LISBON, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Ronald B. Reeder, 77, of Lisbon, formerly of Newton Falls, passed away peacefully Saturday, January 2, 2021 at Mercy Health St. Elizabeth Boardman Hospital after a long battle with COPD and complications of Covid-19.

After growing up in Elkton, Ohio and graduating from Beaver Local High School, Ron served six years in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam era.
He held many jobs as a truck driver throughout his life, including most recently his retirement from Panera Bread, where he received many driving awards.
Ron was a proud member of the BMW Motorcycle Riding Club and one of his greatest joys was riding across the United States to California to visit his family and seeing the country.
