Obituary for Ronald A. "Ron" Perkey

Ronald “Ron” A. Perkey, age 77, of Spring Grove, passed away suddenly on Christmas morning at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born on July 4, 1942, in Chicago to Charles and Erma (Thomas) Perkey. Ron met the love of his life, Karen Barkau, and they were united in marriage on October 20, 1962.

On any given warm day, Ron undoubtedly could be found tending to his meticulous yard which he took so much pride. He also enjoyed golfing and a good game of poker or pinochle with friends. Ron was a dedicated Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bears fan. One of his favorite past times was chasing around his grand-dog, Cloe. Ron was a caring husband, loving father, doting grandpa, fond brother, uncle, and friend, who will be deeply missed.

Left behind to cherish Ron’s memory are his devoted wife of 57 years, Karen; three daughters, Tammy Mitchell, Tina (Peter) Nardella, Tracy (Jason Nied) Deckert; three grandchildren, Matthew (Kathryn), Michael (Taylor), Danielle; four brothers, Dennis (Sherry) Perkey, Steve (Pam) Perkey, Larry Perkey, Mark (Barbara) Perkey; a sister, Betty Perkey; three sisters-in-law, Peggy Perkey, Donna Perkey, Flora Barkau; a brother-in-law, Joe (Judy) Mathews; cousins, Rog, Bobbie-Sue; and many nieces and nephews and long time friends, Bob (Judy) Rokavec.

In addition to his parents, Ron was preceded in death by three brothers, Howard Scholebo, Tom Perkey, and Richard Perkey. Ron will also be reunited and receiving many kisses from his favorite bird, Mango.
