    Ron was my cousin, classmate, and we shared the same birthday. Growing up, my family would visit his family…we loved spending time outside on the farm, and climbing up to the swing high in the tree. There was always a kolache or 2 offered when we went in the house. I will miss you Ron. I extend my love and prayers to all his family. Cherish the memories of your kind and thoughtful husband, father, and brother.

    I am so sad to hear of the passing of Ron. It breaks my heart. I enjoyed caring for Ron at the Cancer center and getting to know both you. He was one of my favorite patients that I ever had the pleasure of knowing and taking care of. He will always carry a special place in my heart. And I will always remember his delicious cakes he made for us. Prayers to you and your family. -Alex

    Ron was like a father figure to me growing up and shaped the person I am today in more ways than I can recall. This man was one of the most selfless and caring people I have ever had the privilege of being around in my life. Whether Josh and I were riding on the 4 wheeler around the farm, hanging out at the lake house on the boat, or watching the Husker games in the basement of their home – I was always welcomed with open arms. Not everyone is fortunate enough to be graced with such a bright spirit such as Ron, but I was. I will miss you Ron, you changed my life for the better and I will forever be grateful.

    For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

    May these verses give us all comfort that our faith in Jesus Christ shall comfort and deliver us from this pain of loss we feel today as we remember Ron as a good husband, father, brother & friend.

    May we all pray to seek the vision of Ron beyond this mortal life that he is free from pain and cancer. Now, may we find comfort and blessings of our Lord Jesus that we will be reunited with Ron in the heaven.

    Prayers & Love – Kim Heier

May he rest secure in the bosom of the Lord, joined again with those in the family who have gone before. Peace to you Cindy, and Josh and Emma.

    Please accept my deepest condolences on the death of two family members. How shocking and sad. I attended Dist 23 one year ahead of Lee so knew him and Jeanette really well. Our farm was just west through the section. Our family thought very highly of yours. My sister Deanna, who passed away last June, and I attended the cousins picnic in Wahoo several years and were always so glad we had that opportunity to see everyone after all those years. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers in the months ahead.
