Peninsula - Rev. Dr. Ronald E. Duer

September 1, 1938 to June 5, 2021

Born in Croswell, MI on a small family farm and raised on the South Side of Chicago, IL, our treasured Husband, Father, Papa and Great Grandpa, was a brilliant light to all whose lives he touched as a Lutheran Pastor & Counselor. His gifts of honest and open counsel, genuine humor, love of life, and language, cultures and history, made him a man of deep and impassioned caring that he shared liberally. He is survived by Phyllis (Schumm) Duer, his devoted and loving wife of 59 years whom he met in grade school, his three children, Mark (Julio) Duer, Paul (Michele) Duer, Kristen (Daniel) Hatchett, grandchildren Michael Duer, Shawndra Miller, Katelyn Hunter, Kyle Culley, Nicole & Eva Hatchett, and great-grandchildren Aedan and Katerina Miller, and Elena Hunter. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries @ www.lutheranmetro.org. A Memorial Gathering to celebrate Ron's life will be held on Saturday, JUNE 19, 2021 at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 2113 Ravenna St., Hudson, OH 44236. Visitation 9:30-11:30AM, service at 12:00PM.
