Ron attended St. Agatha grade school and Saegertown schools. He worked in logging before entering the US Army during the Vietnam War serving from 1964-1966. After returning home he started working at Meadville Malleable and continued through company changes until he retired from Advanced Cast Products after 41 years of service.

Ron was very proud of his family, especially his sons. He enjoyed working and hunting with them and his grandsons at the family camp, “Lil Rough Cut” at Tionesta. Many memories were made there where mom held down the fort. His family will miss him dearly. God rest his soul.
The family would like to thank the staff and caregivers at the Marquette Hospice House for all their wonderful care.
