He was born July 4, 1957 in Dover, Ohio and was the son of the late Allan Edward and Shirley Rohn Fish. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a grandson, Dylan Markwell.
Ron was formerly employed by Earth 'N Woods Products and Landscaping in North Canton, Dakota Tree Service of New Philadelphia, but was more widely known for working at N.L.
