More fun: let's build one.
I'd say just use a fighter, but you might be wanting to include the ranger's skill set. And I bet you can't do without his medium-heavy armor penalties, too. So perhaps work toward Fighter from Ranger.
Ranger stuff to keep: skills, special abilities (like favored enemy).
Stuff to ditch: spells, light armor limitation?
How non-magical do you want? Animal Companion is actually a Magical Beast, so you might like to revert to 3.0's animal friendship style.
