Dear Trish, Kurt and Laurie, Karen and Andy, Keith and Sarah and Families - We are so sorry about Ron’s passing. We had hoped to be in Appleton today, but there was another ice storm last night. We know that Ron was first a family man. He loved all of you very much. May all your fond memories bring you peace and love.
Cory Gilbert family left a message on February 6, 2019:
Dear Kaiser Family,
I would like to start off with my sincere condolences. Ron was a wonderful roll model, the kind you looked up to with respect and listened to the words he said. He taught me a lot growing up. Going on all the Boy Scout adventures with Ron and my Dad to Gardner Dam for summer and winter camp. These were fun, memorable and cherished times full of learning life lessons and laughter.
Every time my family and I would get the chance to catch a Timber Rattler game we enjoyed getting to say hello and catch up with Ron for a few minutes.
Ron touched a lot of hearts over the years inside the park and outside of the park.

With my deepest love and sympathy,

Dearest Trish, Kurt, Karen & Keith - So sorry for your loss. What a delightful curmudgeon of a guy Ron was! Remembering the scare in Pekin, IL. Grateful for the blessings in the years since that time. Sending love and prayers. Wish I could join you in the celebration of his life. Will hold you all in my heart. Peace...
Patrick Nicholson left a message on February 5, 2019:
So sorry for your loss. I had the good fortune and pleasure to meet Ron while serving on the D3 Baseball World Series Host Committee for 14 years. It was also fun to interact with Ron over the weekend, as well as see him while attending Trats games. We loved to banter back and forth. He always made me smile.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

It was great to run into Ron at McDonalds in the morning. He always asked about my parents, who lived in the neighborhood until 3 years ago. Enjoyed talking to him and the "other Ron". Thoughts and prayers to the entire family.
Louise Springer left a message on February 3, 2019:
Ron was a steady reasoned presence for us at KCWRE...safety, security, fire wardens, traffic...I never heard a disparaging word from or towards him in all the years I knew him. A good guy!
Ted Tornow left a message on February 3, 2019:
Was very sorry to hear of Ron's passing. Every trip to the ballpark always included a visit with Ron. He liked to tell me stories of when - in his younger years - he and his uncle delivered goods to our family-run store - Tornow's Market. We shared alot of stories and laughed often! He was always very kind to my family and quick with a smile! On behalf of the entire Tornow family - please accept our condolences for your loss.

Ron was an outstanding person. I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Ron through the Boy Scouts of America. He was the Scoutmaster and I the Camp Director at the time. He did so much for our youth. At camp he appreciated the nickname that we had for him: "Papa Kaiser." He will be sorry missed.
Chuck and Laura Keely left a message on February 2, 2019:

Julie Schmidt left a message on February 2, 2019:
To the Kaiser family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked at KC North when Ron was our security guard. Always loved the banter we’d receive when entering the building, especially when saying “Good Morning” and Ron would say “what’s so good about it?” returning a smirk as you would walk past. After he retired, we would see him at the baseball stadium with his bantering and smiles. Sending prayers for all. RIP Ron.

Thinking of you, Trish, and family. So sorry for your loss. Ron was a lot of fun. Everyone knew they'd get "dinged" by one of his remarks. He kept everyone on their toes and grinning. Prayers for all.

Ron's family,

My condolences on your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting/working with Ron while being clubhouse manager from 2012-2015 with the Timber Rattlers. May the Lord bring you peace and healing in this difficult time. "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." -Psalm 34:18
Robb Roidt left a message on February 1, 2019:
Trish and family, I want to pass along my sincerest sympathy. I am saddened to hear of Ron's passing. My visits to the stadium will not be the same. Ron made me laugh with his humor and I always looked forward to him being my "personal security"! Not only that...he was my official Spider-Man stand-in whenever I did that character there! He was a unique individual who touched and influenced the lives of countless people. My prayers to you and your family.

Jan Larsen left a message on February 1, 2019:
I knew Ron at Kimberly-Clark and at the T-Rats Stadium. At KC we had wonderful chats when he would find me at my desk when I was working a weekend. He always gave me a "hard time" when we would meet at a Rattlers game, but it was always said with a wink and a smile. You will be missed!

Emily Johnson & family left a message on January 31, 2019:
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Trish and the entire family. Ron was a very special person to my husband, son, and I as my husband was his assistant at the baseball park. We spent many workday lunch breaks with Ron who always made me laugh with his whitty comments and sarcasm that was always followed up by a grin. We will always hold the special memory in our hearts of the day he met our son JJ, and getting to see a complete teddy bear demeanor come out as he made silly faces and funny noises to get him to smile. Ron will truly be missed but now we know that when we go to a Timber Rattlers game there is another very special Angel in the outfield!

Trish and Family - You are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. Ron was always my favorite to pick on and always had a warm hug or greeting that made you feel special. He was such a wonderful man and will be greatly missed at the ballpark. It won't seem right out there without him, but we know he'll be watching ball from up above. May your memories give you comfort at this time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
Brad Butterfield left a message on January 31, 2019:
