Ronald G. Wine, age 80, of Warren Michigan passed away January 17, 2012. Eileen, his wife of 61 years, was at his side. His father and mother, Frank and Dorthea Wine, sister Marilyn and brother Ray preceded him in death. His wife Eileen, his children Lorie, Cherie, Kevin and Colleen, his brother Jerry, 11 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren survive him.

During his 23-year tenure at TRW he received several state awards for his work reducing the environmental impact of sanitary and industrial waste. He was very active in the community and enjoyed his time as a member of his church’s Usher Club, Assistant Scout Master for Troop 1485 and delivering Meals on Wheels. Ron also enjoyed 22 years officiating high school football, basketball and baseball in Macomb, St. Clair and Oakland Counties. When he retired from officiating, he started working the game clocks for Warren and Warren Mott high schools and continued to do so for 35 years. When he “retired” in 2009, Warren Mott presented him with a plaque “In Appreciation for 35 years of Dedicated Service to the Athletic Department”as well as a game ball signed by the coaches and team members.

    Dear Colleen,

    I just found about Mr. Wine’s death and of course have prayed for his soul and for the comfort of his family, and look forward to continuing to do so.

    In the Risen Christ,
