Ron is my ex- son-in-law. He was disabled and when he and my daughter split, he moved in with his sister. We recently received notice that Ron had passed under horrible conditions and that his sister and nephew were charged (but not yet convicted) with abuse and neglect of a disabled person causing death.

In the meantime, with no other family to make arrangements, Ron was cremated and sits unclaimed at the funeral home.
We have worked with the funeral home and others and made arrangements to give Ron the respectable final resting place that all people deserve. We’ve started this gofundme to defray the cost.
We thank all who donate or share. RIP Ronald Eugene Blankenship, July 14, 1954 – August 20, 2018.
