Begalke, Ronald  
Ronald E. Begalke Ron Begalke, age 80 of Plymouth, passed away unexpectedly after a very brief illness at Sheboygan Aurora Medical center on February 25, 2015. He was surrounded by a loving family, and passed peacefully into his Savior's arms. He is now experiencing the Glory of Heaven, and being reacquainted with loved ones, especially his dear wife Karen who left us three years ago. Ron was born in Sheboygan to the late Roy and Adela Grupe Begalke on September 22, 1934. He attended St. Paul Lutheran School and graduated from North High School in 1953. He met the love of his life, Karen, while working at the Kohler Company in 1954. He proudly served in the US Military stationed in Germany, and returned and married Karen on February 2, 1957, beginning a 54 year marriage blessed with love, family, fun and happiness. Ron began his career as an accountant with Lester Graef and Company in Sheboygan. He worked on the Sargento account from the late 50's until 1968, when he was hired as Treasurer. He spent the rest of his career at Sargento helping it to grow as its Executive Vice President & Chief Operations Officer. He retired in 1993 and was later the recipient of the very first Founder's ring. It was a "great ride" which resulted in a satisfying career, great opportunities, lasting friends, and most importantly a relationship with the entire Gentine family, which words cannot describe. Karen and Ron have three loving sons and three wonderful daughter-in-laws: David & Joanie of Sheboygan, Mark and Mellonie of Troy, MT, and Kurt and Carrie of Oconomowoc. Ron was blessed with eight grandchildren who he loved and was an important part in each of their lives. He was always there for them: Dan and Lauren, Katherine, MaryBeth and Steve Bongard, Brian, Brynne, Claire, Moxely, and Adeline. He also was blessed with two great grandchildren, Natalie and Ben Begalke, children of Dan & Lauren. Ron is survived by a sister-in-law, Marion, dear cousins, nieces and nephews, all of whom Ron had special relationships with. Ron was truly an influence on their lives and we all will miss him terribly. Ron was preceded in death by his parents, wife Karen, a brother Elroy, and a sister, Delores Messner. Besides his family, Ron enjoyed hunting, fishing, tennis, and traveling with Karen and the entire family. An Alaskan family trip to celebrate their 50th anniversary was certainly a highlight. He taught us how to gracefully go on after losing the love of his life, and picked up where Karen left off- cooking her recipes and hosting friends. Some of his most special moments and times were spent in Northern Wisconsin at their beloved cottage "Finally Found". Since 1983 it has been the family's piece of heaven on earth. It really will never be the same now. Ron was an active member and leader of his church, St. John Lutheran in Plymouth, chairing many organizations over the years. He was a member of the Plymouth Lions Club (he never missed serving corn and cheese at the County Fair) and was recently honored with the Lifetime Membership Award. His love of singing, community involvement and good will led to the birth of the Sergeant SECAP singers. Ron actively served on numerous boards in the community over the years. Ron was truly regarded as a kind and wonderful man. His honesty, integrity and hard work were an inspiration to us all. He was genuinely liked by so many because he took the time to talk with people and listen to their story. He so enjoyed coffee with friends, breakfast with church members, and his daily trips to Piggly Wiggly, talking with one and all. He will be missed by his church family, his Sargento family, the community and by his family most of all. Ron's funeral will be held at 11:00 on Monday March 2, at St. John Lutheran Church in Plymouth. Pastor Nathan Meador will officiate. Visitation will be at Schneider Funeral Home & Life Tributes in Plymouth from 4-7 on Sunday, and 9am to the time of services at Church on Monday. In lieu of flowers memorials have been established for St. John Lutheran Church, and Sheboygan Lutheran High School. The family extends sincere thanks to the caring staff at Memorial Hospital, especially Drs. Brian Obrochta and Phillip DeTrana. The outpouring of support and love from family friends has been overwhelming, we are so grateful. "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die." John 11:25, 26
