Ron grew up in Dell Rapids and went to school at St. Mary’s where he graduated in 1965. He went on to pursue an Electronics degree at DeVry University in Chicago. Ron proudly served his country as a member of the U.S. Army during the Viet Nam War. After his time in the service and for many years thereafter, Ron worked as a sales representative and educator for Prudential Life Insurance. Ron was a great cook and gardener and loved to share these passions with his family and friends.
In his retirement years, Ron took on jobs at a small truck stop near Madison and then later at the grocery store in Dell Rapids. Ron started out working at his dad’s grocery store, Ken’s Super Saver as a young man and ended his working days full circle in the grocery business where he found joy in serving others.
Ron was a kind, generous and loving man and will be missed dearly by his family and friends. Ron leaves behind three special young people he called his own; Cody, Cameron and Jasmine, his mother LaVonne Miller, his siblings JoAnn Dickinson, Wayne (Barb) Miller, Patti (Tom) O’Connor, DeeDee (Brad) Iwen, Mary Lou (Brian) Johnson, Tom (Marcy) Miller, Kathy (Carl) Mousel, Donna (Daryl) Springman, Doug (Pam) Miller, and Teresa (Pete) Gatto and many nieces and nephews.
