Ronald Reg Minghelli, a long time resident of Palmdale, CA passed away on Feb. 18, 2022  in Henderson, NV.  He was born May 21, 1953 to Edward and Lillian Minghelli in Covina, CA.

Ron's 68 years of life was filled with several careers. First in construction and pool building (Minghelli Pools of Palmdale, CA).  He retired from Antelope Valley Hospital after 20 years as a respiratory therapist. He further extended his working experiences as a building inspector until retirement.

Ron was known as an avid collector of things.  He enjoyed hunting for treasures from antique stores, flea markets, garage sales, and roadside stops.  He loved nature and animals demonstrated by his dedication to his garden and pets.  Ron could never resist the opportunity to rescue an injured or lost animal or feed the birds.  He made his daily walks with his dogs a priority.
