Ron served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He began his working career as a machinist for the Marion Power Shovel Company where he was employed for 37 years before his retirement in 1992. He went on to work for the Marion City School System in the print shop for an additional 12 years. Throughout his life he proved again and again that there was nothing more valuable to him than his faith and being present and sharing the lives of his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. His joy, his laughter and the sparkle in his eyes will forever be remembered by his family and friends as he cheered from the sidelines and watched them with such deep love and pride in all of their accomplishments. His love for nature and enjoying the simple pleasures of birds, trees and flowers was so endearing and all that knew him will cherish all of the memories that he left us and the future influences that he will have on us.
