Ronald Cornelius Siebeneck
Ronald Cornelius Siebeneck, age 75 of Harpersfield Township passed away Sunday March 22 peacefully in his home from complications of heart disease. He was born on August 4, 1944 in Ottawa, Ohio to Victor and Philomena (Maag) Siebeneck. He graduated from Columbus Grove High School in 1962, and then went on to serve in the United States Army from 1962-1965. On June 28, 1986 he married Terri Ellis, his loving wife of 34 years.
He started his career in banking, real estate sales and most recently a real estate appraiser. He was the proud owner of Siebeneck Appraisal Service for 40 years. He was an active member of his community. In past years he served as Charter President of the Geneva Jaycee's, Harpersfield Township Trustee and zoning board, Chairman of Rotary Polio Plus, President of the March of Dimes for Ashtabula County, and a member of the Knights of Columbus. Ron and his wife Terri were chairmen for the Harpersfield Memorial Day program for several years. He loved playing Santa Claus for the Elk's Club and other community events.
Ron loved gardening, especially caring for his 30 plus rose bushes, reading and traveling. He was always willing to share his wisdom and advice, especially with his children and grandchildren, whom he loved dearly.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and two sisters, Kathy and Joanie.
He is survived by his wife Terri; his children Ronald (Wendi) Siebeneck of Ashtabula; Valarie (Leroy) Derricoatte of Ashtabula; Christian (Karin) Siebeneck of Perry; Kaitlin (Anthony) Chapman of Geneva; his grandchildren Jordan, Marcus, Leah, Alexis, Garrette, Grace and Anthony; 2 great grandchildren with one on the way; brothers, Victor (Sharon) Siebeneck of Indiana, Kenneth (Susan) Siebeneck of Florida; and sisters, Marilyn Bowers of Pennsylvania, and Bonnie Neuer of Arizona.
In light of the nation's current epidemic his family has decided to postpone any public services for everyone's wellbeing. A celebration of Ron's life will be held at a later date.
The family would like to thank all of the nurses and therapists from Care Tenders for their kindness and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in memory to the Geneva Rotary Foundation, PO Box 29, Geneva, OH 44041.

I met Ron when he appraised my house to refinance. After years of trying to reduce my interest rate when the market turned, he listened to my story and made it happen. Big banks wouldn't help me and he was so understanding of my story. He served his community well. Nice man.

I had the privilege of working with Ron and Terri for many many years and I can tell you he and she were the most kindest people to be with day in and day out. Ron always had a smile on his face and you could depend on him for laughter throughout the days and always made me feel a part of their family. I will forever miss him and the enjoyment we had.
