Obituary for Ronald Clyde 'Ron' Waters

Ron Waters most recently of Lynchburg, TN passed away unexpectedly on March 17, 2020 at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville. He was 70 years old and had been suffering from lengthy health problems prior to hospitalization. His wife and son were by his side. Ron was cremated and a Memorial Service for him will be held at a later date in Seagrove Beach, FL.

Ron graduated from Shelbyville Central High School in 1967, served on active duty with the U. S. Air Force from 1967 to 1971, and served with 10th Combat Weather Squadron in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War from 1970 to 1971. He was twice awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal during his military service. He attended Middle Tennessee State University from 1971 until his graduation in 1974.

After college, Ron enjoyed a career of almost 30 years as a Federal Investigator and in a number of security and management positions with the U.S. Government. He received a number of awards during his investigative career for outstanding work in uncovering cases involving espionage, drug trafficking and other major crimes.

Ron retired from Federal Service in 2004 as a Special Agent in the Investigative & Prosecution Division of the U. S. Office of Special Counsel, Washington, DC and Dallas, TX. In retirement, Ron stayed busy involved in managing retail and rental property operations near his home in Florida.

Ron married the love of his life, Exa Marie Haynes Waters, on May 27, 1968. He is survived by Marie and their son, Christopher. They spent many years of their lives together, enjoying the beach near their home in Seagrove Beach, FL. Ron was the son of the late Robert Clyde Waters and the late Rosie Waters Landers.
