On Nov. 30, 1968, he married his high school sweetheart, the former Sue Ellen Rozek. He was the proud owner of Club 37 in Milwaukee. Ronald enjoyed spending time with his family especially when they would go fishing up north together. The time he spent behind the plate as a Little League umpire was also very special to him.

He will be missed by his wife of 45 years, Sue Ellen; his children, Brian Lawrence Sr. of Waukesha; and Michelle (Jamie) Strasser of Waukesha. He is also survived by his two grandchildren, Jeremy Dornak Sr. and Brian Lawrence Jr.; great-grandson, Jeremy Dornak Jr.; sister, Roxanne (Curt) Christiansen of Dousman; and his best friends, Eddie and Brenda Usher of Waukesha.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Robert.

The family would like to thank Dr. Omer Afzal, Dr. Brian Nelson, the staff at Manor Care, the Wisconsin Rehab Hospital, Midwest Kidney Dialysis Center in Waukesha and Waukesha Memorial Hospital’s Heart Care Unit for the compassionate care provided for Ron.

Private family services will be held.
