Ronald Charles "Ron" Marlenee (born August 8, 1935) is a Republican politician who served in the United States House of Representatives from the U.S. state of Montana from January 3, 1977 to January 3, 1993.

He was born in Scobey, Montana. He was educated in the public schools of Daniels County, and attended Montana State University in Bozeman, the University of Montana in Missoula, and the Reisch School of Auctioneering in Mason City, Iowa.

Marlenee was an auctioneer, farmer and rancher. He was active in politics as a Republican, and held several party posts in Daniels County. From 1975 to 1976 he was the Second Congressional District's member of the Montana Republican Committee's executive board. In 1976 he was elected to the Ninety-fifth Congress. He was reelected seven times, and served from January 3, 1977 to January 3, 1993. Marlenee was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1992, losing to the Democratic nominee, Pat Williams. Williams had represented the 1st District in the House, and the two incumbents ran against each other after redistricting reduced Montana's House representation to one at-large district.
