In following his wishes there will be a graveside funeral at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at East Gilead Cemetery. The family was cared for by Dutcher Funeral Home.

Ronald was born May 13, 1952 to Eli and Alice (Burch) Martin in Coldwater. After graduation from high school he started a 20 year career with Carlisle Bobbers until they closed the business.
