Ronald Lavern Wiegel, age 71, of El Dorado Springs, MO, passed away at his home on November 8, 2013. Ronald was born August 3, 1942, at Charter Oak, Iowa, to John M. and Lavera (Kortman) Wiegel.
In October of 1966 Ronald married Elsie Jane Radspinner. To this union three children were born. They were later divorced.
Ronald worked all his life around livestock. He worked many years at the Harwood Elevator, before becoming a farm hand for many people in the Walker, Harwood, and Schell City areas. At the time of Ronald’s retirement in 2005, after a stroke, he had been working for Jerry and Jenice Burch of Walker, MO.
Ronald “Ronnie” loved everyone. He always loved seeing children, especially at Halloween. He also loved flirting with all the ladies—he didn’t care about age, they were all special to him.
Preceding him in death were his mother Lavera (Kortman) Wiegel; father John M. Wiegel; and two sisters: Fayleen Sheppard and Joleen Carter.
Survivors include his three children: Carla Jones and partner Joe Felkner of Lamar, MO, Preston Wiegel and wife Laena of El Dorado Springs, MO, and Quentin Wiegel and wife Heather of Arkansas; three brothers: John Wiegel and wife Evelyn of El Dorado Springs, MO, Richard Wiegel of Gerald, MO, and Randy Wiegel of Harwood, MO; two sisters: Linda Carpenter and husband Bob of El Dorado Springs, MO, and Anita Amick and husband Ron of El Dorado Springs, MO; seven grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
He will be missed by everyone—he knew he was loved.
