Ronald E. Enders, age 82, St. Paul, Minnesota, formerly Cameron, Wis., passed away on Thursday, January 19, 2023, peacefully at home with family after a long and courageous battle with the disease.
He was born June 26, 1940 in Rice Lake to Edward and Inez (Briggs) Enders. Ron graduated from Cameron High School in 1959 and then enlisted in the United States Air Force, serving from 1960 to 1964.

He met his wife Kathleen in 1969 through mutual friends in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They were married on April 4, 1970 in Gregory, SD
Ron was a true life lover and loved his family deeply. He was a wonderful father and husband, nature lover, lifelong student and fan of the Green Bay Packers. You never had to worry about entertaining someone when they were there; he was always the life of the party.
Ron was one of a kind. He will always be remembered, never forgotten and will be dearly missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.
Surviving, in addition to his loving wife of nearly 53 years, are sons Chris (Heidi) and Sean; siblings Cecil (Darlette), Carol, Margaret (Mike), Mary and Terry (Lynn); and many nieces and nephews.
Ron was preceded in death by his father and mother.
