Ronald L. Spiegelberg

July 25, 1939 ~ June 3, 2020 (age 80)


Ronald L Spiegelberg, 80 and lifelong resident of  Oberlin passed on June 3, 2020 at Welcome Nursing Home under the care of Mercy New Life Hospice. 

Born the first son of a farmer, spent countless hours in the fields north of Oberlin. Avid and talented athlete, was a recognized member of the Oberlin Indians football team next to his brother, Alan, where he played both ways and only missed 2 plays during his 4 year letterman career due to getting "his bell rung." 

He belonged to many groups throughout the years including the Snow Angels Snowmobile Club and active in slow pitch softball in the area. 

Ron had many jobs in the manufacturing industry and retired from Spiegelberg Manufacturing in          2005 and spent many years as a snowbird in Florida….in a house on a golf course.

He spent many hours outside as he always had a well manicured lawn and loved to play golf with many hole-in-ones. You could always find him at an auction making a deal as his barns are filled with all of his treasures. 

Preceded in death by his wife, Shirley Spiegelberg, his parents Russell and Violet Spiegelberg, brother Alan Spiegelberg and grandson, Joshua Byers.

Survivors include daughters Heidi (Scott) Byers and Heather (Erik) Overly, brother Gary (Marcia) Spiegelberg and grandson Nicholas Byers.

Family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to Welcome Nursing Home and Mercy New LIfe Hospice for the excellent care he received while under their care.

Per his wishes, a private service will be held at a later date.  Contributions may be made in his honor to the for Parkinson’s disease research.
