Ronald Joseph Plamann, age 74, of Little Chute, passed away on August 22, 2022 at his home. Ron was born on November 26, 1947 in Appleton Wisconsin to Melvin and Virginia (Mauthe) Plamann. He was a graduate of Appleton High School, Class of 1966. After graduation he served his country as a member of the U.S. Army National Guard. On June 15, 1968 he married the former Connie Ulrich, and they enjoyed over 34 years together before she preceded him in death on January 27, 2003.
Ron enjoyed spending time with his family and the great outdoors. He loved time at the family cottage, which he built for their retirement home. His favorite past times were fishing, bow hunting, and bird hunting with his favorite dog, Mitzie. Back in his younger years, you could find Ron either at the softball diamond, or the bowling alley having a drink or two with friends. Whenever you were around dad, you were never short of a good laugh, his sense of humor was one of a kind and could leave you laughing for hours.
He is survived by 3 daughters, Ronda (Jeff) Lorenz; Pattie (Scott) Witthuhn; Erin (Timothy) Teske; 4 grandchildren, Zachary and Matthew Miller; Taylor and Colby Witthuhn; sister Nancy (James) Bethe, as well as nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Connie, brother-in-law and sister-in-law James (Bonnie) Ulrich, and Connie’s parents Edward and Bernice Ulrich.
