  1. Just now (Dec 1, 2020) reading of Ron’s passing. He was pastor at Lilly Lake (Illinois) when I was young. It was a great foundation. He preached the truth of the Bible, which was a huge factor in why I eventually accepted Christ. I look forward to reuniting with him in heaven, and once again praising our Lord together.

  2. Dear Sue,
    I was sure I posted a message here, but maybe not. I remember so much about Ron and you at Lily Lake. You both were such loving and giving pastors to the congregation. I have always missed you and the family. Ron was very much instrumental in my walk with Christ. I learned so much at Lily Lake and Wednesday night bible studies. He was a wonderful teacher, pastor, and mentor. Praying you are well and safe with your family perhaps back in Alaska? My love and thanks to you always, Nancy Westberg

  3. Ron was a spiritual leader showing the way to Christ. He taught me, and showed me, what a friend in Christ truly is, and that Jesus is our eternal friend! Ron reflected that in every way. Sorry to hear he passed from this earth. He is now safely home with Jesus, and I look forward to seeing him one day soon. Ron is now Paster Emeritus!
    God’s peace to all the family!
    David Faber

  4. Remember Ron very well, taught me how to love and trust our lord and savior Jesus Christ. Many fond memories.
