Ronald O. Stonestreet, 88, died Jan. 25, 2018, in Montrose, Colo.

He was born March 10, 1930, in Hutchinson to Dale Grossman Stonestreet and Irene Wells Stonestreet.

He graduated from Cullison High School in 1948. He lived and farmed in Pratt, Haskell and Seward counties. He moved to Garden City in 1981 and continued farming until retiring in 1992.

He later married Marie Jenkins on Jan. 5, 1999. She survives.

He loved nature and enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets while farming and the beauty of the San Juan Mountains. He was an avid golfer and a KU basketball fan. His keen sense of humor was a blessing to his family and friends, but most of all, he will be remembered as a true gentleman.
