Ronald LeRoy Hisler

Ronald LeRoy Hisler, age 89, of Charlotte, left us peacefully on Sunday, October 15, surrounded by his family. He was born August 15, 1934, to Henry and Thelma (Sebastion) Hisler and was raised on the family farm. He graduated from Olivet High School with the Class of 1952. On December 21, 1952, he married Nyla Ross at the Olivet Congregational Church. Ron was a lifetime farmer who was passionate about his work. He served his community in many different capacities but was most proud of his involvement in the Brookfield United Methodist Church, Brookfield Masonic Lodge, and the Eaton County Shrine Club. He also served on the Olivet School Board for many years. In his spare-time he enjoyed hunting, traveling, and spending winters in Florida. Some of their most memorable trips were to Yellowstone, Australia, Hawaii, and Panama. Ron and Nyla also took all of their children on two Alaskan vacations, a west coast cruise, and a color cruise on the east coast. Above all Ron cherished his family and loved each and every one of them dearly.

He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Nyla; brother, Rodger (Janice) Hisler; children, Debbi (Roger) Quada, Craig (Cindy) Hisler, Tammy (Paul) Wolf, Rhonda (John) Geething; grandchildren, Culley Bunker, Mindy LaFay, Melissa Bremmer, Michelle Wolf, Amanda Robinson, Terran Myers; and 16 great-grandchildren.
