Obituary

Ronald Daniel Finney, age 86, passed away on January 19, 2021, from complications due to COVID-19, in Ocala, Florida. Ron was born in Northville, Michigan to Claude and Gladys Finney. He was the youngest of 11 children. Being the youngest, Ron was very close with many of his nephews and nieces, and enjoyed growing up with them. He was preceded in death by his parents and all his siblings.
A 1952 graduate of Plymouth High School, Ron married the love of his life, Beverly (Eisenhart) in 1956, who was best friends with his niece, Barbara. He was drafted by the Army in 1957, and spent time serving in Germany. When he returned, he continued serving in the Reserves and was called up again during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He served a total of 6 years before being honorably discharged. They raised their two daughters, Kimberly (Don) Kuder and Pamela (Rick) Keels, in Westland, Michigan. Upon retirement from Ford Motor Company, where he worked as an Emission Systems Analyst for 30 years, they retired to Florida. Retirement for Ron, though, meant staying as active as possible. After doing the various things that retirees do, he decided to go back to work after a few years. He became employed at Target, and worked there for 19 years before retiring again, this time for good, but still kept himself as busy as possible, even after suffering a stroke 2 years ago.
Family meant the world to Ron, and to his family, he was their world. He was proud of everyone’s achievements, and was always there for them, lending his support whenever needed. He was a loving grandpa to Jessica (David) McGriff (Kuder), Kaitlyn Kuder, and Nathan Keels, and Daniel Keels. He was the beloved “Grampy” to his three great-grandchildren, Connor, Madelynn and Maverick. Ron was greatly loved by his many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and friends. A private family service was held at Baldwin Brothers Funeral & Cremation Service, in Ocala. A Celebration of Life will be held in Michigan, later this summer. His family requests that memorials/donations be made to the American Heart Association.
Forever loved. Forever Cherished. Forever in our memories. Forever in our hearts.
