Ronald Joseph Alheit, 58, passed away at his residence on the morning of Sunday, October 15, 2023. Born in Elyria, Ohio, on July 28, 1965, Ronald was the son of Donald Alheit, Sr. and the late Charlotte Lemasters Vincent.
Ronald began his professional career at his family's junk yard, Butternut Ridge. As he progressed in his career, Ronald transitioned to Gregory Trucking, where he continued to grow both personally and professionally. However, Ronald's career path took a significant turn when he joined Boeing. His skills and expertise shone brightly as he dedicated himself to the aerospace industry, working on projects that had a profound impact on aviation. After his time at Boeing, Ronald served as a civilian employee at Robins Air Force Base as an F-15 aircraft painter and later a yuke and crane operator for 17 years.
Beyond his professional life, Ronald had a deep love for a variety of hobbies and pastimes. He was an avid car enthusiast, finding joy in tinkering with and restoring vehicles. Fishing was another cherished activity that allowed him to connect with the outdoors. He also enjoyed relaxing under a big umbrella on the beach and savoring the simple pleasures of life.
Above all, Ronald was a devoted family man who found immense joy in the company of his loved ones. He cherished every moment spent with his family, especially his grandchildren, and found happiness in chasing them around and making memories together.
