Ronny E. Knisley

Ronny E. Knisley, December 13, 1939 – April 4, 2021

Ronny passed away peacefully on Easter Sunday. Ronny was a lifetime resident of Washington Court House. Ronny graduated from Washington High School in 1957 and shortly after joined the National Guard where he retired as a Lieutenant.

As a young man, he learned to work hard at his parent's Pontiac Dealership when he wasn’t serving at the National Guard. His hard work was only matched by his determination to get finished with his work for the day so he could go play basketball in his younger years or golf later in life. After his dad retired and sold the family automobile dealership, Ronny opened Knisley’s Collison Repair.

He loved golf, basketball, socializing with friends, spending time with his grandkids, and chewing on an unlit cigar.

His infectious laugh and fun-loving spirit will be missed by all. He is preceded in death by parents, Loren Jack Knisley and Juanita Mae Knisley; and his first wife, Gail Detweiler Knisley.

Ronny is survived by loving wife, Sharon Knisley, children; Brent (Missi) Knisley, and Brad Knisley; and two grandchildren; Loren and Max Knisley, and step-daughter Stephanie Creech, whom he referred to as a daughter.

At Ronny’s request, no services will be held- donations in Ronny’s name may be sent to the Neuroscience Center, 3535 Olentangy River Rd., Columbus, OH 43214.

Porter-Tidd Funeral Home, 331 W. Main Street, Mount Sterling, OH, 43143 assisted the Knisley family.
