Obituary for Ronald D. "Ron" Hunley

Ronald D. "Ron" Hunley, 75, of Olney, passed away on Friday, December 21, 2018 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes.  Ron was born on September 4, 1943 in Joliet, IL, the son of Garland Dale and Irene (Froncek) Hunley.  He married Sherlyn A. (King) on November 14, 1962 in Springfield, IL and she preceded him in death on November 20, 2018. 

Ron, along with his wife, were a couple willing to share their faith in Jesus with others, offering prayer and comfort during the many years they hosted Bible studies in their home. He was a family man and loved having his kids and grandkids around. Fishing with his grandkids was one of his favorite pastimes and it made for some hilarious stories over the years. He enjoyed woodworking, car shows, a good nap and just tinkering around on any number of projects. Dad was dedicated to our mom, especially during the years her health was in decline. And he was with her daily during long hospital stays. He was always on a first name basis with the hospital staff and no matter what facility she was in, he always seemed to know where the coffee machine was located. He was always willing to help out family or friends and never knew a stranger. Even a trip to Walmart could take a while as he considered it a social activity. His sudden and unexpected passing coming only a month after losing Mom has left a huge hole in our hearts and the pain runs deep. But we know they will be watching and smiling over us from the balcony of Heaven as we carry on the traditions and values they instilled in us.

Ron is survived by his Daughter, Deborah Hunley of Olney; Son, Brian Hunley and wife Melinda of Broken Arrow, OK; Daughter, Kristin Thomas and husband Jim of Olney; Daughter, Jennifer Propes and husband Bill of Olney; Grandchildren, Jacob Hunley and wife Flecia, Alexandria Hanna and husband Kyle, Caleb Thomas, Isaac Propes, Logan Hunley, Nolan Hunley, and Maxson Hunley; Great Grandchildren, Azariah, Myla, Jessa, and Greyson; Brother, David Hunley and wife Trudy of Atlanta, GA.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife. 

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 PM on Friday, December 28, 2018 at the Elm Street Christian Church with a visitation beginning at 11:00 AM.  Burial will follow in Clay City Cemetery.
