Ronald D Slingsby was born January 26th, 1947, in Broken Bow Nebraska. Ron enjoyed life to the fullest as husband, dad, grandad, great-grandad, friend, mentor, Golden Glove boxer, motocross racer, and blue-collar worker.
He was proud to be from Nebraska. He is our hero and a giant in our eyes. He disciplined us, loved us, and supported us. He was not a man who straddled the fence in any of his dealings. We believe we had the best dad God could have ever given us.
He departed this life on September 28th, 2021, at Methodist Hospital in Omaha NE after complications from the China virus.
He is survived by the mother of his children, Sally Slingsby, Grayson, KY, his children David (Michelle), Arvada CO, Amy Young, Lawrenceburg, TN, Robert (Dawn), Cantonment, FL, Sheila (Jeremy) Witter, Grayson, KY, grandchildren Elliott (Ashley), Zachary and Kathryn Young, TN, Ansley Slingsby, FL, Gilbert, Amos, Isaac, and Melvin Witter, KY and great granddaughter, Avery Young, TN. Longtime friends Rod Larson and Grant Calleroz.
He is also survived by his siblings, in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Maxine (Scott) Slingsby and one sister.
