To Ron's Wonderful Family, I worked with Ron at the Valley Power Plant for Wisconsin Electric. He was a Great Guy to work for, ( Ron was the Shift Supervisor ) and was very friendly and smart and would go out of his way to help you in any way he could. He always talked very proudly and lovingly of his Family. Ron is reunited back with his Heavenly Family. My deepest Condolences on your loss, Ron is a very Good Man, and will be missed.

Mrs. Hess, Patti, Jeannie and Nancy... My dad called to let me know the news; I'm so sorry to hear. It brought back so many memories from my childhood, when our families got together so often - such good times! I wish I could be at the gathering, but this darn virus will prevent me... Know that I am thinking of you all, are in my prayers, and wish you peace. Love, Kim Gleffe
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
