his country from 1949-1976. He achieved the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer Anti- Submarine Warfare. He loved sharing stories of his Naval Aviation career and had fond memories of flying around the globe, feeling honored to be a veteran of the Korean, Vietnam, and Cold Wars. Following his retirement, he returned to college to become an educator, teaching the building trades to High School students in Lewiston, Maine.
His hobbies varied from motorcycles, camping and hunting to western movies and fine woodworking. He was a lifetime member of the NRA and participated extensively in competitive shooting and achieved an Expert standing in marksmanship with the Navy Rifle and Pistol team. He will always have a place in the hearts of his friends and family.
Ron was preceded in death by his parents, Roy Gaskill and Hildred (Gaskill) Hansen, Twin Falls, his sister Shirley (Gaskill) Snyder, Washington, his wife, Shirley Gaskill, Jerome. He is survived by his Children, Don Gaskill (Francine), Cincinnati, Ohio, Debbie (Brian) Conrad, Jerome and Doug (Charmaine) Gaskill, Twin Falls, six grandchildren, Michelle (Gaskill) Robey, 1st Class Petty Officer (USN) Dan Gaskill, Brianna and Braedon Conrad, Caitlyn and Chance Gaskill, two great-grandchildren Cailyn and Harper Robey.

This week we lost an amazing father, a Great Hero and a wonderful friend. After flying over 8,000 hours with United States Navy, God accompanied him on his last flight to be reunited with his wife Shirley of 64 years on Sunday September 20th.
He loved Idaho, spending time with his family, proudly serving his country, his Sunday morning breakfast outings, woodworking and spending time camping in the mountains as much as he could.
He first joined the Army National Guard in 1949 at the age of 16. In 1951 he changed over and enlisted with the United States Navy until he retired in 1976 as Senior Chief Petty Officer. When he first joined the Navy, he was on the Oriskany aircraft carrier in the Korean War. He flew on the P5M Martin Mariner during the Vietnam War and the P3 Orion and the P2V-7 Neptune as an anti submarine warfare operator.
He was the best father a daughter could ask for, and was willing to help out whenever he could. Him and Mom loved coming with me to my Maui Wowi events and just hanging out and watching people go by. Thank you for your companionship. Thank you for helping Mom raised us three kids and serving our country to protect our freedom.I love you Dad.
You will be missed by all that knew you.
