He was preceded in death by his parents Leo J. Liszewski and Esther Eleanor (nee Frost), and a son, Ronald B. Liszewski. He is survived by his wife Patsy; two sons, Clint (Lisa) Williams and Timothy Isaacs; a brother, Raymond (Francine) Liszewski; and a sister, Ruth (Richard) Marcinkiewicz. Ronald was the loving grandfather of Kimberly (Erik) Knefelkamp, Lori (John) Parrett, Michelle (Dan) Fenwick, Monica (Ed) Schroeder, and Theresa Williams, and he was a proud great-grandfather of Kaitlyn, Nicholas, Luke, Scarlett, Alison and Eddie, all of St. Louis, Missouri.
Ronald was born in Madison, Illinois in 1942. He attended Saint Leo Elementary School and graduated from Central High School in St. Louis, Missouri. He served his apprenticeship as a Machinist and Tool & Die Maker at American Can Company. He retired from the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 2005.
Ronald especially enjoyed deer hunting, fishing trips and making wine. He made annual fishing expeditions to Canada and also made a trip to Ketchikan, Alaska. He also enjoyed automobile trips with his wife-Patsy, and friends touring the North and the Southwest. He and Patsy took a cruise of the Hawaiian Islands in 2007 and renewed their wedding vows.
Ronald was a beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Cousin and Friend. Ron was truly loved by many. “The Loss is immeasurable, but so is the Love Left Behind.”
A memorial Celebration of his Life will be held at a later date.
