Ron worked for the F.W. Woolworth Co. for 30 years and then for the Target Co. until retirement. Ron loved to travel and visit family and friends all over the United States. He visited as many National Parks as he could and went to such places as Hawaii, Alaska and Japan. Ron loved sports, music, life, and telling a good story. He played baseball and basketball well into his 50’s and loved to watch his grandchildren and great-grandchildren play. He had a love for music and loved to be at “grandpa’s lake” whenever possible (Cedar Lake). Ron’s greatest joy was family. He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife and is survived by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews with a total family extending into the 100’s.
