Many thanks to our friends and family including our church family at Staples Assembly of God for your support.
Ron’s family would also like to thank Coborn’s Cancer Center, St. Croix Hospice and Knute Nelson Homecare for their services.
Ron was a loving husband, father and grandpa who enjoyed time with his family in his last days. He had a strong faith and believed in eternal salvation and is now with the Father in Heaven. He would not want us to grieve for him but to celebrate his life and know that his love will always be with his family and friends.
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand, I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. Psalms 84:10
