Ronald Rickert was born April 1, 1946 to Roy and Louise (Opp) Rickert in Leon, IA. Ron graduated from Mormon Trail High School.

He raised his family in De Soto, Iowa where he was an auto mechanic for many years. Ron had many hobbies. He enjoyed nature and spending time fishing. He was famous around town for his passion for growing the best tomatoes in town and sharing with his community. He was a stock car enthusiast, where he loved to help his son-in-law work on his cars or just give him his thoughts on the sport. He was known for his regular trips across the street to hang out in the archery shop to get the scoop on the town activity. Ron loved to be around people and spending time with his friends, however, most of all he loved spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren and watching the grand kids sports.

His legacy will continue on in the hearts of his wife, Patricia; daughter, Nicole (Jamie) Morey; son, Clay (Gretchen) Rickert; grandchildren, Devin, Savannah, Liv and Luke; sister, Charlene (Merle) Held; mother-in-law, Barb Williams; sister-in-law, Kay (Dennis) Middlebrook; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
