Obituary of Ronald Ragon

Ronald R. Ragon, 74, Marion, went to be with the Lord at 8:24 p.m. on Friday, February 2, 2018. He was born in Indiana on November 28, 1943, to the late Ralph R. and Louise (Crepes) Ragon. Ronald married Sheila K. Raquet on December 5, 1964, and she survives.

Ronald was a former manager/mechanic at Crest Lanes, and he attended Liberty Baptist Church. He loved the sport of bowling and had bowled seven documented 300 games throughout his life. Watching and attending sporting events was always a part of his life. He also loved being on the water and used to fish when he was a little boy. Ronald enjoyed walking, movies, being with his dogs, playing cards (especially Poker), and was a member of a Euchre club.

Spending time with his family was of utmost importance to Ronald. They will miss him dearly, and he will also be remembered for his goofy and "smart a?!" funny sense of humor.
