With very heavy hearts our family would like to announce that our husband, father, uncle, grandfather, & great grandfather, Ron Van Gelder, has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. We are all grateful for the love and support we have received from everyone. However, at this time, our family would ask for privacy as we navigate through this incredibly trying time. We appreciate everyone’s feelings & just how many peoples’ lives this wonderful man has touched. The ONLY donations we ask for on this website are memories, photos and love. Prayers & good thoughts are always encouraged.
