Ronald Harvey Schuermann was born August 26th, 1933, to Harvey August Schuermann and Agnes Fiksdal in Anthony Kansas.
Ronald passed away after a prolonged illness on April 11, 2020, at the age of 86. Ron is survived by his wife, Nola; his daughters, Rhonda, Doni, Patty; sons, Mike and Gerald; sister Sal Baker; and his brother, Richard Schuermann.
He was preceded in death by both parents.
I want to thank you, Rhonda, for sharing your Dad with us. Ron always made us feel loved as if we were his own. We teased him for being crazy taking on 4 more kids, but the simple truth comes down to he was crazy about my mother, Nola. Ron treated her as if she made his world go round to his very last.
Ron will always be remembered as an excellent husband, father and friend. He always had a quick smile and enjoyed what we call the Schuermann shindigs (family gathering). Ron and Calvin, that’s Doni’s husband, had an on-going contest to see who could out-do the other with unique gifts. Those gifts included homemade gadgets with a script to explain how it operated, and that gadgets extraordinary features. There were many, like Deere John, the electric hammer and too many to list here.
Ronald also had a very spiritual side and was a deacon in the First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City. Always friendly, outgoing and always enjoyed the company of others. You will be sorely missed by all of us.
