Chittenango Rotary Club suffered a great loss this week with the passing of our friend Ronald Dean Sr.
Ron was a longtime member of the club, a past-president, member of the board of directors and a Paul Harris fellow. He was a driving force in many of the club's service projects, including the acquisition of our new Chuckwagon, the woodshop at Clear Path for Veterans, renovations at Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum and so much more. Ron was the chair of the Annual Lobsterfest for multiple years.
If there was a project, Ron was sure to be found in the middle of it. We will greatly miss his expertise, his commitment to the club and community, his smile, his sense of humor and his storytelling.
The family has asked for donations in his name to be directed to Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum and Chittenango Rotary Club. Checks for Rotary can be sent to: Chittenango Rotary, PO Box 335, Chittenango, NY 13037.
