Ron was a 1971 graduate of IVC High School. He later worked for Doering Truck Parts which became Midway Truck Parts which later became FleetPride. He worked at the same location for over 40 years. He was currently employed by Midwest Repair in Eureka, IL.
He was an honorable husband, father, and grandfather who loved his family unconditionally. He enjoyed sitting back and watching his children and grandchildren as they often entertained them through their stories and adventures. A quiet man he was, but often wore his heart on his sleeve. His love for his family and friends will always be remembered. Those who know Ron best know there is nothing he would not do for anyone.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society in Ron's name.
