Ronald A. Ethen
My Dad was a Loving Father who Mentored and Shared
A Loyal Friend who Helped and who Cared
A Dear Grandpa who Counseled and Taught
A Faithful Soldier for his Country he Fought
A Noble Provider who was Focused and Grounded
A Hard-Working Man that Always Kept his Skills Well Rounded
A Devout Catholic who Faithfully Believed
A Good Son whose Parents’ Honor he Weaved
A Humble and Private Soul who Followed his Own Path
A Life-Loving Guy with a Hearty Good Laugh
Lord, accept my Dad into your Heavenly Home. Say to him, “Well done good and faithful servant.”
And keep him in your loving arms forever.
Goodbye Dad. You are loved, and you will be terribly missed.
