A celebration of life service will be held on Friday, May 24, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. at Oglebay Park, Haller Shelter with military honors.

The family invites you to join them in wearing red, white and blue to honor Ron’s deep love of this country. Light refreshments will follow the service.

Ron was a U.S. veteran, proudly serving our country in the United States Navy where he received training in dental prosthetics which he used to serve the dental community of Wheeling, WV for 43 years with his business, Anderson Dental Lab. He was an avid outdoors-man who enjoyed sharing his love of hunting, fishing, and nature activities with his children and grandchildren. He was a man driven by his strong faith and filled our lives with love and energy through his kindness, work ethic, and generosity.

Always quick to respond, he would put his hands to the plow where there was a need and pray for you wherever he met you. He loved nature and the rugged outdoors and appreciated the beauty of the most delicate flower. Therefore, it is fitting, as a tribute to this amazing man, to create a rose garden in his honor where people can rest in the beauty of God’s creation and find peace in prayer. If desired, outdoor potted plants, like rose bushes, may be brought to the service or delivered to the family at the Oglebay Bluet cabin Thursday or Friday (23rd, 24th) to be included in the prayer garden or memorial donations can be forwarded to www. gofund me.com/ron-anderson- memorial- prayer- garden.
