Ronald Edward Edinger


Ronald Edward Edinger, 60, of Honor, passed away unexpectedly on July 5, 2019. Born May 20, 1959 in Frankfort to Otto John and Shirley Ann (Moore) Edinger, Ron was one of five children.
Ron was a Benzie Central Schools graduate, class of 1977, receiving an award at the end of his senior year for never missing one day of school in his entire school career.
He was a mason by trade, learning the skill from a very early age by working alongside his father. He carried on the Edinger masonry legacy, no matter where he resided, and passed along the trade to his sons.
Ron loved traveling the country, often finding himself in the southern states as he had a strong taste for the southern lifestyle. Before returning to his home state, Ron spent many years in South Carolina. He loved gardening, fishing and hunting.
Ron leaves behind his mother, Shirley Ann Edinger; along with siblings, Gladys Edinger, Otto "John" (Julie) Edinger, Sherry Edinger-Goethe and James "Jamie" Edinger. Ron had five children, Melanie Ware, Rone Eugene (Lisa) Edinger, Jonathan Arnold, Jeffrey Allen Edinger and Jimmy Migliara; grandchildren, Chloe McPherson, Conner McPherson, Brandon Edinger, Tori Edinger and Destiny Nicholson; great-grandchildren, Joshua, Marshall and Karen; as well as several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; and many friends.
Ron was preceded in death by his father, Otto John Edinger.
