Ronald Tebbs

Monday, June 26, 2017

June 19, 2017 a few days short of his 80th birthday. Ron is survived by Carol, his wife of 60 years of Disney, Oklahoma; sister Beverley Henderson of McCall, Idaho; daughter, Kim Godber of Wrightwood, California; and son, Ron Tebbs Jr. of Disney, Oklahoma and owner of Ron’s Heat and Air in Vinita. Six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren lovingly remember him as, “Grandpa Santa” for his warm wide smile, white beard and jolly disposition. Ron lived a full and active life, teaching Advanced Biology for 38 years until 1997 in the same classroom where his own father taught Chemistry before him and as President of the Whittier High School District Teachers’ Association. After retirement, Ron established himself as an A-flight golfer in the Men’s Golf Association at PGA West in La Quinta, California and served as Treasurer of the Homeowner’s Association there. Ron is remembered for his devotion to family, even when personally recruited twice by Michael Jackson to head a proposed Olympic track and field training camp for black athletes. He worried that the young star was a “flash in the pan” unable to reliably match his teaching salary. He never regretted turning down the offer, though his family was in disbelief.

Mourners pay respects to Tashii Brown, who died in police custody - Las Vegas Review-Journal

Saturday, June 10, 2017

NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union Las Vegas chapters have come together in a joint effort to call for reform of the department.An internet petition created by McCoy calls on Metro to join Henderson and North Las Vegas in banning the use of neck restraints by officers. As of Saturday, the petition had racked up 291 of the needed 500 signatures.The petition also demands complete transparency from the department during its investigation.“The one thing that brings about unrest is no information or a lack of information and lack of knowledge,” McCoy said. “We’re asking officials to help us understand this because if there are things about the investigation process that I don’t know, that means an average person wouldn’t know.”Days after Brown’s in-custody death, McMahill confirmed that the chokehold used by Lopera is not sanctioned or approved.“When you have adrenaline flowing like that, I don’t know how you ascertain the proper technique to perform the authorized form of the chokehold,” McCoy said Saturday evening. “At the end of the day, you’re still choking someone and you have the potential to kill.”Meanwhile, the Brown family has stayed out of the media spotlight since his death. Lagomarsino said that given the nationwide hypervigilance over tensions between black men and police, the family “is just trying to be very conscious about being portrayed as another stereotype.”McCoy said “time will tell” whether racial bias played a role in the incident.“We don’t know what his motive was or why he chose the actions he chose,” she said. “We are trying to allow justice to play out.”In addition to Farmer, Brown leaves behind his daughter, Tamara Farmer-Duarte; son, Elias Duarte; brothers Thomas Farmer and Jeffrey Brown Jr.; and sisters Taiye Farmer and Jamiya Brown.Contact Rio Lacanlale at rlacanlale@reviewjournal.com or at 702-383-0381.
