It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing of Ron Ayres, founder of Ayres Adventures. He passed away peacefully at his beach house in Galveston, Texas on August 26, 2015. Ron had been diagnosed with cancer early last year. He leaves behind his wife Barbara, mother Marian, sister Carolyn, and three sons Brad, Chris and David.
Ron was a very special man who touched the lives of many people. He will be remembered for his kindness and generosity to all, easy humble manner, remarkable positive attitude, unsurpassed personal integrity, and most commonly uttered phrase, "Life is great!"
For me personally, Ron was like a second father. I have had the privilege of knowing and working with him at Ayres Adventures for eleven years. Over the years, I enjoyed every social and professional moment we had together. Never a word of complaint or negativity - only endless optimism! He was the best life mentor I could have asked for.
It is my intention to carry on Ron's legacy and ensure that Ayres Adventures continues to be the world's leading premium motorcycle touring company, along with contributions from the handpicked team of whom Ron was extremely proud.
Our sincerest condolences to Ron's family and many friends. Plans for a memorial service will be announced at a later date.
President and CEO
