Ronald was born in Whittlesey, WI to Albert and Inge Frischman on Feb. 2, 1936. He attended Medford High School, graduating valedictorian in 1954. He went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Valparaiso University. After serving his country for two years, he was honorably discharged from the U. S. Army. During this time, he married Barbara Howell, from Eden New York. Ron and Barb moved to Le Sueur, Minnesota where he began his 30 year employment career at The Green Giant Company. There they raised their two sons, Jay and Craig.

After Barb’s sudden death in 1994 (car accident), Ron married Ronna (Warner) Gray, of Wisconsin Rapids in 1997. They were happily married until Ronna passed away from cancer in 2005. And in 2006, Ron married Janice Schrage of Wisconsin Rapids, and were together until her passing in 2015.

Whether it was in Le Sueur or Glencoe Minnesota or Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin Ron always wanted to be active in helping his community including serving as President of the local Jaycee Chapter, President of the local Lions Chapter, President of the church council at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Le Sueur, volunteer EMT, and well as many other volunteer positions.

Ronald is survived by his two sons Jay (Jeanne), Craig (Connie); grandsons James and Joseph, sister Bernita Neumann, brother Leon Frischman, and many nieces, nephews, stepchildren, and other relatives and friends.
