Ronald “Ron” Steven Hettich, age 63, of Woodstock, IL, passed away unexpectedly during a heart procedure on October 6, 2021. He was born May 16, 1958, the youngest of five children, in Chicago, IL to his loving parents, Phillip and Lillian Hettich (née Housing).
Ron worked for K40 Electronics for over 30 years. He was dearly loved by everyone at K40, as well as their dealers.
Ron married Julia Wiel in 1997, and their daughter, Sara, was born in 1998. Ron was the most wonderful husband and father in the world. He adored Julia and Sara, and spent all of his free time with them. They loved him dearly in return, and will miss him forever.
Loved ones will remember Ron as an amazing, wonderful man, who was selfless, generous, and hardworking. He was always in a good mood, and was very forgiving. He never spent money on himself, but lavished everything on his beloved wife and daughter. He loved shopping, decorating his new house, and going out to eat with Julia. He also adored his cats, Florence, Doogie, and Nana, who will miss him very much.
Ron was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Julie Hettich; daughter, Sara Hettich; and siblings, Phil, Carol, Jan, and Patty.
