Ronald Majorell

obit Ronald MajorellIn loving memory of Ronald Majorell who passed away peacefully on January 12, 2024. He courageously fought Parkinson’s disease for the past several years. Ron lived in the retirement community of The Gables in Rutland.

He was born March 4, 1937. He was predeceased in death by his parents Genevieve Grammig and James Majorell, grandson, Arne Majorell Jr. and his brother-in-law, Arne Norbom.

He is survived by Randi Majorell his wife for over 53 years. He was her partner in love and life. His son Arne Majorell and his wife Anna Majorell and five loving grandchildren ages 22 to 12, Sadira, Tor, Leah, Selah and Zeke. He wanted their lives filled with adventure and achievements and they did not disappoint.

He attended high school in Caldwell, New Jersey, and Monmouth College before serving in the Army for three years at Fort Bliss, Texas.

Ron and his family moved to Warren, Vermont, 53 years ago so they could enjoy the outdoors and benefit from its wonderful outdoor environment. 

While living in Warren he established the Warren Elementary School ski program at Sugarbush. Originally, he used his truck to take the kids and skis to the mountain. The program grew and the school bus soon took over transportation and the program prospered.

True to his love of the outdoors, Ron started and ran the first landscaping business and nursery, Sugarbush Gardens, in the Mad River Valley for over three decades.

Ron loved exploring the Green Mountains, its lakes and rivers, camping, hiking, hunting, and fishing. He was an avid fly fisherman fishing waters all over New England, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Labrador and more. He was an officer in the Atlantic Salmon Foundation. He loved hunting with his German shorthaired pointers and lab. He was an avid downhill skier, cross-country skier, and snowshoer.

Ron will be dearly missed by his friends and family. He had a big warm smile, especially when one of his grandchildren had a fish on the end of the line!   

A private family ceremony is planned to remember Ron sometime this spring. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to support the research of Parkinson’s Disease at P.O. Box 5014, Hagerstown, MD 21741.
