Ron Nix Stuntman Actor

Posted By on January 2, 2009

Ron Nix was an extraordinary stunt man. He has worked in numerous motion pictures as a stuntman/actor. He worked for me at Legend City and the Maricopa County Fair. He also did production in some of the motion pictures that I produced and directed.  To this day we are close friends.

  2. Ron,

    I’m reaching out to see if I can get in contact with Ron. I knew Ron really well in the 70’s at the time when he was doing stunts at Legend City in Tempe Arizona. I was just a kid at the time and ran a little shop call “The Sign Of The Times” (behind which, where the two Buffalo were kept) across the street from the The Lost Dutchmans Mine. Ron was like a mentor to me back then. In addition to my little store, I helped out at the local horse stable which was run by a guy named Cliff Greathouse that drove an old Baracuda at the time. I ended up buying a mare horse from Cliff (named Buck) which I rode around the park on a regular basis. My brother bought a black Shetland pony from Cliff as well (named Midnight) that we ended up selling to Ron years later. I have many memories of Ron, from the days when he did the train stunts at the ghost town/employees lounge, and especially the time when a flaming arrow caught his airbag on fire and he had to resort to cardboard boxes for his stunts until he could afford to buy a new airbag. Also, when he broke his leg on one of his train robbery stunts. I was also there when he tried carrying a heavy load that was way too heavy for the wooden bridge he was carrying his stuff over to headed to Island Lake when the wheel fell through the bridge. I also remember all of the stunt pictures that Ron had displayed on Island Lake of his days as a stunt man on Bonanza. As a kid I was totally intrigued. Most of all though, what really stands out is the day that I watched Ron doing one of his workouts on the Skyride, with the park open and people going by in total amazement. I was on the ground watching, also in total amazement, watching Ron way up there with just two ropes and no safety equipment. I know that Ron had a place up towards Lake Pleasant, by a dirt racetrack, but never hooked up and wish that I had. I don’t think that that it is still there and wish that I had stopped by. I hope this note finds you well in good health, Ron, and would love to see you just one more time if at all possible.
