RM1 Ronald "Ron" Keith Pool, USN (Ret.), 78, of Goose Creek, South Carolina, born in Lubbock, TX, was a man who believed in doing what's right; always told his Sons "You don't lie, you don't cheat, and you don't steal." A strong willed and dynamic person, he fought a long fight with numerous ailments in later years, bouncing back many times to finally succumb as a result of the failure of his body to respond on July 29th, at 6:15 p.m.

Present at his bedside were his wife of 52 years, Faye Pool (nee Phillips); sons, Michael Keith Pool and Kevin Carlisle Pool, and his wife Susan; and their sons Brad-Lee and Keaton; his granddaughters, Katelyn Pool and Carlianne Crooms, with Ron's great-grandson Elton Jackson Jennings also there via phone.

Ron was a steadfast husband, a devoted member of the Elk's Lodge 242 in Charleston, SC, a proud member of the United States Navy who served on the USS Gilmore and the Submarine USS Albacore as a Radioman First Class, and Retired Civil Service as Security Director for the Charleston Naval Shipyard. After retirement, Ron worked as a Realtor with his wife at Carolina One and Metro North (formerly Prudential Carolina).

The family will be holding a Celebration of Life on Thursday, August 3, 2017 in J. Henry Stuhr, Inc., Northwoods Chapel, 2180 Greenridge Road at 12:00 p.m. The family will receive friends from 11:00 until the time of service.

Memorials may be made to St. James United Methodist Church, 512 St. James Avenue, Goose Creek, SC, 29445.
