KREIE, Ronald D., Oct 26, 1935 Jul 11, 2009, of Fort Calhoun, NE. Ron was born in Dodge City, Kansas on October 26, 1935. He was an active member of the Living Hope Church in Blair, Nebraska. Ron worked for the Jewel-T Company and retired after 29 years of service in sales. His strong work ethic would not let him sit idle in retirement. As an entrepreneur, he started several small businesses over a five year span. He later served as President of the Omaha based Sterile Manufacturing Company for nine years. Married for over 50 years, he was devoted to his wife and children. Ron was never shy with his opinion, advice, or a helping hand. Animals were also a large part of his life as he supported his children in the raising and training of Morgan horses. And no matter how tired or busy, he always had extra time and energy for his grandkids. Friends were an important part of Rons life. He was always generous to those in need, sharing spiritual guidance, financial support, or his personal time as the situation deemed necessary. Rons guidance, generosity and support will be missed. Ron is preceded in death by daughter, Theresa Lynn Cox.
