Ronald Callison

April 22, 1939 — March 22, 2017

Ronald L. Callison, age 77 of rural Alexandria, MO, passed away early Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at the Clark Co. Nursing Home in Kahoka where he had been a resident since September.

Ronald was born April 22, 1939 in Revere, MO, a son of Joseph "Clark" and Gertrude Shuler Callison.

He graduated from Kahoka High School in 1957. On April 9, 1961 he was united in marriage to Virginia L. Egley at the Messiah Lutheran Church in Keokuk.

Survivors include his wife, Virginia, of the home; one son, Kevin L. Callison of rural Alexandria; a grandson; Tyler C. Callison of rural Alexandria; one sister, Janet (Dick) Gregory of Fort Madison, IA; a niece and her family, Renota (Ray) Chambers of Packwood, IA; as well as other relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Clark and Gertrude Callison; in-laws, Herbert and Cleta Egley; a brother in infancy; and brother-in-law, Harold Egley.

Ronald farmed and raised livestock all of his life. In addition, he worked for the Missouri State Hwy. Department in the winter months pushing snow at night and also for the Kahoka Sale Barn.

Ronald was a member of the Messiah Lutheran Church in Keokuk and former board member for the Clark Co. Farm Bureau, Clark County Rural Fire Dept., and Frazee Cemetery.

He loved working on the farm and was an Allis Chalmers fan. He never knew a stranger and enjoyed visits with whomever he met, particularly his friends at Wiss and Wiss and with their cousins. As his legs failed him, he enjoyed his Kabota which allowed him to get out and move around the farm more.

Funeral services were held Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka with Rev. Lester Dumer officiating. Congregational music included: "How Great Thou Art" and "Amazing Grace". Pallbearers were: Ray Chambers, Scott Valendy, Keith Menne, Steve Brammer, Leroy Wolfmeyer and Jeff Behnke. Burial followed in the Frazee Cemetery.

Family received friends Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until time of services.
