Ronald Joe Bain


Ronald Joe Bain, 77, passed away on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023. He was born in Spokane, Washington on November 23,1945 to Ronald S. Bain and Joe Nell Wright Bain. He is survived by his loving wife, Debbie, 2 daughters, Stacie McLeod (Matt), and Chanda Chambers (Shawn), 2 brothers, Danny & Gary, along with several nieces.


Being baptized at the age of 10 as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Ron’s entire life course was one of sacred service to our God, Jehovah. As a child, he moved around with his family to serve where the need was great.


In 1964, Ron decided to move from Spokane to Brooklyn, New York to volunteer to work at the World Headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses for 4 years. After, he returned home and met his soon-to-be wife, Debra Franks. It was during this time that he sided with his faith and became a conscientious objector during the draft. Two days after Ron’s sentence was given as completing community service, Ron and Debbie were married on Sunday, February 13, 1972. In April 1973, they had their first daughter, Stacie. Then in October 1974, they had their second daughter, Chanda.


               Ron was known for being a very hard worker. He worked as Construction Foreman for Weber County for 35 years. After he retired from Weber County, he worked for the Ogden City School District for about 5 years as a Project Manager in remodeling Ogden High School.


               One of Ron’s greatest joys was spending time with his family, especially outdoors. He enjoyed camping, hiking, building the perfect campfire, and roasting the perfect marshmallow over those fires. Every year Ron and Debbie would take their daughters to different National & State Parks to go camping & exploring. It was very important to both that they spent as much time together as a family, keeping each other close, not just as family, but also as friends, as their daughters grew up. They raised their daughters to appreciate the creation around them & taught them about the creator, Jehovah, and the hope that awaited them in the future.


               For approximately 40 years, Ron used his many talents in volunteering his time with the “Regional Building Committee” for Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the “Local Design Committee” in the design and construction of Kingdom Halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Working with that committee, he met so many wonderful people across the country, many of whom stayed in touch with him. He truly loved working together with his team, and really appreciated all their hard work, love, and dedication. Ron has also served as an elder in the Ogden Central Congregation for about 48 years.


               Both Ron and his family’s hope is based on the promises held out in the Bible. Specifically, the promise at Revelation 21:3,4: “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind. And he will reside with them, and they will be his people.  And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”.


               The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses held a special place in Ron’s heart. Therefore, in person services will be limited to family, close friends, and members of the Ogden Central Congregation.
