Born July 6, 1935 to Olen and Gladys Brattin. Ron grew up in the hollers in Southern Missouri, where he was enriched with a love for hunting, fishing, farming, and baseball. He moved to Kansas City where he cultivated a life full of family and success alongside the love of his life Nell. Ron will be fondly remembered as a man who embodied doing the right thing under any circumstance and valued taking a risk to go after his dreams. In life, family, and business he grew his passions into legacy. How lucky are we to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
