Ronald Victorian, “Bubba and Later GPA”, Pinkowski, age 78 and formerly of Chicago IL, passed away peacefully March 8th, 2021. Born March 23, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois to Lambert and Martha Pinkowski, Ron was always a cowboy at heart. He was a graduate of Niles Township High School in 1959 and graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1963 where he received his Bachelor of Science in Engineering. He served his country in the United States Marine Corp and proudly displayed “Semper Fi” throughout his life. Ron lived and worked for the City of Chicago for many years but his heart was always happiest enjoying the outdoors. He retired to Gold Canyon, Arizona in 1997 and enjoyed many years of hunting, fishing, golf and the companionship of his beloved dogs Sundance, and later Cassidy, Tuna and Marshmallow…and relaxing outside with a good cigar.
He is survived by Dawn, his loving partner of 32 years. He is also survived by his daughter Diane (Rick) Coartney and granddaughters Lauren and Danielle (Nick). He is also survived by his stepson Jim Loftus and children Jim, Megan and Dylan and his stepdaughter Cindy Murray and children Michael and Mark.
A Celebration of Life will be held with friends and family at a later date.
