The Westmont Park District’s Director, Ron Gunter, retired on May 31 after 40 years of service to the agency. Ron began his career with the Park District on May 15, 1977, when he was hired as the Superintendent of Recreation. In August of 1980, Ron was promoted to the Director and has served in that role for the past 36 years.
Ron was honored by the Westmont Park District Board of Commissioners when they voted to rename the Administration Offices the Ronald J. Gunter Administrative Center. Ron’s commitment to the parks and recreation field, dedication to the Village of Westmont and its residents, leadership and loyalty to his staff will be greatly missed.
