Ron entered the Army in 1957 and served in Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri, then served six years in the Army Reserves. After his military service, Ron went into business for himself and opened Ron’s Custom Built Cabinets in Mount Pleasant. Ron created beautiful cabinets, furniture and countertops for clients’ homes and businesses in Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan.

Ron was a true outdoorsman who hunted and fished most of his life. He loved fishing on Lake Michigan and in Mexico. He and Juliet hiked in Arizona and traveled to Australia, New Zealand, French Polynesia, Europe, Mexico, and the US National Parks. Many fantastic and exciting Big Game hunts were had in Alaska, Canada, Mexico and the Western States. He also loved the Green Bay Packers, UW Badgers and the Brewers.

One of Ron’s most memorable accomplishments was being the Construction Captain for the Kids Connection Community-Built Playground in 2000 at Franksville Park.

Ron was a kind and gentle person, an expert craftsman, a caring husband, father/step-father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be deeply missed by many friends and relatives.
