On March 14, 2008 he married his love, Debbie (Klapatch) Dides in a fairy tale wedding in Disney World, who survives along with two children: Adelyn and Jonathan Dides, at home; three sisters: Cynthia L.

Ron began his career in 1993 with Walmart Distribution and Transportation. He has held many positions in distribution centers located in Woodland, PA, Hope Mills, NC, Tobyhanna, PA and most recently Bedford, PA as an Operations Manager.

Ron was a devoted husband and father. He adored his family and was happiest making memories and taking care of them. Ron loved the great outdoors and truly enjoyed sharing his love of baseball, football, hunting, and fishing with his children. Ron was a great friend, always willing to help wherever he could, full of honesty, integrity, patience and thoughtfulness. He will be remembered for his sparkling blue eyes and his smile that could light up a room. All those who loved Ron were truly blessed to have him in their lives.
