The memorial organizer requested donations in honor of Ronald Smith


Memorial Fund (Scholarship, Dedication, etc.).

Ron desired that the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ be spread to the ends of the earth, and his children all agree that Ron would want any monetary gifts to be used in this way. In lieu of flowers, monetary gifts will be collected and equally distributed to Ron’s children. Each of the four families will place their portion in an envelope, and as a family will pray, asking for God’s guidance for the use of these funds, in their entirety, for the spread of the gospel throughout the world, and as a lasting tribute to Ron’s life. “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.” - Isaiah 40:8 Thank you for any part you wish to have in this tribute. To God be the glory!

    I was blessed to have a father-in-law who enjoyed family time. We spent a lot of time together on vacations, at holidays and many other times. He was a great grandpa to our children.

    Dad was surrounded by many wonderful people at Episcopal Homes in St. Paul. They are some of the many brave heroes that are serving vulnerable people in these trying times.
