Mr. Ronald L. Hassler, age 80 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Saturday, January 12, 2019 at home surrounded by his family.

Ron was born February 1, 1938 in Cooperhill, Mo. a son of Basil and Nancy (Branson) Hassler.

He was married on August 24, 1957 in Hernando, Mississippi to Joan M. Coleman who survives in the home. Joan was the center of Ron’s life and he showed his love for her by always putting her first in everything he did. He always said, “Whatever Mom wants,”.

A lifelong resident of the central Missouri area, Ron was a 1956 graduate of Linn High School in Linn, Mo.

He was employed with the Missouri Department of Conservation for thirty-six years prior to his retirement in 1995. He started working in the mail room and then worked his way to becoming a Draftsman by using his attention to detail and strong work ethic. He thoroughly enjoyed that work and retired as the Drafting Supervisor with the Conservation. Previously, Ron had been employed with the Oberman Manufacturing Company, which is where he met his wife.

Ron cherished his time with family and always supported them. No matter what the activity or event, he was always there coaching, cheering them on from the stands or being their own personal paparazzi. He loved being outdoors with them; especially camping, fishing, and hunting. He was the one that taught many of them to appreciate the outdoors. During his retirement, Ron and Joan traveled in their R.V. across the country. He was talented when it came to woodworking and prided himself in the furniture he made for family and friends.

One of his other loves was pitching horseshoes. Ron traveled the country competing in tournaments and even took third place in the world tournament one year in Wisconsin. He was recently inducted into the Missouri Horseshoe Pitchers Hall of Fame and was a charter member of the Missouri Horseshoe Pitcher’s Association.

Ron will be remembered for his strong work ethic, caring heart and integrity. He always strived for perfection in everything he did, saying, “if you ever have to say that’s good enough, it isn’t.”

Survivors include: his wife of almost 62 years, Joan Hassler; four children, Connie Noble of Holts Summit, Mo., Teresa Regalado and her husband Andrew of Holts Summit, Mo., Dawn Ellis of Jefferson City, Mo., and Bruce Hassler and his wife Heather of Jefferson City, Mo.; twelve grandchildren, Shawn Neeley and his wife Sara, Stephanie Fritz and her husband Andrew, Kaitlyn Milne and her husband Travis, Justin Noble, Amber Ellis, Heather Hart and her husband Jeremy, Ashlee Morfeld and her husband Eric, Holly Hassler, Jennifer Hassler, Jordan Grefrath, Katie Grefrath, and Bridget Menteer and her husband Russ; and ten great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, five brothers, one sister, and one son-in-law, Chuck Noble.

Visitation will be at Freeman Mortuary from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m. Thursday, January 17, 2019.

Funeral services will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. Friday, January 18, 2019 in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend Shane Crum officiating. Graveside services and entombment will be held in the Mausoleum of Resurrection Cemetery.
