My brother in law Ron Schoen of Indianapolis passed away unexpectedly Monday afternoon in New Orleans. He was there with a group from his church doing a build for Habitat for Humanity. I don’t think I’ve known a more giving person. Ron was happiest when he was helping some one else. It was a life long habit of his. He spent countless hours caring for his invalid mother. He was a pillar of support for his wife Nancy, my sister. He was always there to help out their kids with cars, houses, and emotional and financial needs. He was a lifetime member of Downey Avenue Christian Church were he served in many capacities, giving unselfishly uncountable hours of his time. When he retired, he did not take advantage of the extra time to play golf, go fishing, or any of the things many people find to do. Ron was thrilled to have the time to travel to New Orleans and help people in need. I remember how happy he was recently when he purchased a van to be able to haul people and tools to help people in New Orleans. He will be missed; he did his part to make this world a better place.
