Ron held a special place in my heart this last year, and still does. I enjoyed just visiting with him about the day to day things as well as hearing stories from his days of growing up. He shared stories of hunting with a good friend of his who happened to be a doctor, which led to many discussions on healthcare then vs now. I always looked forward to our visits. I hadn’t seen Ron for a couple of months and had planned to visit him the Saturday after he passed on Friday. We didn’t get our visit, but I knew Ron had a strong faith and was ready whenever our Lord called him home. No. more struggles my friend. Prayers for Marcia and Danielle.

Ron helped me for many years with the kids straw scramble at the Iowa Trappers conventions. When it was over he used his metal detector and helped the kids find a few more coins, always making sure those coins were put in the jar for the next year. He also helped judging a scavenger hunt. But far more than that, he was my good friend. We will be at the Fur Taker Conv. and wont be at the funeral. He will be missed.... Mike and Linda Long.

So very sorry to read about the loss of your Dad. My wife and I got to know Ron and his wife while we were working at Waterloo Greyhound Park. He was always so positive about everything we visited about! We have visited by e-mail several times a year for the past years. A fine gentleman and who would do anything to help a person in need. We will truly miss your loved one!

Marcia Jo & Danielle,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I can remember sitting around your supper table as kids eating turtle for the first time! It was so good, too. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
