Ron worked for Dacotah Foundation as Properties Director until his retirement. He was involved in many church activities and Kiwanis. Ron also loved spending time with his two grandsons. They were very special to him.
Ron had a passion for golf. He spent countless hours at Riverwood Golf Course chasing a little white ball. A chase fully supported, but not quite understood, by his wife. Ron spent most mornings at Landers, having coffee with the guys. He also mowed many an acre of grass at the farm. He was known for his quick wit, his baby blue eyes, and his kind, caring, and compassionate spirit.
