Ronald Jackson Chancellor, 45, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Dec. 18, at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital following a chronic illness. He met his end surrounded by those he loved and were blessed to have shared in his life.
Ron was born June 15, 1963 and then raised in Manteca. He lived in Fort Bragg for the past two years. During his time in Manteca, Ron was very active in both school band and Boy Scouts of America.  Later, he obtained the title of Eagle Scout and fondly remember his days with his troop mates and leaders. He graduated from Manteca High School.
As an adult, Ron worked primarily as a chef at various local eating establishments. He also obtained a Bachelor’s Of Arts Degree from California State University Stanislaus in Social Studies; then went on to receive his teaching credential and enjoyed a time of substitute teaching.
In recent years, facing health issues, Ron found his true purpose and joy in life — that of sharing in the raising of his nephew, Tristen Reilly Black, and his two nieces, Maddelyn Rose Black and Kennedy Lyn Black. These three precious children were the joy of Ron’s existence and gave him the will to fight his illness. He was “The World’s Greatest Uncle.”
Ron left his legacy through the lives of these children as well as his “baby” sister, Lynette. He found his solace in ocean views, taking the children to the park, reading a million bedtime stories, and watching the world come alive in eyes of these three beloved kids. They gave his life purpose and were his whole world.
Ron is also survived by the members of his immediate family: his mother, Marion Loretta Veregge of Merced, his father, Carl Mason Chancellor of Manteca, his brother Jeffrey Lee Chancellor of Riverbank, and his sisters Beverly Diane Lowry of Manteca and Lynette Marie Black of Fort Bragg.
All who knew him are encouraged to join us to say goodbye to this beloved man. 
Ron’s Memorial service will be held at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 910 E. North Street in Manteca on Monday, Dec. 29. at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a memorial fund set up at Evergreen United Methodist Church, 300 N. Corry Street in Fort Bragg, CA 95437.
