Reception to follow in the parish hall.
Family and friends will be invited to share memories and stories at this time.
Ron passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of May 1st.
He was a child at heart, he loved to laugh, and give others a hard time. His family would tell people, who weren’t familiar with him, that being teased by him was a good sign that he liked you. Ron made friends wherever he went. When he would go for his daily walks, he would stop and visit with many neighbors along the way.
Ron volunteered with scouts, delivered the neighborhood newspaper, and was an usher at church. He coached all three of his children’s various sports.
Ron was an avid sports fan. He often wore Chicago Cubs, Denver Broncos, and Colorado Rockies gear. The day after a big game, he would spend time rehashing the outcome with Bob Inboden. He enjoyed participating in and watching various sporting events. He was a bowler, horseshoe thrower, and softball player. He loved the mountains and going for walks. He also enjoyed time on the golf course with his friend Bob Mauer.
From playing cards, to building decks, to camping and gardening, Ron and Daleen, (his wife of over 53 years), spent countless hours with their dear friends and neighbors Ron and Nancy Skoty.
Ron loved to attend his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events. Many of his children’s friends would call him “dad” and have him escort them on parent appreciation days.
In recent years, he became obsessed with the game of cornhole. At family gatherings, regardless of the weather, he would be the first to have bags in his hand ready to challenge anyone who would play. If there were no challengers, he could be found practicing his toss.
His memory will live on through his wife Daleen, his three children: Craig, Amy (Larry) and Brian (Patti), his seven grandchildren: Gavin, Nyla, Camden, Ethan, Emelia, Evan, and Vanessa, and his two sisters: Carol and Ardelle.
