Ronald S. “Ron” Knier, age 71, the Town of Silver Cliff, WI, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 18, 2022.

Ron was born on March 21, 1951, to August and Betty (Franzmeier) Knier, in Sheboygan. He graduated from Sheboygan South High School. Ron started his working career at Piggly Wiggly as a bagger/stocker at 16 years old and retired as the Meat Manager. In 2009, Ron was united in marriage to Roberta (Boldt) Somers.

Ron was very passionate about the outdoors. He was an avid fisherman and hunter and spent as much time in the woods and on the lake as he could. Ron also enjoyed watching NASCAR and Old Westerns. He traveled a lot with his mother across the US. He also took many hunting and fishing trips to Canada, and always had the best stories to tell. He was a wonderful cook and baker and was always trying new recipes that he found.
