Kosar.Ronald.Martin_Photo RESIZEDRonald Kosar’s life consisted of fighting fires, calf roping, horseback riding, being a licensed pilot, and serving his country.  He was known to work hard, play hard, and live life to the fullest.  After joining the National Guard and serving as a tank commander for two years, he worked for teh City of Riverside Fire Department for over 30 years.  During this time, he had moved up from the ranks of firefighter to engineer, and finally retired as fire captain.  Serving as a mentor to all those he worked with, Ron was able to manage a fire station and take charge of the everyday activities and training.  “Rick,” as he was called, will be missed by all who knew him – especially his horse “Axeman.”
