Ronald H. Agins (August 17, 2012)
Oct 26, 1932 - August 5, 2012
Ron was born to Harry and Yetta Agins in Corona, California. He joined the family made up of Leona, Sam, Bette, and Obby. Ron being the youngest was treasured by all his family. Friends that he made early in life have lasted to the end.
Ron attended Corona High School, was considered an exceptional athlete and graduated with honors. He went on to Chaffey College but did not go all the way through because he already knew what he needed to know.
His first job was as an usher at the old Corona theatre.
Ron loved custom cars and racing which propelled him and his brother Obby into the auto parts business and to the sales of new and used cars.
Ron loved good music and he had a wonderful deep voice. He studied voice at UCLA and sang in many productions in Los Angeles and the local area. He helped in the formation of the Performing Arts in Orange County.
He was an ardent fisherman and yachts man. He fished the ocean from Alaska to Mexico. He owned a houseboat at Dana Point for many years that was the fun place to be in the summer for family and friends.
Along with his brother, Obby, he founded Agins Development Corporation and actively developed property in California, Arizona, and Nevada. They developed auto dealerships, industrial and commercial buildings as well as mobile home parks. He was very involved in the formation of building, fabrication and sales of mobile homes.
He had a reputation for honesty to the industry that led to many partnerships that were formed by only a handshake (of course a contract followed the handshake).
His philanthropy was wide spread and he gave to many charities. He had an open and generous heart.
