Ronald Gregory Hough

 

Ronald Gregory Hough, 80, of Shreveport, LA, passed away from a sudden illness on June 27, 2022. He was preceded in death by his father, Doss Glenn Hough; his mother, Marjorie Arrington; and his grandson, Christopher Hayden Hough. He leaves behind the love of his life, his wife of 61 years, Julia “Kay” Hough; his three sons, Ronald Gregory Hough II (Karri), Christopher Todd Hough (Kayla), and Casey Benjamin Hough (Hannah); 13 grandchildren: Julie, Kylie, and Jacob Hough; Hannah Hirsch (Michael), Jessa, Caleb, Camille, and Joshua Hough; Carter, Jude, Weston, Eden, and Willow Hough; one great-grandson, Cas Hirsch; and one sister, Claudine Campbell (Paul).

Ronald was born on December 15, 1941, in Alexandria, LA before settling in Zwolle, LA with his parents. When he was not hunting and fishing, Ronald could be found on the basketball court. The former “Zwolle High School’s most handsome student” fell for Kay after meeting her at a portable skating rink in her hometown of Pleasant Hill, LA. Though Ronald was not much of a skater, he still managed to charm Kay enough to convince her to marry him on October 21, 1960, before moving to Baton Rouge, where he earned a degree in agriculture from Louisiana State University. After graduation, Ronald worked for Mobil Chemical and Swift & Co. for years before starting his own company in Northwest Louisiana.

For decades, Ronald provided chemicals for farmers all over the Ark-La-Tex region. As his family can attest, Ronald was one of the hardest-working men a person could ever meet. If Ronald was not working at the company, he was working around his house or in his garden. He balanced his work with his life which was filled with near-constant opportunities to enjoy his grandchildren. People that knew Ronald best describe him as a kind and generous man who loved his family dearly. He will be terribly missed, yet his family does not grieve as those without hope. Ronald possessed hope beyond this life because his hope was in Christ.

Honoring Ronald as pallbearers will be Caleb Hough, Jacob Hough, Joshua Hough, Carter Hough, Jude Hough, Michael Hirsch, Robert Hall and Zachary Powell. Serving as honorary pallbearers will be Michael Deutsch, David Willis and Paul Campbell.
