Ronald D. “Ron” McQuillen

February 19, 1938 ‒ April 24, 2018

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD:  Ronald D. “Ron” McQuillen, age 80, of Mansfield passed away April 24, 2018 into the loving arms of his Savior following a long illness.

He was born February 19, 1938 in North Ridgeville to the late Charles and Mabel (Koppler) McQuillen and was graduated from Ashland High School in 1956.

On September 7, 1957 he married his high school sweetheart, Nancy Hamilton, with whom Ron celebrated 60 years together.

For over 30 years Ron put his heart and soul into his business National Graphic Arts Printing Company in downtown Mansfield.  He was also the owner of Park Avenue Office Supply where Nancy worked along side him.  After three decades he retired from his family run business in 1997.

Ron was a member of the Mansfield Exchange Club and enjoyed many hobbies.  He was an avid bowler with sharp competitive skills that sent him to the ABC Tournament almost every year.  Ron also enjoyed golfing in Florida during retirement, and nothing came between him and his favorite Ohio sports teams,  especially the Ohio State Buckeyes.  A fastidious gardener, he kept the yard and flowerbeds in pristine shape.  Most of all he loved watching his children and grandchildren participate in their sporting events.

He is survived by his wife Nancy McQuillen of Mansfield, three children Steve (Paula Ison) of Worthington, Diane (Alan) Stuart of Aiken, SC, Marcy Schuster of Mansfield; grandchildren Sarah Davis, Andrew Winbigler, Kimberly, Krista and Kelly Roscoe, Kassandra and Kaitlynn Schuster; seven great grandchildren, son-in-law Karl Schuster of Mansfield, Ron’s mother-in-law Pauline Deever of Ashland, and a sister Marilyn Robinson of Bellville.

Friends may call Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 9:30 am to 11 am in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where the funeral service will follow at 11 am.  Pastor Russell Enzor will officiate and burial will follow in Mansfield Memorial Park.

Memorial contributions to Southern Care Hospice may be made at the funeral home.

  • Nancy, Steve, Diane, & Marcy,

    Henry David Thoreau said:

    “We are all sculptors and painters,
    and our material is our own flesh and bones.”

    I think of Ron as an artist who loved life and created a large canvas filled with all colors of the rainbow. His love for his family, friends, and acquaintances, his business acumen, his joy of sports, his love for gardening, and the companionship of family pets, and on, and on, are the bright colors of his life’s canvas. Well done my, friend.
