Ronald A. Breitkreutz, 50

Ronald A. “Ron” Breitkreutz, 50, of Iron Ridge, died unexpectedly due to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on May 21, 2012.

He was born in Hartford on Feb. 11, 1962, the son of Leander and Lois (nee Vorpahl) Breitkreutz. Ron graduated from Hartford High School class of 1980. He settled in Iron Ridge. Ron was employed as a welder at Midas International and Stamping for more than 10 years, currently working at Helgesen Industries.

His love of riding his motorcycle was surpassed by spending time with his friends and family, especially his children. When it came to collecting and fixing engines, Ron loved to tinker out in his shop. His sense of humor will be missed. Ron was always giving of himself generously, whether it was financial, emotional or physical.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

Ron is survived by his son Ron “RJ” (fiancée Kaylea Sponholz) Breitkreutz of Hartford, his daughter Kelly Breitkreutz of Hartford and his siblings Chris (Thad) Kluck of Greenville, Betty Breitkreutz of Grafton, Richard (Christine) Breitkreutz of Hartford, Leland (Nancy) Breitkreutz of Iowa, William Breitkreutz of Hartford, and Steven Breitkreutz of Hartford. Further survived by aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
