Ron was preceded in death by his father, George; mother, Elva; and by his sister, Jeanne.
Ron graduated from North Lima High School in 1969, where he played football and track. He was fondly known as “Bear” by his classmates and friends.
He also proudly served and was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army Reserves.
Ron was a former long-time steel worker, retiring from American Steel, and later, worked as a school custodian at McKinley Elementary.
He was an avid hunter and fisherman. Ron had a great smile and laugh, and combined with his outgoing personality, he could make a friend anywhere he went.

Following retirement, he would attend Lisbon and South Range football games with his buddies and was an active member of the Salem Community Center.
