Dr. Ron Deigh, now a retired community college professor of biology, previously served as a lieutenant colonel in the United States Army Veterinary Corps. Dr. Deigh is married to the former Ylda Luna, a successful professional interpreter in her own right. He has two lovely daughters and two wonderful sons-in-law, both of whom are the proud parents of a son and daughter, Dr. Deigh’s beautiful grandchildren. Following his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of California, he earned a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Ohio State University, and thereafter a Masters degree in public health from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. Additionally, he was a distinguished and outstanding District Governor of a prominent international service organization. All of this success came, despite deep-seated feelings of rejection and exceedingly low self-esteem, after he, along with his four siblings, were abandoned by his parents. He spent his formative years in an orphanage. Luckily, a loving family rescued him, took him home, and eventually adopted him, thereby helping to put him on the road to success. Dr. Deigh and Ylda now reside in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley of California.
