Ronald Matta Obituary
Ronald J. Matta, age 88, passed away peacefully with his wife Susan by his side at their home in Mundelein, IL on December 21, 2017. He was born on November 5, 1929 in Lakewood, Ohio to John and Anna Matta. He was preceded in death by his parents, his first wife Betty, and his son James. Ron lived a long, full life as a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was president and owner of Selpro Co. for 40 years before retiring. He was an avid sports fan, cheering on the Cubs to their World Series win. He is survived by his wife Susan, daughter Sherrill (Van) Miller, sons Jerry and Jeffrey; grandchildren Tim (Jenna), Jonathan (Erin), Megan (Josh) Shaw, Liz (Nick) Dome, Jay (Annie) Miller, Michael and Melanie; 12 great-grandchildren; stepdaughter Kathy (Glen) Barklow, stepson Mike Voss and 3 step grandchildren, Kate and Sarah Barklow and Evan Voss. Ron's expressed wishes were that there be no funeral service; however, there will be a celebration of his life after the first of the year. In lieu of flowers or a memorial, please consider a random act of kindness in memory of Ron. Arrangements entrusted by family to Gurnee Salata Funeral Home, 4190 Old Grand Avenue, Gurnee, IL.
