Ronald C. Herd, age 72, of Dubuque, Iowa, was called home suddenly at 1:05 p.m., on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, at home. To honor Ron's life, private family services were held. Burial will be in Linwood Cemetery. Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street, is in charge of arrangements.
Ronald was born on December 10, 1943, in Marianna, FL., son of Charles and Vernetta Herd.
Ronald would eventually join the U.S. Army and proudly served his country at several bases around the globe. He would discover his love for golf and traveling during his military journey and would carry those joys through the rest of his civilian life. Ronald had a natural God given ability with numbers which he would put to good use with Mutual of Omaha for over 30 years. Ronald was a compassionate and gentle man who spent his earthly life trying to make the world a better place.
Those left to cherish Ron's memory include
his dear friend of 11 years, Joan Data, Dubuque, IA.
Ron was preceded in death by his parents.
