Ronald Titus, a beloved Hilton Head Island resident, was struck and killed by a car on Dec. 29 while walking across U.S. 278 near Jarvis Creek Park. He and his wife, Donna, had just celebrated their 63rd anniversary the night before. The 22-year-old driver of the car was not charged and witnesses said there was no way she could have avoided the accident.
Titus, 84, held leadership positions at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Lowcountry and was an avid photographer, a lover of good jokes and a retired executive with the Boy Scouts of America. He is survived by his wife, daughters Ellen Titus, Ann Harrison and Kate Titus, son John Titus of Hilton Head Island and six grandchildren.
