Ronald Joseph Razniewski, 77, of Sycamore, Illinois passed away on November 23, 2020. He was born May 3rd, 1943 in Chicago, IL., to Chester and Lucille Razniewski. He married Dorothy Yeloushan (nee Ringenberg) on July 24, 1982; They shared 38 wonderful years of marriage together. Ronald attended St. Gerald’s Catholic Grade School, and went on to Oak Lawn High School graduating in 1961. In December 1961 he enlisted in the Navy and proudly served his country on the Aircraft Carriers USS Saratoga & USS Roosevelt for 2+ years during the Cuban crisis, was stationed in Morocco for 2 years and was honorably discharged in 1966. Ron worked at UARCO Business Forms, as a supervisor, where he learned how to operate the most intricate and largest printing machines housed in Chicago. He was transferred to DeKalb, IL in 1982. For a brief period Ron worked at Sycamore Container and shortly thereafter was hired as supervisor at NIU Document Services for 5 years. After fully retiring Ron worked part-time at the Park District as a Park Ranger. Ron’s true joy was spending time on any golf course, ultimately registering five holes in one! Second to golf, Ron enjoyed boating, played games of Ping Pong with “Doc” at the bowling alley and had a God-given knack for wood-working projects, building cabinets, laying hardwood floors/ceramics, and was readily available for family, friends, neighbors and anyone who needed his help. Ronald was preceded in death by his parents, Chester (1981) & Lucille (1960); sister Joyce Bernard (2008); brother-in-law Russ Froelke (2003) of Paw Paw, MI. and most recently brother-in-law Dave Gentzen (2020).
