Ronald Yoxey, RPh Obituary

Ronald W. Yoxey, Rph, 93, passed away January 13, 2024. A lifetime Puebloan, he was born January 26, 1930, to Ludwig and Mary (Germ) Yoxey. Ronald is preceded in death by wife Maria (Garza) Yoxey; sons, Ludwig R Yoxey, and Terry Yoxey; brother, Richard Yoxey; sisters and brothers-in-law, Elsie (Morgan) Zupancic, Lorraine (Benny) Glach, Mary (Bobby) Pechek; Gerry (Robert) Blazich.

Ronald graduated from Central High School in 1947. Growing up in “Bojon Town” and owning the nickname “Rocky” he was proud of his Slovenian heritage and to be a lifelong member of Preseren Lodge.

After a childhood of playing baseball, he attended the University of Wyoming where he played Division I baseball as a pitcher (1951, 1952) and graduated from the School of Pharmacy in 1953. He served in the US Army. He founded Broadway Pharmacy, Inc. in 1957. Ronald practiced pharmacy for over 60 years. He was known for his care and helping generations of Pueblo families.

Ron had a love for life and his family. He will be sadly missed by all. His sense of humor and intelligence was matched by few, but appreciated by many.

He leaves to cherish his memory; his sons, Eric (April) Yoxey and Ron (Ashley) Yoxey Jr., sister, Evelyn (Yoxey) Matkins, sister-in-law Elia (Garza) Villarreaz; grandchildren, Gemi (David), Conor, Rowan, Angus, Quinn, Raegan, Nikolai, Mollin, Imogene, Austin, great grandchildren Grimm, Nix, Phobos, and Demos.

Till we meet again. Lahko noč.
