Obituary

Ronald George Barrett, age 74, a resident of Cincinnati, OH, passed away on November 4, 2021.

Those left to cherish his memory include life partner, Deborah Wissman; daughter, Rebecca Luckenbach; grandchildren, Gavin Luckenbach, Gabrielle Luckenbach, and Grayson Luckenbach; sister, Charlotte Riggs (Junior); and his former spouse, Juanita Barrett.

Born February 22, 1947, in Cincinnati, OH to the late Chester and Opal Barrett. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by siblings, Wayne Barrett, Junior Barrett, Chuck Barrett, and Don Barrett.

Ron served our country in the United States Navy during Vietnam and did so proudly. When he returned from the Navy, he learned the trade of meat cutting and pursued to open his own butcher shop in Anderson. Later in life he decided to begin his adventure in the landscaping business and operating his own lawn and landscape company around the Tri State area. He had a green thumb and had a passion for growing plants and creating gardens. 

During the 1970's he was passionate about health and fitness and began heavy weightlifting and competed and won in dozens of body building titles, including Mr. Cincinnati, Mr. Ohio, and Mr. Midwest America.

Another passion Ron enjoyed was art. He illustrated dozens of drawings and store front window designs for local businesses. He also enjoyed painting especially with ceramics. After his retirement he created objects of art from found relics of nature which he enjoyed creating and giving away to friends and admirers as gifts. 

Ron had a heart of gold and went out of his way to ensure his family was happy. He especially loved spending time with his grandchildren. He included his grandchildren in all activities at home and away on vacation. He has left behind a legacy for his family and especially his grandchildren to follow.

In keeping with Ron's final wishes he was cremated. 

There will be a gathering for family and friends to fellowship and remember Ron on Saturday, November 27, 2021, at Spring Grove Funeral Home, 4389 Spring Grove Ave, beginning at 10 AM and lasting until 11:30 where at that time a short ceremony will be conducted.
