Ronald Vernon, age 75, of Idlewild (formerly of Waterford), passed away on Saturday, May 13, 2023 at Meceola Currie Comfort Home in Reed City, after a courageous battle with cirrhosis of the liver. He was the son of Lyle Melvin Vernon and Lulu Mae (McMichael) Corlette.

Ron retired from GM after thirty years and relocated to Idlewild, where he enjoyed watching Tiger baseball in his Mancave and playing cards with family and friends. His endearing smile and sassy nature will be missed by all.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lyle M. Vernon and Lulu Mae Corlette; brother, Lyle Vernon Jr.; sister, Edith Wamphler; two sons, Ronald “Ronnie” Vernon and Michael Bosquez; and grandson, Bobby Bosquez.

Surviving are his loving wife of thirty two years, Sharon; a sister, Mary (Andy) Adams; daughters, Wendy (David) Conklin, Debbie (Brenda) Vernon-Cain, and Jennifer Vernon; a son, Bob Bosquez; grandchildren, Brad and Jake Conklin, Ella Grubb, Samantha (Matthew) Leeper, and Billy (Sarah) Bosquez; and ten great-grandchildren.

Honoring his wishes, a memorial celebration for family and close friends will take place from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 16, 2023 at Silver Lake Golf Club (2602 W. Walton Blvd, Waterford, Michigan).
