Ronald Lloyd Stokes
September 25, 1950 – July 4, 2019
Ronald L. Stokes, 68 of Hatfield, IN, passed away July 4th, 2019.
Ron was a proud Vietnam Army Veteran, an amazing, loving father, a published poet, welder & builder. He greatly enjoyed the outdoors, boating, his dogs & birds. Ron had a big personality with a sense of humor to match. He'd always say his biggest accomplishment was his daughter whom he cherished more than anything. Those that knew him, knew his biggest accomplishment was Ron's whole life. He achieved what most only dream of, a truly happy life filled with love & laughs.
Ron is survived by his daughter Emily Stokes, brothers Ray (Julie) Stokes, Barney Stokes, Ed (Sherri) Stokes & Roy Lee Stokes. Along with a wonderful extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents Roy & Edith (Barney) Stokes & sister Linda (Stokes) Land.
A visitation will be held on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, from 3-6 pm at Alexander West Chapel. The Vanderburgh County Retired Veteran Memorial Club will hold military rites at 3:00 pm on Wednesday.

One Christmas when Emily was 4 or 5, we went overboard like we always did. You were terrified of her finding you putting together all the toys. So you wore a Santa hat and red sweatshirt in case she caught us. You'd be Santa and I was just helping Santa out. The thoughtfulness you always showed for her, you were a great father Ron.

Ron was a customer who frequented the gas station I work at. He always had a smile on his face. He was friendly and funny. I know he hasn't been gone long but I miss him already! Rest in peace Ron. If you see my Mom give her a big hug for me.
