Ronald W. Sable, Sr., 77, of Bentleyville, died Friday evening, February 1, 2019 at the Washington Hospital.
Ron, a Pennsylvania native, lived a simple but rewarding life.
He was a loving husband and father, an Army Veteran, and an honorary fourth-degree member of the Knights of Columbus. His devotion to his family and faith were beyond reproach.
Ron was best known to be an industrial worker followed by a transportation expert. As a professional driver, Ron traveled all across America, making friends everywhere he went. He always could make a friend and was best known to be the kindest person in the room.
Ron’s devotion to his one and only love Monica was superior to any love story ever written. A widower of 44 years, Ron never disconnected from the bond they shared. A large portion of his life honored her by staying committed to their short-lived union.
Ron is survived by his son Ron, and his daughter-in-law Nora.
Deceased are his parents William M. and Ann Tillie Remish Sable and a sister, Marlene A. Lutes.
