BRISBIN - Ronald C. Natalie, 77, of Brisbin, passed away Saturday, Jan. 16, 2021 at his residence.

Born April 16, 1943 in Philipsburg, he was the son of the late Frank and Marie (Sidorick) Natalie.

Ron attended the Brisbin Baptist Church.

He was a member of the Houtzdale American Legion Social Club, the Houtzdale Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 521, the Lithuanian Club of Osceola Mills and the Knight Booster Club where he was received the Super Booster Award.

Ron worked as a welder his entire life. He owned and operated Will Fit Welding for 40 years.

He enjoyed fishing, boating, going to hunting camp with his sons, sons-in-law, and grandsons. He loved riding four wheelers at camp and his morning trip to Fuel On for coffee, but his greatest joy was spending time with his family.

On Feb. 25, 1961, he married Donna (Anderson) Natalie, who survives at home.

Surviving are his four children, Ronald (Rhonda) Natalie of Allport, Michele (Ed) Jones of Houtzdale, Tonya (John) Lewis of Houtzdale and Jamie (Kristen) Natalie of Brisbin; ten grandchildren, Sarah (Thad) Walstrom, Megan (Andres) Fallon, Nathan (Gina) Jones, Derick (Kelli) Jones, Mallery Jones, Tiffany (Randy) Lewis, John Robert (Ronia) Lewis, Ella, Henry and Marie Rose Natalie.

Also surviving are 11 great grandchildren, Charlie and Natalia Fallon, Hutch and Hattie Jones, Reese and Lylah Jones, Kendra Lewis, Kelsea Roberts, Jacob and Tyler Lewis; along with a brother, John (Nancy) Natalie of Brisbin; and three sisters, Jeanne Papol of N.Y., Vera Turner of Clearfield, Marie Michaels of N.Y.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Preceding him in death were his parents; a granddaughter Rebecca Natalie; and a brother Emanuel (Sonny) Natalie.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no public visitation or service.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date.

Interment will be in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery, Brisbin.

Ron was a great guy, if you needed help with something... ask Ron, he'd help you out if he could. We are so sorry for your loss.

I didn't know Ron well, but I do know his son. I will miss talking with Ron in the morning before I head to work. Every morning when I ran into him, I knew I was going to hear something funny. Once he knew that I worked with his son, he made sure to pick on me on a daily basis. I was told that if Ron picked on you that meant he liked you. Thank you for the short time that I knew you Ron. Rest in peace and enjoy your eternal life in Heaven.
