Ron was born September 12, 1933 in La Crosse to Raymond and Valeria (Sobzak) Osweiler. He was the fourth of five children. Ron was a man of great dedication to his Roman Catholic faith, holding his dear Lord as the priority in his life. Attending daily Mass throughout his life was a routine he embraced as a gift.
