In Memory of

Ronald Ray Brattin

July 6, 1935 - July 13, 2019


Ronald Brattin, age 84, passed in peace Saturday, July 13, 2019. Preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Nell, daughter Rhonda, brother Howard, and sisters Vineta and Debbie. Loving father of Greg (Patti) Brattin, Vicki (Fred) Sheets, Rick (Edie) Brattin, and Susie (Ray) Key. Brother of Kenny, Lester, Olena, Christine, Gary, and Mark. Proud grandfather to 52 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Honored friend to all that were blessed to have their paths meet.

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.

A funeral service is scheduled for 2:00 PM on Friday, July 19, 2019 at Langsford Funeral Home in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. A visitation will be one hour prior to the service.

My family lived across from Ron and Nell Brattin for 10 years. They were the most honest down to earth people I’ve ever met. Their house was always full of family and friends. There was always a coffee pot going and food to eat in case someone dropped by. They loved and respected each other and shared responsibilities in their successful family business Brattin Drywall. They loved their kids and were all about family. Although I have not seen them often after our move from the Douglas neighborhood I remember them with love. I will always consider them as part of my extended family. Their children also as they babysit my kids and taught them how to ride a bike and tie their shoes and who knows how many more things I never knew about. They had a real impact on myself and my family and I am thankful to them all for their love and friendship.

So sorry for your Loss! Our Prayers are with the Brattin Family!
Janet Hinton Berry, Mary Nell Hinton and Family
