Ronald O. Knispel, age 80, beloved husband to Dorothy, loving father to Mary and devoted grandfather to Shelby, died on Tuesday, October 22, 2013. He was born in Milwaukee on July 2, 1933. Ron will be fondly remembered by his family, including many nieces and nephews and his special son-in-law, Bob.

After serving in the army during the Korean Conflict, Ron completed fire research at Forest Products Laboratory for 31 years. Once he retired he worked at Stoughton Hospital and with the school children, many who called him "Ronaldo."

A private service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Agrace HospiceCare Inc., 5395 E. Cheryl Parkway, Fitchburg, WI, 53711. The family wishes to express their gratitude for the exceptional care provided by Agrace HospiceCare.

Until we meet again. Love, Dorothy
