Place of Service
Ronald M. Studer
He was born June 6, 1956 in Galion to Ralph and Elizabeth (Kohls) Studer who both survive and reside in New Washington. Ron graduated from Buckeye Central High School and then attended The Ohio State University. He worked at Baja for a short time before becoming employed at General Motors in Ontario until their closure and he most recently was employed at General Electric.
Ron was a very gifted and hardworking man who loved his nieces and nephews. He created at least six patents that are registered with the US Patent Office, some include: a vertical hydraulic lift, air filtration system, a truck bed elevator and an emergency bio filter. He loved using fireworks “safely” with his family during their 4th of July get togethers and just enjoyed time with family. He enjoyed hunting and fishing; was a bee keeper and occasionally would make a little elderberry wine. Ron was also very artistic in the way of stained glass. He would buy the glass in German Village and then create treasures for family and friends. Another thing he enjoyed doing was working on the old Shrier Cheese building where he had lived. He was constantly trying to make things better through inventions.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by three brothers, Thomas (Michele), David and Tim (Susan) Studer; five sisters, Donna (Bill) Durtschi, Diana (Allen) Williams, Christina (David) Boehler, Jennifer (Mark) Dornbirer and Brenda Studer; 19 nieces and nephews and six great nieces and nephews.
He was formerly a member of UAW, the FOPA and donated blood through the local Red Cross.
Ron will be cremated and his family is going to hold a private memorial service. Contributions may be left to the Crawford County Chapter of the American Red Cross through the Wise Funeral Service.
