Ronald Martin Hirschenberger

Saginaw, Michigan

Ronald Martin Hirschenberger passed away on Friday, May 21, 2021 at his home with his family at his side. Age 73 years. The son of the late Martin and Alberta (Schulte) Hirschenberger, Ron was born on September 28, 1947 in Saginaw, Michigan. Ron married Margaret M. (Slodowski) LaFave on Feb. 10, 2003. She survives him. He graduated from Holy Rosary High School in 1965, where he excelled in both football and basketball (including playing All State Basketball his senior year.) Ron joined the Army Reserves (serving as MP) after High School and is a proud veteran of the Army Reserves. He worked at Eaton Corp for five years, also co-owned Line Striping Services, and a Foreman at General Motors, retiring after 37 years. Ron was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus Council #4232 for over 50 years. He was also a member of the Pulaski Club and one of his most proud membership was with the NCOA #357 (Non-Commission Officer Association) and volunteered time for fundraisers. Some of Ron’s favorite pastimes included spending time with his wife and family on Lake Mitchell, (especially participating in the Hershey Olympics), fishing on his Lund fishing boat and later, on the pontoon. Ron enjoyed golfing with his brother and son on the K of C Golf League and playing cards with family, including frequent card games with good friends, Phil and Kathy McGrandy, Bob and Jackie Richards and Don and Joyce Zolinski. Also, helping with fish fries and burger nights at the K of C, as well as playing poker with the guys at both Pulaski and K of C Halls, hanging out and hunting with his brother, family and deer hunting friends at the deer camp, travelling to Las Vegas yearly with his wife, Margie, watching and cheering on his grandchildren at their school events and activities and one of his most proud moments was bear hunting and having the opportunity to finally “bag a bear”, which is still proudly hanging.

Surviving besides his wife Margie are one son and one daughter, Matthew (Kristy) Hirschenberger and Michelle (Mark) Kempf; his five grandchildren, Payton, Garrett and Riley Hirschenberger and Sarah and Rachel Kempf; his four step-children, Sherry Annee, Brian (Brooke) LaFave, Stacey (Dave) Ward and Julie LaFave; eight step-grandchildren, Alex LaFave, Anthony Annee, Merek and Watson LaFave, Walden Raddell, Kendal, Karli and Ava Ward; two sisters, Eileen (Dan) Uram and Lois (Charles) Vik; one sister-in-law, Joan (Joe Sienko) Hirschenberger; sisters-in-law, Marie (Ted) Herzog and Barb Slodowski; several nieces and nephews. Ron was preceded in death by his brother, Dale Hirschenberger and sister-in-law, Joan Rossio.
