Ronald Edward Mijal

March 7, 1950 — January 22, 2023

Lake Butler

After surviving three commercial plane crashes and a near drowning, God finally saw fit to call Ronald Mijal home on January 22, 2023, in Gainesville, FL. Born March 7, 1950, in Wausau, Wisconsin, Ron graduated from Mosinee High School and then attended the University of Wisconsin Madison. Shortly after high school, Ron joined the United States National Guard. He was an entrepreneur from a young age owning and operating Mijal Concrete Company and later Heartland Gazebo. He loved the water and worked at boat rentals and sailboat and powerboat rentals when living in the Florida Keys.

Over the course of his life, he called Bevent and Wausau in Wisconsin and Key Largo and Worthington Springs in Florida home.

He enjoyed hunting, scuba diving, boating, snorkeling, playing blackjack, listening to and playing polka music on his concertina, taking pictures and sharing with others, making Rum Runners for friends, watching football especially the Green Bay Packers and taking golf cart rides in his neighborhood with his wife and dog, Coco.

He is survived by his wife, Becky M. Mijal; his sons, Kevin J. Mijal, Kris S. Mijal, James R. (April) Wakefield, Geoffrey L. Wakefield; his granddaughters, Maddie Hessey, Lucy and Mickey Wakefield; his father-in-law, Carl J. Rhodes; many brothers and sisters-in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Ceil Mijal; his sister and brother-in-law, Rita and Rene Dupuis; his brother-in-law, Ric Rhodes; and mother-in-law, Ruth Rhodes.

A funeral mass will be held at St. Ladislaus Catholic Church, Bevent, WI, on Monday, February 6, 2023, at 11:00am. The family will receive friends for a visitation beginning at 9:00am. There will be a luncheon provided after the service at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Ladislaus Catholic Church, 173141 WI-153, Hatley, WI 54440.
