Ronald F. "Ron" Wiese, age 84, of Ursa, died on Thursday, August 20, 2020, at 4:58 pm in Blessing Hospital.

Ron was born November 12, 1935 in Vermillion County, Illinois, the son of Emil and Thelma Browning Wiese. He married Sylvia Uden on July 1, 1960 in Immanuel Lutheran Church in Thomasboro, Illinois. She survives.

Ron was a 1953 graduate of Homer High School in Homer, Illinois. He was employed at John Deere just out of high school and also worked as a welder for Nelson Concrete in Champaign, Illinois. He started with the Adwell Corporation in the Pekin area in 1966. In 1972, he continued working for them as he started farming in Meyer, Illinois. He was a farm manager at Adwell until his retirement in 2005. Ron had a passion for farming and loved spending time on the farm and making sure everything ran smoothly. His love of farming was also evident in his collection of toy tractors.

Ron enjoyed watching college basketball and was a die hard Indiana Hoosiers fan. He was even known to wager on sports games. In recent years, Ron became an Iowa Hawkeye fan. He also enjoyed attending his great grandchildren's sporting events.

Ron was a devoted family man and he dearly loved his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the lights of his life. He also had a love for dogs and he always had a least one dog, but never more than five at any given time. If you were fortunate enough to know Ron, you will remember his great smile and his love for visiting.

Survivors in addition to his wife, Sylvia, include three children, Lisa (Brian) Seals of Warsaw, IL, Robin (Peter) Milnes of Bedford, NH, and Mark (Linda) Wiese of Ursa; four grandchildren, Kelly (Kevin) Lash of Coatsburg, IL, Andrew Milnes and Brook (Nicole) Milnes, both of Bedford, NH, and Meredith (Brad) DeMay of Boca Raton, FL; 10 great-grandchildren, Austin, Kaleb, Reid, Sophie, Carter, Kale, Avery, Maci, Sadie and Logan; a sister, Carolyn Strickland of Alabama; three sisters-in-law, Phyllis Kopecky, Barbara Bush, and Lori Price; three brother-in-law, John Morrison, Raymond Uden, and Melvin Uden; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Lowell Wiese, and three sisters, Christine Morrison, Joan Tate, and Irma Smith.
