Ronald F. Richeson, beloved husband, father and papa passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 peacefully at home.
Private family services will be held at a later date. The Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 JFK Road is assisting the family.
Ronald was born in Dubuque, Iowa on September 19, 1941. He graduated from Dubuque Senior High School, Class of 1959. Soon after graduation he joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17. He served honorably from 1959- 1963.
On August 17, 1963 Ronald married Margo Zimmerman and they were happily married for 56 years. During these years they raised three children and enjoyed six grandchildren.
Ronald was employed by John Deere for 30 years as a machine operator. Retirement was full of enjoyment. He loved taking care of his yard and writing movie reviews for the TH and Golden View. Winter months in warm places was a must, so much to see and do. Vacations over the years always included a city with a Major League Baseball team so that a game could be enjoyed.
But more than anything he loved his family. He was a wonderful husband, proud father, and doting papa. A loyal friend who will be missed by all who knew him.
Ron is survived by his wife, Margo; his daughters, Lisa (Thomas) Gilbertson and Laura (Roger) Brandel; his son, Daniel (Cathy) Richeson; six grandchildren, Cory (Melanie) Gilbertson, Mitchell Gilbertson, Hope Gilbertson, Hannah (fiancé Jason) Brandel, Tessa Brandel and Jenna Brandel.
Ronald’s family would like to extend a sincere thank you to Dr. Jennifer Burds and Dr. Tauseef Khan for their kindness and care over the years.

Margo and family, you have my sympathy in the loss of Ron, your husband and father.
Margo, I remember your kind message of sympathy when my wife Doris (Simon) McElmeel passed away over 3 years ago. You and Dori spent many years in the 1960s working together at Ridge Motors, and if memory serves me correctly she was in your wedding party. She always had fond memories of the great times you had working together and the fun you had dealing with your boss Ed. Those were really the good times and the good memories live on.
Regards, Steve McElmeel

My most heartfelt sympathy to all of you. I was so sorry to read of your Dads passing. Although it has been many years since our paths have crossed I remember your Dad fondly. Kind smile and welcoming hello when I’d come to your house back in the day. Love and prayers to you and your family, Jennifer (Wareham) Leibold
