Ronald T. Mackey, 74, of Longmont passed away October 25, 2019 at Willowbrook Place in Littleton, CO.

He was born March 20, 1945 in Henderson, Kentucky to John S. and Bernice J. (Walker) Mackey. Ron graduated from Henderson County High School and earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in geology from the University of Kentucky in Lexington.

On June 3, 1966 he married Linda Davis in Evansville, Indiana. They moved to Colorado in 1974 and to Longmont in 1982.

Ron had a long career as a geologist in the oil and gas industry, operating Mackey Oil Company for many years, and over the last 30 years Venture Resources. He was a ‘good’ oil finder.

He was a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association and Rocky Mountain Christian Church in Longmont.

Ron decided to be a pilot as a young man watching planes fly over the family farm in Kentucky. He was an instrument rated pilot flying a twin Cessna aircraft. He also enjoyed scuba diving, golfing and hunting.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Allen Ray Mackey and sister Martha Jean Hope.

Ron is survived by his wife Linda; three children Greg Mackey and wife Dr. Deborah Mackey, Brian Mackey and wife Allison and April Mackey Iliff and husband Jeff; and seven grandchildren Jessica, Reanna, Garrett, Cooper, Davis, Joshua and Emma.

Linda and family, We send our sincerest sympathy knowing it has been a hard road for you all. We only met Ron once at Aunt Venia Davis’ house, but heard MANY wonderful full things about Ron and the beautiful life you had together! Aunt Venia very fond of him and proud of the family and life you built in Colorado.
We think of you often, Linda, as we drive past your childhood home on Madison Street. It was always good visiting when you came to see your parents and brother, Mike, and years ago at Janie and Harold’s house. She is now 93 and living in Sebree with the youngest daughter,
Please know we are thinking of you all and praying for God’s peace during this difficult time.
God bless,
Danny and Cyndy Garrett

Linda, I am so sorry to learn of Ronnie’s passing; he was one of my Best friends in high school & I always looked forward to seeing him at our class reunions. I was told at our latest class reunion about a month ago that he had Alzheimer’s & I know that is a terrible disease. Ronnie & I were in Agriculture classes together & he would sometimes come to after school freshman basketball games (when I played) & would yell encouragement from the stands (which I very much appreciated). Again, my condolences to you & your family & friends. You are in my prayers. John Eblen
