Ronald G. Crass, age 82, of Tomahawk, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 31, 2022 at Marshfield Hospital.
Ron was born on July 20, 1939 in Tomahawk to Arthur and Veronica (Young) Crass. He was married on February 20, 1965 to Jeanie Beutner in Tomahawk. In 1965, the family moved to Schofield. Ron worked at Haupt Contract Carriers. They purchased and operated G&R Transport, Inc. for 25 years. In 1996, Ron retired and he and Jeanie moved back home to Tomahawk. There wasn’t a day that went by that they didn’t say how thankful they were to have moved back home.
Ron is survived by his wife of nearly 57 years – Jeanie Crass of Tomahawk and children – Dawn Crass, Kay (Rod) Berg, Kris Leggett & John (Carrie) Crass all of Tomahawk. He is further survived by six grandchildren – Alison Leggett, Annie (Ole) Hanson, Bradley (Allison) Jarvensivu, Cole Leggett, Bethany Berg & Meagan Berg; two sisters – Sherry Thompson & Carol Jarvensivu; his in-laws – Bernie Beutner, George (Loretta) Beutner, Marge Crass & Joe Beutner; sister-in-law – Georgeanne Crass; and brother-in-law – Cliff Stieber.

Ron never stopped “working”. He enjoyed his garden, raising chickens and turkeys, farming, logging, woodworking, beekeeping, making maple syrup, hunting and time spent with the gang at the hunting shack. His biggest enjoyment and pride were his four children and his six grandchildren.
