Ronald Wixson

1965 - 2023

Ronald Edward Wixson age 58 of Benton Township passed away unexpectedly May 3, 2023 at McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital in Petoskey.

He was born March 10, 1965 in Wayne, Michigan to Ronald and Donna (Deneen) Wixson.

Ron is survived by his wife, Pam, (Elder) Wixson, stepson Dean Burley of Colorado Springs, his parents, Ronald Wixson and Donna Hansen, of Cheboygan, sister Janet (Don) Ramsay of Cheboygan, his mother-in-law Lucille Elder of Charlevoix, sister-in-law Gaye (Jack) Hodge of Charlevoix, brother-in-law Terry (Ami Mateskon) Elder and several nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins.

Ron graduated from Cheboygan High School in 1983. He worked various odd jobs, but his heart was in Construction with a love of operating heavy equipment. His jobs took him to various States to work including New York, Colorado, Louisiana, Ohio, and Nebraska. Tired of traveling Ron proudly worked with Clark Construction to remodel the Cheboygan Hospital. Those who knew Ron, knew he loved restoring classic cars and trucks. He will always be remembered as a sharp-witted man who would be there to lend a hand to any friend who needed it.

Celebration of life will take place at a later date.

Those wishing to honor Ron’s memory are asked to make a donation to a charity of your choice.
