Ron (Skeez) Schara was born on Dec. 22, 1959, in Circle, Mont., to Melvin and Ruth (Lokken) Schara. He joined older siblings Dan, Tom, and Marlys.
Ron married Jolene Kavonius and they had three wonderful children: Amber, Kipp and Bryc. He later married Jennifer Patton and got four fabulous step-children in the deal: Keegan, Abbie, Emily and Caleb.
He was definitely a “people person” and always left you grinning from ear to ear. He will always be remembered for his jokes and great sense of humor! He loved his family and his favorite thing to do with them was camping and fishing, or pitch a few horseshoes with his Dad and brother Tom. For many years he was an avid and accomplished bowler traveling the states in tournaments.
Ron passed away on Aug. 15, 2017, at the young age of 57 after an extended illness. He leaves behind his children Amber (Jayson) Emmett, Kipp, Bryc; and step-children Keegan (Stephanie) Mueller, Abbie Nemitz, Emily Mueller (Ryan Lewis) and Caleb Patton; along with six grandchildren Rayne and Kaliber Emmett, Breauna and Carson Schara, Collin Nemitz and Aurora Mueller; as well as his siblings Tom, Dan (Kathy) and Marlys (Bob) Lee.
He was preceded in death by his parents and loving wife Jenny.
There will be a celebration of life held at the New Atlas Bar in Columbus, Mont., on Saturday, Aug. 26, at 2 pm. A potluck with a taco bar will be provided.
