EAST MOLINE-Ronald W. Pustelnik, 77, East Moline, passed away on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at his home. Funeral services are 10 AM Saturday at Christ United Methodist Church, East Moline. Burial is in Riverside Cemetery, Moline. Visitation is 3-7 PM Friday at Van Hoe Funeral Home Ltd., East Moline.

Ron was born on November 21, 1942 in Moline, the son of Anthony and Betty (Baker) Pustelnik. He married Peggy Bucy on August 29, 1964 in Moline. He graduated from UTHS and earned his bachelors and masters degrees from WIU. Ron spent his life in education, beginning his teaching career in Hampton and retiring from UTHS in 1994.

Many of Ron's younger years were spent playing softball, supervising the Butterworth Park Program, running the EM Wrestling Club, and umpiring softball at Northeast Park. He enjoyed hunting for arrowheads, being outdoors, attending UT athletic events, and helping others. He was a member of Christ United Methodist Church in East Moline. Above all, Ron was a devoted family man who made it a point to see his beloved grandkids nearly every day. He unselfishly dedicated his days to bettering the lives of his wife, kids, and grandkids.
