Ronald Steven Kellogg

Ronald Steven Kellogg passed away on July 19, 2020 from complications of a stroke. 

Ron was born in Maryland on August 25, 1941. At the age of 3, he lost his mom and at 16 moved to Utah to live with his sister Alice and her husband Steve. Ron graduated from Weber High where he earned many records in swimming. He then served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Northern California Mission. After his mission, he went on to attend and graduate from Weber State University.

Ron married Ilene R. Kellogg in 1964 and they had 3 children, Kris, Matt, and Angie. They later divorced but remained lifelong friends. 

In 1983 Ron met the love of his life, Elizabeth “Beth”. Ron and Beth married in 1984, and with that marriage came three boys, Will, Drew and Adam who all remained his lifelong friends. His life was the best when spending time with his family. It was the most important thing. The Gospel of Jesus Christ and learning and studying about it was also a top priority in his life and he was always happy to share his knowledge. Ron was generous to a fault.

Over the last 52 years Ron's passion has been selling insurance in the senior market. Over those years he started his own agency, Kellogg Insurance Marketing. With that company, he has hired and trained thousands of agents all over the country. The consummate storyteller, Ron could tell you about every policy holder like it was the first time you have heard it, even if it was the 5th, 6th, or 7th time. It was not just work, his managers, staff and agents were his “Kellogg Family”. Ron and Beth became acquainted with TGen several years ago through Guarantee Trust Life Insurance Company. They and their team of agents deeply believe in the ongoing research that TGen is doing to find better treatments to cancer and other medical issues people face.

We will miss him beyond words. We could only hope for just one more minute, but the overwhelming joy we imagine he is having in the reunion with his son Matt is giving us peace.
