Ronald Gary Breslin, 72, passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 24, 2019 in Jackson, Michigan.

Born February 3, 1947 to James and Clara (Bateman) Breslin Sr., Ron was a Michigan Department of Corrections officer who retired as a Sergeant after many years of dedicated service. He loved Michigan, but was a “Winter Texan”, spending his winter months in Corpus Christi. When he wasn’t working, he loved to hunt, fish, and golf. He also enjoyed MSU, a good game of BINGO, a round of cards, and a cold Dilly-Dilly.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Nancy Thompson, and his beloved dog Scooter.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Carol (Craft); his daughter, Amy (Randy) Delaney; his grandchildren, Tyler (fiancée Danielle) and Travis (Libby McManus); his siblings, James (Becky) Breslin, Debra (Mike) Bloom, and Michael Breslin; and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
