Ron enjoyed fishing, photography, gold panning, gem stone exploration, and his family and friends...

Ron inspired others with his belief that every dream can be realized. He owned his own electrical company, concrete company, built and sold homes, and bought Oney's Tree Farm. He ran circles around the ordinary man and his wife accused him of building business plans in his sleep.
Ron enjoyed fishing, photography, gold panning, gem stone exploration, and his family and friends will miss his devilish sense of humor and big smile.
Ron is survived by Dawn, his wife of 39 years; his son Scott (Christina) of Woodstock; his daughter Michelle (Christopher Klein) of Milwaukee, WI; 3 grandchildren; siblings David (Lisa) Peterson and Sandy (Larry) McGurk; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the Woodstock Hospice Center for their compassion and care.
