3 Tributes for “Ronald Lenaker

    We are so sorry to hear of Ron’s death. Ron & Sylvia were two of the first people we met when moving to Antigo in 1984. It’s because of the Lenaker family that our sons Mark & Jon are Bears fans to this day! Sylvia was our daughter Ruth’s godmother. We attended couple’s Bible Study with Ron & Sylvia (Sugar) for many years and it was a privilege to watch all of you grow up! We ran into Paul & Mary at Bay Beach this summer when we were there with grandkids (daughter Rachel’s kids). Please know you all are in our prayers. May the Lord be your strength, comfort, hope and peace during this difficult time.
    Love from all the Stoehr family
