This morning at 8:53am Ron passed away surrounded by loving family.
Yesterday, Darleen opened Ron's phone to discover a scheduled daily notification that says simply, "Who needs me today?"
In true Ron fashion, his last act of service on this earth was to donate his organs to other families. Someone needed him today. We hope that his example will remind us all to also ask each day, "Who needs me today?"
Thanks to everyone who has offered support with their kind words and incredibly generous donations. Any donations and shares are still greatly appreciated to help with the financial burden.
Ron was a man of great faith who knew there was important work to do on the other side. His family feels peace in that faith and in the enveloping love he leaves behind. We love and miss you, Ron.
On Sunday morning September 25th, Ron Frank, a father, husband, son, grandfather, uncle, and friend, went into cardiac arrest. He is currently in a non-medically induced coma and has only had some small reactions to our voices and hand squeezes, with very little brain activity. He is only 63 years old and could out hike people half his age, so this news comes as a shock to us all. If you know Ron, you know that the world doesn’t even deserve him. He is the kindest, most selfless, and loving person and has dedicated his entire life to serving God and others.
This fundraiser has been put together in an effort to ease the financial burden of this sudden medical emergency and support those who love and need him here. All donations will go directly to Ron’s loving wife, Darleen and their beautiful family. Any donations, no matter how small, would be so graciously appreciated as they navigate this difficult time.
Ron's youngest daughter, Elise, will also be accepting any direct donations sent via Venmo if you prefer. Her Venmo is @Elise_Della
