Ron Meng 1954-2013

Ron Meng, founder and owner of Islands Marine Center, Lopez Island Washington passed away peacefully August 22, 2013 after a three year battle with cancer. Truly a self-made man, Ron started IMC some 40 years ago literally from the trunk of his car servicing what was then a sizable fishing fleet on Lopez. Gradually, he and his wife Jennifer purchased waterfront property, developed a full service marina and shifted their emphasis to recreational boaters as the commercial fishing industry waned. Ron was a skilled mechanic and an avid fisherman, two traits that he blended successfully to design and bring to market his own brand of northwest-style boat: the Ocean Sport Roamer. Coming up on hull #100, this unique brand was a source of great pride for Ron as he actively engaged his favorite pastime – fishing trips to Barkley Sound.

Ron is survived by his wife Jennifer, daughter Tina and a large extended family including his mother and father Florence & Godan. Both his businesses, Islands Marine Center and Ocean Sport Boats, will continue into the future, each guided by their respective management teams and the vision for serving the NW boater that is Ron Meng’s legacy. He was 59.

Celebration of Life Party will be Sunday, September 29th from 2-5pm at Woodmen Hall on Lopez Island.
