My deepest condolences to the family and friends. I worked with Ron at Bellefaire. He was one of the nicest guys I’ve ever known.

Condolence from Tina P on August 3rd, 2020 11:21 am

Ron was full of life, and certainly did not let any grass grow under his feet. He had a beautiful smile and strength that was inspiring to many! Danny, thinking of you and sending warm hugs.

I put off writing this because I thought that merely making a trite comment would not serve Ron’s memory well. While I considered him a close friend I certainly didn’t know him as well as Danny, his family, and I’m sure many other friends, but I was privy to some things from yesteryear that added to my memories.

He had talents that I don’t believe many people ever knew or realized. Unlike many, he was able to create a life that accommodated him, unencumbered by the notions of others. He was earthy, not fancy and was able to enjoy the essence of those things that make life enjoyable.

Those all too infrequent Saturday mornings at Brecksville Doughnut that Kathleen and I shared with Ron, Danny, and so many “customers” always continued on into afternoons and allowed for an amazing respite from the doldrums of life. Danny’s acerbic comments mitigated with Ron’s response provided great insight into what only a genuine “friendship” can truly create. Watching customers, well actually friends come in helping themselves to coffee and doughnuts and then merely reporting their purchase was both refreshing and notable in today’s world. It was my observation the Ron didn’t just enjoy this, he relished the atmosphere in which he and Danny lived.

Ron always made the occasion better when Kathleen and would see him and Danny at a Sokol or a DTJ dinner with his warm smile and cordial conversation. He was indeed, the type of person you wanted to call your friend.

For the past year we cheered each other on as we each faced our own medical difficulties with an optimistic gusto which I both communicated to him while welcoming his encouragement in return. As an aside, I always ended my missive with a comment about how much I missed those Saturday morning doughnut catharsis meetings.

To Danny, his family, and all his friends I offer my deep condolences at this sad time while knowing his memory will always be with us. Sitting at the right hand of God is exactly where Ron deserves to be.

I’m so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. He was always the morning smile when I came into the office. He helped me through many trying times here at work. Personally, he was easy going and talked about you a lot. Many will miss him, and me too!

Condolence from Matt Schieferstein on August 14th, 2020 10:08 am

I am so sorry to hear about Ron passing. My condolences to you. He was a great guy and I enjoyed talking to him whenever I would visit my mom at Bellefaire.

Condolence from Joanne Lundeen Stenger on August 20th, 2020 1:47 am

Deepest sympathy to you, Dan, and the Mueller family, on Ron’s death. It’s strange, but I still think of him as Ronnie, as he was called when we were kids. I have many memories of enjoyable times at family celebrations, singing, dancing, including Swedish dances and the jitterbug, good food, etc. It is nice to have these memories of Ron and our families – those were great, fun-filled days.
Love, Ron’s cousin, Joanne Lundeen Stenger
