  1. My deepest condolences to the family if Ronskd Ahl. There will always be a life full of happy memories to look back on in the days and years ahead.

    Employee at LT&T in his dad’s department. His sister, Joanie, was Carl’s secretary.

  2. Ron was my father-in-law for several years. I married his son, Jeff, in 1985 and was blessed with 2 sons, Jacob Tyler Ahl and Joshua Lind Ahl. Ron was one of a kind and always found humor in most situations. I remember trips that Jeff and I would take with Ron and Jan to Vegas. We certainly had a great time. I will never forget when I would call their house (to speak to Jan) he would always yell upstairs “Telephone for Jeanette!!” I’m sure they were glad to see him when he arrived in heaven…..

  3. Ron was a sweet man who adored his family, especially his wife. I will never forget all our conversations in my office at the bank close to his home. We laughed & cried together over the years as he enjoyed sharing stories about his life, adventures & family.
    I knew his sons as we were the same age & they hung out with my older brother, so he would share shenanigans of their youth, as well as pictures from his trips & stories of many topics. If I was busy with another customer, he would make sure I, at the very least, saw him and wave hello before he left.
    I will treasure the memories we shared and I am grateful to know he is at peace and surrounded by those he dearly loved who passed before him. Rest In Peace my friend, until we meet again.
