Ronald Grant Devey

Ronald G. Devey, (Ronnie aka “The Fever”) passed away peacefully February 8th, 2020 after a brief battle with lung cancer.

Ron defined the classic hardworking American husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and friend.

Born December 9th, 1953 to Edwin and Janice Devey in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from Cyprus High and married his high school sweetheart Rhonda (Wickham) Devey on November 18th, 1972.  A baker for most his life, he retired as an owner of DUB’s Barbecue in St. George, Utah working alongside his family.

It didn’t take much to make Ron happy. He enjoyed water skiing and boating, martial arts, action movies, good ice cream, and his Bulldog Izzy. He was our families Ninja!

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Rhonda, his sons Cameron (Chelsea) and Randy, his grandchildren Hailey, Kooper, Kash, Cruz and Avery, his brother Michael (Marsha) Devey, sister Robyn (Larry) Hancock, brother Steve Devey, his best pal and cousin Larry Devey and many beloved nieces and nephews.

The Devey family would like to acknowledge Dixie Regional Hospital for the care Ron received. Thank you also to Michael Devey for being by Ron’s side while he was in the hospital.

A Celebration of Ron’s Life will be held Sunday, March 8, 2020 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. at The Escape BRIO Clubhouse located at 230 W. BRIO Clubhouse Dr., Washington, UT 84780.

  1. Our condolences and prayers go out to the Devey family. Rhonda, Cameron and Randy, you will be in our thoughts always.

    Sharing family time and a close friendship during the mid 70s and early 80s, my thoughts reflect back on my Tae Kwon Do experiences with Ron. He was passionate about his martial arts training and the discipline it required. I took much from both his discipline and particularly his work ethic. He tirelessly threw himself into his working career as a baker, and I am sure this dedication had a large part to do with he and his family’s success with DUBs in St. George.

    I was fortunate to reconnect with Ron in the summer of 2019 and it was if our past friendship had never experienced a gap of many years. It was an honor and privilege to have shared experiences and made memories with Ron. I will forever cherish those times.

    I will continue to reflect fondly on the times spent with Ron. Rest In Piece my friend.

  2. Ron, we all will miss you, none more than your immediate family. You , and I, went through some traumatic events in our lives. We have scars to show for our circumstances. It’s a good thing that chicks dig scars! They show that we were traumatized and we did survive. You finally met each of our fates. Rest assured that you made a mark on this world. The size of that mark is irrelevant.
    While you were with us, you were loved, immensely. I hope you knew that, as it is blatantly clear postmortem.
    Rest easy as you now know what is awaiting us all.
