Ronald Florean Kemiel

July 24, 1955 — January 8, 2023

Ronald  Florean Kemiel, 67, of La Porte, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 8, 2023.

Ronald was born on July 24, 1955 in La Porte, IN, to Florean and Ann A. (Tuszynski) Kemiel.

On July 9, 1988  in La Porte, IN, he married Carla Huenecke who survives.  Also surviving are his children, Nathaniel (Kim) Kemiel of Rolling Prairie and Katrina (Matthew) Petsche of Indianapolis; a special soon to be granddaughter Kemiel; siblings, Norma Kemiel of La Porte, Phyllis Kemiel of Michigan City, and Richard (Mary Ann) Kemiel of La Porte; as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Florean and Ann Kemiel, and brother-in-law, Walter Regeski.

Although Ronald's work career included working at Mitchell and Schoppel and H&P Sales and Service, his true passion was farming on the family farm.  He loved cheering on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and spoiling his beloved dog, Bailey, and grandpups, Fiona, Lola, and Edgar.  Ronald was a faithful member of the Catholic church.

Ronald will be fondly remembered for his infectious laugh and great sense of humor.  Above all, Ronald dearly loved his family.
