ERIE, Pa. — Ronald K. Dolan, age 68, of Edinboro, Pa., passed away Tuesday, April 23, 2013, at St. Vincent Medical Center.

He was born on Nov. 17, 1944, in Flint, Mich., a son of the late Ronald Q. and Betty Jean Whetson Dolan.

Ronald had a huge, loving heart. Others may have taken advantage of his caring and giving nature, but that never stopped him from helping others. He just kept giving and giving. Sure, he may have ranted and raved at times, but that could not hide the love that beat inside of him.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one sister, Pamela Jean Dolan-Boggs; and one brother, Dr. Gerald K. Dolan.

Ronald is survived by many nieces and nephews and his friend and caregiver, Sam Wager.

Services and burial are private.

Funeral arrangements are made by the RUSSELL C. SCHMIDT AND SON FUNERAL HOME, INC., 5000 Wattsburg Road, Erie, Pa. Please visit to sign the Book of Memories. Obituary and condolences at
