Ronald Smithley

June 26, 1941 — April 17, 2024

Ronald N. Smithley, a beloved member of the Ligonier community, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on April 17, 2024, in his hometown of Ligonier, Pa. 
 
Throughout his journey, Ronald wore many hats with pride and dedication. He served in the Air Force, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to his country. Ronald had a passion for hunting and fishing, finding solace and joy in the great outdoors.

His selflessness and dedication to these roles left a lasting impact on those around him.
