He is missed." On dialysis days, Ron Salo never complained about the early morning boat trip to the mainland for treatment, always looking for- ward to the return trip that after- noon to his special Island home. He was born in Whitinsville, Mass., to Oscar and Winnie Salo and lived in East Douglas, Mass,, until leaving home for the Navy in 1959. Salo was stationed on a destroyer, the U.S.S. Ingersoll, where he was a radar man. It was during his time in the Navy that Salo developed his lifetime love of the ocean and world travel. After being discharged in May 1963, Salo began his 33- year career with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, working out of the Norwalk sta- tion after graduation from the Academy. His law enforcement career would touch on some of the most infamous criminal cases in California history. He went to the Special Enforcement Bureau in 1968 and during this assignment saw -much of the turbulence of the times, beginning with the assas- sination of Bobby Kennedy atthe Ambassador Hotel where Salo..was assigned for the evening. Salo was also part of the team that captured Tex Watson and other members of Charlie Manson's "Family." It was during these years on Labor Day weekend 1968, that Salo met his future wile Linda, who was sitting on the wall on Crescent Avenue in front of Lloyds. A chance meeting that would lead to their marriage at Buena Vista Point in Avalon on Sept. 25, 1971 and a lifelong attachment to their beautiful Island home. Later career moves took Salo to special investigations, organized crime and to one of his favorite assignments--Homicide, mov- ing there after completion of his assignmen.ts at the Los Angeles Olympics of 1984. Homicide was a challenge and when he and his partners solved a case it brought great satisfaction to know that he had done his best to speak for the victims and their families. After seven years as a homicide detective, Salo and Linda decided it was time to move full time to Avalom He transferred to the Avalon Station in 1992 as a sergeant, nor- mally working the early morning shift. He had a great team of deputies over the years and was a mentor as well as a good friend to a great number of them. Salo was known as "Sarge" to many in the community. Salo was active in the com- munity before and after his retire- ment, serving on the boards of the Catalina Island Medical Center, the Catalina Island Museum and the Catalina Island Men's Golf Club. Golf became one of his pas- dren's playground, adult game area, Spanish patio, picnic area, bbq grills and tables, and re, ntal cars available. Jade Pagoda, 708 Crescent. Junior Bowling Congress.

Salo and Linda loved to trav- el. They visited approximately 60 countries. Italy, especially Tuscany and Venice, was a favor- ite. Meeting people and making new friends were often a big part of the journey and they always found it interesting to see what the world is like away from home.
