In Loving Memory

Werner, Ronald

Ron Werner, 71, of St. Louis, passed away on April 20th, 2024. Ron was born on October 9th, 1952, to Rene and Ruth Werner. Ron graduated from St. Mary’s High School, St. Louis, in 1971. He was the heart, soul, and pillar of support for his family, friends, and all those he loved. Ron’s favorite things in life were his grandchildren, his dogs, and being outside in nature. Ron took pride in the sharp upkeep of his lawn and neighbors would catch a glimpse of him trimming his lawn with scissors to get it “just right.” Ron was known for his strong work ethic, silly sense of humor and loved to make everyone laugh.

Ron is survived by his loving wife Karen Werner, his beloved children Marissa (John) Kargacin, Luke (Melissa) Werner and the lights of his life, his grandchildren; Avery and Harper Kargacin and Addison and Jackson Werner. In addition, he is survived by his brother Stephen Werner, sister Lisa (Greg) Gutknecht and nephew Evan (Emily) Gutknecht. Beloved brother-in-law of Allen (Sally) Moore, Steven (Natalia) Moore and beloved Uncle to Josh (Jill) Moore. Beloved son-in-law to Melba Moore.

Ron was preceded in death by his mother and father, Ruth and Rene Werner.

    Heaven will be getting a very special soul. I remember him being funny and always nice and non judgemental. Heaven ‘s gardens will never look so good. Ron will be up there with his scissors-and not just any scissors, but GOLDEN ONES!!
