Neighborhood Bluewater Village

Ron Tinker is one of the pre-made deceased ancestral Sims who resided during his lifetime in Bluewater Village, the shopping district shipped with The Sims 2: Open for Business. He was the husband of Lauren Tinker, the father of Stephen Tinker, and the grandfather of Melody Tinker. Ron has personality points and interests, something not every ancestral Sim has. He is completely resurrectable, even though he doesn't have a grave. Ron has the Fortune aspiration, and the Aries zodiac sign.

As far as personality, he is very outgoing, quite active, and somewhat neat. But Ron is quite serious and rather grouchy. This may explain why his granddaughter Melody is not very playful. Ron knew his daughter in-law Wanda Tinker's parents, and has memories of them dying. According to his SimDNA in SimPE, his hair was brown before it turned grey. According to Ron's age data in SimPE, he had 15 days left in the elder life stage when he died. His facial structure is almost, if not exactly identical to the 1st Maxis face template in Create a Sim.
