Ron was born August 2, 1937 in St. Paul to the late William and Helen (Blossom) Feirtag. In 1968, Ron purchased the Flambeau River Lodge in Ladysmith and operated it for 8 years. In 1991 he moved to Hayward and married Marie Riegel at the Spider Lake Church. They spent their winters in Florida, giving Ron time to enjoy his passions of traveling, fishing, spending time on the beach with his wife. Ron loved meeting and talking with new people, sharing his great sense of humor and his love of life. In 1993 they moved to Barnes and were the owners of Marie's Laker Lounge for 17 years. He was a sharp individual who played a mean game of cribbage. He could remember not just a name but what drink someone ordered and when they would come in, he'd have it ready by the time they sat down.
