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.
