Ronald Edward Whitley

Ronald Edward Whitley, 70, a proud resident of Houston, TX and Brenham, TX passed away in Houston, TX on September 5, 2017. Mr. Whitley was born March 26, 1947 in Birmingham, AL. His absolute reality and dream was his wife Starr, his ranch, his beloved dog Chuck, Ranger Steel and his passion for traveling the world.

Ron Whitley gave the most powerful foundation for the many friends who surrounded him and whom he surrounded himself with. His profound wisdom elevated the lives and dreams of those closest to him.   His caring heart and generosity left a lasting impression upon everyone who came in contact with him.

Ron taught us all to love what we do in life, and to be able to say at the end of each day, “I did all I could with all that I have been given.”

Mr. Whitley was a proud supporter of Texas A&M Veterinarian School and was the CEO of Ranger Steel in Houston, TX.

Ron leaves behind his loving wife Starr Whitley; his Ranger Steel Family, The Whitley Ranch Family, their beloved dogs, and many close friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes memorials be made to the Whitley Memorial Fund in care of Washington Animal Clinic: 2100 Hwy 36 N Brenham, TX 77833.

There will be a private service at a later date.

  1. Ron, I’m so saddened to hear of your passing from this earth. Sadly and tragically, our lives went in different directions but not too many days have gone by that I haven’t though of you and remembered all the wonderful memories that are engraved in my heart of the two of us . I wish I could have told you what a beautiful soul you were and how I very much loved the sweet soul you were – funny with a little attitude, playful, full of energy, loving, kind and generous, hard working, dedicated and loyal; always going the extra mile to be loving and thoughtful. I always felt beautiful because of you and will forever be grateful that God put you in my life for the four years we shared. Our plans fell through for so many foolish reasons that didn’t even matter but we were both so obstinate at the time. I have all the pictures, letters and cards you sent me and will always keep them for the rest of my life. You will always have a place in my heart that only you fit in. Rest in God’s kingdom and be at peace at last. All the hurt you experienced on this earth is gone now and I pray that you are finally free. I will miss your presence on this earth and remember the great love we once shared. “Rabbit”
