Ronald Head

July 20, 1942 — April 4, 2023

Ronald Lewis “Ron” Head, age 80, passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side on Tuesday, April 4, 2023.  Ron was born on July 20, 1942, to John Lyman Head and Verna Sanders Covington Head in Springfield, Tennessee.  Ron attended Issac Litton High School where he excelled in basketball and baseball.  He graduated with a degree in finance from Middle Tennessee State University and worked as Manager of Finance at Textron Aerostructures for 35 years before his much deserved retirement.

Ron is preceded in death by his parents John and Verna Head.  He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Diane, daughters; Renee (Ed) Morgan, Jennifer (Jeff) Lancaster and Shanna (Jeremy Weigel) Smith.  Ron was “Poppy” to seven precious grandchildren; Makenzie Morgan, Alec Lancaster, Zack Morgan, Addyson Morgan, Ella Lancaster, Jake Weigel and Brody Weigel.  In addition, he is survived by his brother, Gerald (Betsy) Head and many close friends.
