In Memory of

Ronald E. Ferguson

February 27, 1965 - August 6, 2021


Ronald Ferguson
February 27, 1965 – August 6, 2021
Ronald (“Ron”) Eugene Ferguson, age 56, passed away Friday, August 6, 2021 peacefully at his home in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, after a long, valiant battle with cancer.

He was most passionate about spending time with his family. His interests included grilling, smoking meats, and preparing gourmet meals. Ron loved introducing friends and family to the joys of lake life including tubing, knee-boarding, jet skiing and camping. He was a second-degree black belt in karate. He was an avid fisherman always hoping to catch “the big one”. Ron had a love for classic cars and by his skillful hands he fully restored a 1979 Corvette. He was a masterful skilled contractor operating his own successful remodeling business, but most recently worked for Myers Brothers of Kansas City. His strive for perfection in his craftmanship was demonstrated in his quality of work. Because of his honesty and integrity his clients became friends. Ron was a generous man who selflessly gave his time and skills to assist anyone in need. Ron was a good man, faithful friend, and true hero. He treasured spending time with his beloved granddaughters. What we will miss most is his caring presence, bear hugs, smile and laughter.

Ron is preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Mildred Ferguson. He is survived by his wife, Debbie, his four sons; Donnie (Jenny) of Lenexa, KS; Tyler of Overland Park, KS; Michael of Raytown, MO; Zach of Lee’s Summit, MO; his brother, Mark Ferguson of Kansas City, MO; his sister, Debra O’Hearn (Brian) of Sacramento, CA; his two beloved grandchildren Madeline and Natalie, nieces, nephew, and cousins.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 13, 2021 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Langsford Funeral Home, 115 SW 3rd Street, Lee’s Summit, MO 64063. A reception immediately following will be held at Marina 27 at 22 A Street, Lake Lotawana at Gate 1 at the water’s edge until 5 p.m.

Debbie and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Debbie and family I am very sorry for your loss. I first met Ron while working at Cityside, from there are friendship grew and we began doing side work with each other. From that experience I learned how great Ron truly was as a carpenter but moreover a person. His work was 2nd to none and he had more patience with me then I deserved. We then began working together at Myers Brothers and spent a lot of time together daily and on a few trips we took. I was always in great company and I will very much treasure those memories along with our fishing trips, as those were a blast. I will never forget you Ron.
