Jamestown resident Ronald “Ron” George Hemsworth, fondly known as the “mayor of Mill Villa Estates,” passed away on Nov. 21, 2021, under hospice care at his daughter’s home in Portland, Oregon. He was 84.

Ron loved his community at Mill Villa and had many friends in the Jamestown and Sonora areas. He was passionate about sports, politics, recycling, travelling and spending time with family and friends. He could often be found at Doc’s Dawgs hanging out with his local buddies.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Suzanne Hemsworth, in 2015.

Private family services will be held in May 2022. In lieu of any flowers or gifts, please practice “Random Acts of Kindness” like our father did any chance he could.
