Ronald Henry "Ron" Lensky

Ronald Henry Lensky was born on August 14, 1939 in Detroit, Michigan. He was the only child born from the union of his parents: the late Henry Lensky and the late Valda (Masserant) Lensky. After graduating High School, he furthered his education receiving his Associate Degree in Science.

Ron was a devoted member of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Newport. He was very active with the church and belonged to the St. Charles Dad’s Club. He pursued a career as a sprinkler engineer, working for VanGuard Design Sprinklers and Dynamic Fire Protection, where he worked for many years until retiring in 2015.

Ron was an avid boater who spent countless hours on the water. He was a dedicated member of the Swan Boat Club where he made many lasting friendships. He enjoyed a well- kept yard and made sure everything was meticulously kept.  He was a natural dog lover and enjoyed the company of his four-legged companions: Heidi, Misty and Holly. In his spare time, he enjoyed the outdoors by playing hockey, riding snowmobiles and dabbling in photography. He also looked forward to nights with friends and family playing cards.

His kind heart shown through with everything he did. His parents meant the world to him and he made sure they were well taken care of until their passing. When his health declined, caregivers provided 24-hour care to ensure Ron was well taken care of. His compassionate nature and kind personality are just a few things that will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
