His current marriage to his wife of 49 years, Sharon; four children, son, Kevin Phillips of Kansas City, Steve (Molly) Phillips of Grimes, daughter Ann Waterman of Johnston, and daughter Sara McClintock of Grimes; and a bonus daughter, Karen (Wes) Renken of Johnston, sixteen grandchildren and three great grandchildren; brother Larry (Betty) Moyer of Thurman; and several nieces and nephews.

Ronald was born on May 27, 1936, in Nebraska City, NE and he spent his entire life in Percival until the last few years. He graduated from Percival High School and then joined the National Guard while farming.
He later headed up security at the American Meter Plant in Nebraska City, became a Special Deputy for Fremont County and then became a Realtor at Heartland Properties in Council Bluffs.
Everyone knew Ron and remembered him, even if you only met him once. He was always busy with his many projects, which took way too long to complete or never did complete them. He was full of advice and shared it frequently. The stories he could tell, were amazing. Most of them were true because he had done the things he was talking about. He loved his family and made sure they knew it.
Memorial donations will be directed to Sharon Moyer, 2804 SE Liberty Dr., Grimes, IA 50111 and then given to Eden Acres of Perry Lutheran Homes.
