Ron Mallon of Brooklyn Park passed away on Friday, April 5, 2024 from cardiac arrest. Ron was born on January 8, 1947 in Albert Lea, the son of Roy and Clara (Lyngaas) Mallon. He graduated from Albert Lea High School in 1965. He went to Technical School after that and started his career in drafting, which later turned into computer aided drafting. He married the love of his life, Sue Banashak, on November 22, 1969 in Waseca, MN. They enjoyed 53 wonderful years together before Sue passed away. He enjoyed spending time with his wife and family. He also loved working on cars, and he loved going to car shows in the summer. He was such a kind and unselfish man, with a witty sense of humor. He will be missed by so many.
