Ronald W. Jennings, age 68, of Swanton, at no fault of his own was tragically taken from us on Thursday, May 24, 2018 with injuries received in an automobile accident near his home. He was born in Bowling Green, OH on February 10, 1950 to the late Floyd Jennings and Martha (Miller) Jennings.
Ron was a 1968 graduate of Delta High School. He was an Army Veteran having served during the Vietnam War. He later married his high school sweet heart in 1975, Cherie (Falor) Beaudry and they spent 10 years together. Ron was a journeyman by trade, formerly working at Lear Corp, Plaxicon and Sauder Manufacturing for many years as a machine mechanic. Ron was also a self-employed farmer, enjoying all aspects of his occupation. Being very mechanically gifted he was known to fix anything.
Most of all he will be missed by his girls and family as the perfect; father, grandfather and best friend. Left to cherish his memories are his daughters, Andrea (Tim) Robinson of Waterville, Suzanna (John) Chandler of Delta and Pam (Danny) Wright of Delta; grandchildren, Scarlett Robinson, Noah Genson, Colette Robinson, Juliette Robinson, Waylon Wright, and Colton Wright; sisters, Maxine Metzger, Linda (Chuck) Sharp and Sue Vandenbroek.
