Ron served his country as a MP in the U.S. Army in New Mexico. Ron married Karen Irby on March 18, 1972 and together had three daughters. He served on the Baroda Village council for many years and was once the Village Chair. Ron retired from UPS after 29 years of service. He was a selfless person volunteering his time at the Baroda Church of God and at Passeros’ Pizzeria in St. Joseph. Ron will be remembered for both his outgoing personality and his sense of humor. He was a man of deep spiritual faith and love of all children. Most of all, Ron was a ‘family man’ who cherished time spent with his family – particularly his grandchildren – and his special dog, Bailey. Ron is survived by his wife of over 40 years, Karen; children, Melanie (Mario) Abbott of Baroda, Amy (Dane Judd) Foster of Kalamazoo, and Megan Marshall of Baroda; grandchildren, Courtney and Ellery Kruger and M.J. Abbott; and by his siblings, Myrtle (Allen) Thar, of Fountain, Michigan, Sally (William) Garberson of Stevensville, (twin brother) Don (Judy) Marshall of St. Joseph, Kathy (Charles) Campbell, Larry (Yogi) Marshall and Aline Norwood (James Dean) all of Benton Harbor. In addition to his parents, Ron was preceded in death by his sister, Janet Weschgel; and by his step-mother, Edna Current-Marshall.
