I worked with Ron a long long time ago. He was a great businessman and example for many young people starting out in the electronics field. Our time together at Semiconductor Specialis was transformative for me. My thoughts are with his family.

Mr. Krenek was a great neighbor. He was kind and always friendly. My one memory is how my older brother Kenny, along with Kent , and Louie ( maybe Ernie) would play cards in the Krenek’s garage. The boys invited Karrie, Jeanne, and me to play , also!
I would like to extend my sympathies both Kent and Karrie and their families. I am sure your dad will be missed.
My brother Jim attends Faith Lutheran and my husband, Jim is the new organist. The pastor prayed for your families this morning.

So very sorry to hear of the passing of Ron Krenek . I lived 2 doors down from him and Bette in Niles, as a youngster . He was a fine man and great husband to Bette, and father to Kent and to Karrie. He and Bette were always very kind and supportive of me and I really appreciated that. I miss them both to this day. Condolences to Kent, Karrie and to their grandchildren. ❤️🙏
