Ronald attended school through the 8th grade at St. John’s Lutheran School, Palmer. On July 29, 1962, he was united in marriage to Trudy Alexander. Through this union Ronald and Trudy were blessed with 7 children, 20 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. Ronald will be remembered by his family and friends as a man who found joy out of the simple things in life. Through all his many jobs in construction, farm work, grain elevator, delivering “The Topeka Capital Journal” to surrounding towns, and running The Palmer Filling Station he always enjoyed making people around him laugh by telling one of his many jokes. It was also customary for Ronald to tell each grandchild upon the first time holding them that “They were just the right size to make good fish bait!” If Ronald wasn’t spending time with his wife, kids, or cattle you could find him at the ballfield. He loved watching everything from tee-ball to adult slow pitch, there was no ballgame he didn’t find joy in watching. He spent many of the nights at the ballfield alongside his brother Roland on their 4 wheelers. Even after his life changing stroke in March 2017, Ronald still kept his humor and was well known by the Linn Community Nursing Home staff for his nicknames and sense of humor.
