Ronald F. Finch of Round Rock, Texas, passed away on Monday, November 25, 2019, after a short illness. He was born July 20, 1947 in Rockford, Illinois, the second son of Dean and Wilma Finch. Ron attended Illinois State University – taking a break in the middle of his education to serve in the Army during the Vietnam War – and then returned to receive his Bachelor of Science degree in both math and agriculture. After 38 years of service with the State of Illinois, City of Waco and the State of Texas, Ron retired in 2013. During his retirement he enjoyed visiting his daughters and grandchildren. He was an avid pro-football and baseball fan and also enjoyed watching college football and pro-golf. He loved traveling to Las Vegas for the lights and atmosphere and some occasional gambling, too.

Ron is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Barbara; daughters, Traci and Kelli; grandchildren, Benjamin and Trudy; nephew, Mark; and many cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dean and Wilma; brother, Robert and twin brother, Randall.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a yet to be determined future date. Memorial donations in Ron’s memory can be made to your favorite charity.

Ron was one in a million. He was so good to all of the Rice Family over the years, making countless trips to Illinois to visit with us all. We'll miss him dearly. Go in peace dear cousin.

Ron was a good man, right down to the marrow of his bones. Though my wife and I shall miss his friendship, help (with a cat), shooting up the woods, our loss and many others' pales in comparison with that of his wife and daughters.
Our deepest and most heartfelt condolences.
