CLEVELAND — Ronald K. Dalin Sr., age 72, a resident of Ashtabula, Ohio, passed away after a long battle with cancer, Sunday, March 10, 2013, at UH-Case Medical Center, Cleveland, with his family at his bedside.
Ronald was born to Alta Jane (Richmond) and John Arvid Dalin on Feb. 25, 1941. He graduated from Ashtabula High School and in 1960, he married his loving wife in Geneva.
