I was Ron’s Brewers Season ticket rep for 7 years. I am so saddened to hear about his passing. He was always pleasant and gracious. I looked forward to when we met for lunch to discuss brewers baseball and life. Rest in peace Ron -Kristen


Dear Cathy, Edna and Family,

With sadness I send my sympathy to you and your entire family. There are so many memories of Ron all the way back to grade school and high school. My most recent memory was sitting behind him at St Jacobi during a recent confirmation service where we were reminded that ours had been 50 years prior! Wow…how time flies.

I am sorry I missed the service. I am traveling to Seattle to visit my daughter and meet our newest grandson, born just yesterday, November 12. Ah…the circle of life.

We are all so blessed to have the comfort of Jesus and Heaven at a time like this. My very best to you as you celebrate his life and mourn his passing. My thoughts and prayers to you.

God Bless, Jinny (Pede) Wilson

I will never forget my grade school years having Mr. Jeske as my coach at St. Jacobi, they are some of the best memories I will ever have. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ross, the Jeske family and all who had the pleasure of knowing Ron.

I am so sorry to hear about Ron. He was a good friend for so many years through the paper business when he was at Sycamore Press, to being a fellow basketball official. I will miss him as will many others. I’m sorry I can’t attend the services tomorrow as I am currently in Florida. My prayers are with you and the family.

God’s Blessings,

Doug and Sharon Pinzer.

I had the great pleasure of working with Ron for so many years when I was with the Brewers. No job was ever too big or small. I’ll always remember his professionalism when we would meet to discuss my print needs. I extend my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ron. His warm smile will be missed.
