Ronald Leslie WiitanenX

Born: September 26, 1946

Location: Eben, Michigan

My grandpa, Ronald Leslie Wiitanen, was born in Eben, Michigan on September 26, 1946. One of the challenges in his life was dealing with my grandma being sick with cancer and dying. Luckily, he had the support of his children and family. He worked as a woodshop teacher, an engineer, and a purchaser at Kimberly Clark. He has had a big impact on our family because whenever we need help he comes and helps us. My family and I enjoy spending time with him at his home in Autrain.
