On the 7th of July, in 1940
Ronald Romaine Rhoades was born.
Athlyn (Detar) and Clifford of Rimersburg PA
Were blessed in such a very big way.
Funny, witty, and smart; a pistol from the start,
For those who knew him, he had the biggest heart.
Beverly Ann Hollobaugh became his wife
And loved him dearly until the end of his life.
Alan, Julie & Christopher, the 3 children that they had
Lucky kids to end up with such an awesome Dad.
He worked for National Fuel, the friendliest gas man
Until Grandchildren became his retirement plan.
Angi, Daniel, Jonathan, Allie & Tyler,
His older years only got wilder.
Dump trucks, plowing roads, Union Township Supervisor,
Alternating turns with his young shotgun riders.
Rollerblading, tickle fights, always on the run,
We can surely say that our Poppy was fun.
Great Grand daughters? He had four
Alyssa, Mara, Kailin, and Rylan, he absolutely adored.
They filled his home with energy and laughter
He definitely needed a nap after.
Hunting and fishing were his pleasure
But his family and friends were his true treasure
Deep in the woods was his favorite place
Tracking animals, enjoying the chase.
On November 25, Jesus took him by the hand
And guided him to the Promised Land
He passed in his home surrounded by love.
Reunited with his parents in heavens above.
