Ronald Ray Burkholder, age 72, went peacefully to be with his Lord and Savior Thursday, November 18, 2021, after a short battle with Covid-19. Ron had his bride by his side, holding his hand and telling him it was ok to be with Jesus and how he was loved by so many. If you knew Ron, he loved you unconditionally, with his whole heart and no one was a stranger. We all are better to have been blessed with his beautiful spirit; we love you, Ron, and you will forever be missed.

Ron was preceded in death by his mother, Jacqueline Burkholder. He will be remembered by his wife, Pam Burkholder; children Brent and Mary Burkholder, John Burkholder, Paul and Amy Nederveld; grandchildren Ashley and Gavin Anderson, Silver Burkholder, Cash Burkholder, Henry Nederveld, Sammy Nederveld, Edward Nederveld; great-grandchild, Zoe Anderson; father, David Burkholder; siblings Jim and Grace Burkholder; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

A Memorial Service and Celebration of Ron’s Life will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, November 27, 2021 at Cook Memorial Chapel (East building), 4235 Prairie St. SW, Grandville, MI 49418. Visitation with relatives and friends will take place one hour prior to service. When in attendance, we kindly ask that all guests wear a face covering and practice social distancing for their safety and well-being of the family.
