Ron's favorite things to do were playing pool, riding his three wheeled bike and listening to Johnny Cash music. He recently moved from Fairway Group Home due to health issues. Ron adored all his former staff and housemates. He had a smile for everyone. Ron reached an age of 61 years and 8 months. He is survived by his sister Virginia Shatzer of Hampton, sister Kathryn Phillipp of Waukon, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Ron was preceded in death by his parents William and Nettie.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. The Sietsema Vogel Funeral Home of Hampton is in charge of arrangements.
I am a volunteer at the EPI CHOICE program and that is how I met Ron. He was a sweet, friendly guy. I give birthday cards with a dollar inside to the CHOICE people and he would always say "Mail" to me and I would say that I would mail his birthday card to him. He also liked to show me his belts and watches. I will always remember his friendliness and his smile. I will send a donation to EPI CHOICE in Ron's memory.
I worked with Ron at his home and at CHOICE. He once sang Happy Birthday to me and it really made me smile. He was a sweet guy and will be missed.
