Obituary for Ronald Shawn McCauley

Ron McCauley, 53, of Clarinda, Iowa, formerly of Ankeny, Iowa entered into peace Monday, March 11, 2019 at his home. A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held at Ritchie Funeral Home 222 East Washington, Clarinda, IA on Saturday, March 23 at 2 pm. There will be visitation at 1 pm prior to the service. Memorials may be directed to Clarinda Regional Health Foundation. Memories and condolences may be shared directly with the family or on our website at www.ritchiefuneralhome.com under Obituaries.

Ron McCauley was born February 4, 1966 in Independence, Iowa to Newell and Janet (Cooper) McCauley. He grew up in Independence and graduated from high school there. After graduation, Ron headed to Buena Vista College where he majored in friends, a lot of fellowship, and a little bit of studying toward a Management Information Systems (MIS) degree. He did graduate much to the joy of his parents. Ron lived many places throughout Iowa with Ankeny and Clarinda being his latest places of home and family.

After college, Ron found gainful employment in the information technology field. His employer for the last five plus years was Clarinda Regional Health Center. Every place Ron worked many of his colleagues became his family. Clarinda Regional Health Center was no different.

One of Ron's greatest joys was his son, Braden. Born November 17, 2005, Braden and Ron both enjoyed sports - watching basketball, football, college and professional - you name it, the two of them enjoyed it. Just this past year (2018), Ron and Braden enjoyed a magical outing to Lambeau Field to watch the Packers play. What a game! What a day! Braden also plays a variety of sports and Ron tried never to miss a game.

Preceding Ron in death were his parents, Newell and Janet McCauley.

Left to miss Ron and to cherish his memory are his son Braden, Ron's brother Mark Scharff (St Louis, Mo), sisters Kelly Stenzhorn (Louisville, KY) and Lisa McCauley (McKinney, TX) , his nieces Abigail and Mia Salazar-McCauley (McKinney, TX), and many other family and wonderful friends who have crossed Ron's path - colleagues, college and high school friends too numerous to mention who have watched out for and celebrated with Ron - and probably worried about him a little bit too.

Life changed on March 11th for those who knew Ron McCauley. He was smart, sarcastic, so very stubborn, and one who cherished and would often share his life of memories old and new. Rest in peace, Ron.
