Ronald D. Kern

Ronald D. Kern, 75, of Fostoria, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2019, at his home after an extended illness.

He was born Oct. 6, 1944, in Findlay, to the late Richard and Bonnie (Wright) Kern.

Ron is survived by his loving wife, Cindy (Lemaster) Kern; three children, Rodney (Kristi) Kern of Bryan, Roger Kern of Bowling Green and Amy Brown of Findlay; three stepchildren, Jamie (Marie) Saldusky, Jason Saldusky and Jeromy (Rachel) Kreais, all of Fostoria; five grandchildren; and a sister, Kay (John) Sidaway of Macomb.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Gary Kern.

Ron grew up in Wood County and farmed with his father for many years. He attended Jackson Township School and graduated in 1962 from McComb High School. He retired as a tool and die maker at Honeywell Company, Fostoria, with over 34 years of service. He enjoyed camping, touring around on his golf cart, fishing and watching Nascar. Ron also enjoyed his trips to Wyoming with his wife and pets.

It was Ron’s wish that there would be no funeral services.

The family would like to extend thanks to all the nurses, aids, pastors and friends for their compassionate care and support during Ron’s illness.

Memorials may be given in Ron’s name to ProMedica Hospice or to Fostoria Hospital Cancer Treatment Center. Harrold-Floriana Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
