Ronald David Dossenback Sr.

December 8,1949- July 11, 2023

Ronald David Dossenback Sr.

Mr. Ronald Dossenback Sr., age 73, passed away on July 11, 2023. Ronald was born on December 8, 1949, in Cincinnati, OH to Albert and Dolores Dossenback.

Ronald had a life-long passion for aviation. At an early age, he built and flew model airplanes with his brothers, Ray and Jerry. Upon graduating from Hughes High School in 1967, he entered the US Navy on February 6, 1968, and served as an Aviation Electrician. Unfortunately, while serving in the US Navy, Ron suffered a spinal cord injury, leaving him paralyzed at the young age of twenty. This did not stop Ron from living his best life, however. After returning home from the Navy, he married Karen, and they had three children; Marcy, Ron Jr., and Kelly.

Ron did not let his paraplegia stop him from fulfilling his dreams. He played wheelchair basketball, restored old cars and even built a side car from which he would ride his Harley Davidson. Ron even earned his private pilot’s license and enjoyed many years of flying private airplanes, both with family and friends, and even by himself. He truly was an incredible man who had a passion for life. He was most happy on hot summer days riding his Harley, flying airplanes, and spending time in his garage with friends and family. Later in his life, he became very involved in building and flying remote-controlled airplanes, and even taught as an instructor. He truly enjoyed sharing his passions in life.

Anyone who knew Ron undoubtedly has stories of the impact he had on their lives. He was a mentor to many, and truly an inspiration for all.

Ronald is survived by Marcy Salamone (Daughter), Kelly Dossenback (Son), grandchildren, Brody Dossenback, Bryson Dossenback, Mareya Salamone, Caleb Dossenback, and Mila Dossenback.

He was preceded in death by Ron Dossenback Jr. (Son), Albert Dossenback (Father), Dolores Dossenback (Mother) and brothers Raymond and Jerry Dossenback.

“To Ron; To a great man and one who had the courage of a lion. No more pain, no more wheel chair, no more heartache. Because I know you were a good Christian, I will look for you in the near future at Jesus feet, when i leave this earth. To all of his family, just know that he was a wonderful person and one who loved God and is now no longer suffering. I can see him now dancing around Heaven. This old Navy Veteran loved your Dad and will join him one day in the near future.”
