Ronald L. Liszewski, age 75, of St. Louis, Missouri, passed away peacefully on May 7, 2018, at his home surrounded by his loving family and devoted friends.

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.

    To my Dearest Patsy, I was very Blessed to have had the privilege of having Ron and You in my life! He took over the spot in my heart where I had a hole.

Ron God Speed!!❤️

    Oh Dear Patsy, You have been a pastoral care taker for many as a sojourner on this earth. We pray that God gives you the peace you have earned in all you do and in the loss of such a good man. Ron’s pictures took me through a good 40 + years of sharing stories of your and Ron’s lives — the best the bleak, the difficult and the happy times you have lived together. Know that he is always with you and that you can talk with him anytime, day or night. Your love will ever change as God keeps you both in his care. Love and prayers for you as always.

  9. Laura Lambert says:

    Dear Patsy, My heart goes out to you at this difficult time, but how fortunate you were to find and marry your soulmate – St. Ron. God truly blessed your marriage for so many years, and it was obvious to see how much Ron adored you. He was such a remarkable guy. I know the past few months have been difficult for you, but take consolation in knowing that he has a great caretaker looking out for him now.

  10. Dear friend, mentor and confidant,

    My heart is so heavy for the loss of your best friend and forever love, Ron. As a couple, you were unstoppable. You and he were the couple so many of us aspired to have; your love for each other so evident. I remember all the kindnesses and the compassion he showed both me and Scott; I don’t know where he found the time or patience most of the time, but he did, and he shared it willingly with everyone in need. He told great stories, he made not so bad wine, but the meanest margarita! His eyes had a twinkle with friends and loved ones and his laughter always sincere. He found it so impossible to be negative. I cannot imagine your sorrow but I do know, believe deeply, that Ron is with you and will always be with you. You will notice it in many ways as time goes on. Your memories are many, and will help you through the difficult times, I pray.

    With my love and many hugs and prayers,
