Resident of Fremont
After a courageous four month battle with pancreatic cancer, Ron passed away at sunrise on September 19, 2011, at his home in Fremont. He was surrounded by his loving family.
Ron is survived by his dear wife, Patricia Chell of Fremont and his loving family in England: his treasured son, Jamie Chell, his loving parents Denis and Florence Chell, his sister Sandra Carroll, her husband Ron Carroll, his niece Joanne Carroll and her children Jake and Meghan, and his nephew Christopher Carroll.
Ron was born in the small town of Uttoxeter, England. After arriving in California eleven years ago and marrying Patricia, Ron soon became a beloved soccer goal keeper coach. He coached at SACYSL, WHS, AHS, LYSL,CYSA, and the University of Notre Dame De Namur.
The "magic" of Ron will live on in the hearts of his family, friends, fellow coaches, and all the soccer players he had the privilege to coach throughout the years.
