November 24, 1939 — March 9, 2015

Ronald Casperson, age 75 passed away on Monday, March 9, 2015 at ThedaClark hospital with his loving family by his side. Ron was born to the late Edward and Marcella (Ponkratz) Casperson on November 24, 1939. He was united in marriage to Carla Schultz on July 9, 1977. Ronald graduated from Appleton West High School. He retired from George Banta Company where he was a lithograph artist and a union steward.

Ron loved and lived large. He was the life of every party, bringing crowds to laughter with his funny antics, wit, and storytelling. He would lend a helping hand to anyone in need. A master of many crafts, he could build, restore, or create anything with precision with his skilled hands. Anything that had Ron's touch would be finished with pride and attention to perfect detail. He taught his family many skills and always to strive for excellence.

Ron is survived by his wife of 37 years, Carla; his brother Richard (Jackie) Casperson; his daughters Diedre (Lloyd) Lacasse, Shellie (Rick) Souza of Massachussets, Holly Edwards, and Kelly (Sean) Brennan of California; his sons John Edwards (Carol Wessel) and Mitchel (Heather) Edwards; his grandchildren: Ian, Caitlin, Sarah, Christina, Rachel, Joanna, Brandon, Connerie, Calvin, Owen and Elle; his great grandchildren Ava and Bauer. Ron is preceded in death by both of his parents and his beloved daughter Melindi.
