Age 78

Ronald Lee Scherich was born April 9, 1937, in Richhill Township, PA to Virgil and Esther Scherich. After high school Ron joined the USAF and served his country honorably having earned various medals. His bravery during the Vietnam War is a source of great pride to us all. He fought his illness with the same bravery but at last succumbed on February 4, 2016. He loved to ish and watch birds. He was a kind soul that would give anyone the shirt off of his back. Ron is survived by his wife of 56 years, Alicia; daughter Norma; son Steve; granddaughter Jazmine; brothers, Vernon and Rodney; sisters, Darlene and Linda; as well as many beloved nieces and nephews. At a later date a military service will be held in Pennsylvania at his family's farm where he was raised and where his ashes will be scattered.
