Obituary for Ronald R. Eck

Ronald Rex Eck, 88, of West Reading, passed away Sunday, August 16, 2020 at the Reading Hospital. He was the loving husband of Judy A. (Weidenheimer) for 62 years. Born in Pottstown to the late William and Lucy (Fulmer) Eck, he was one of 14 children.

Ronald worked for many years at Yergey’s Moving & Storage, retiring in 1993. For many years, he was a volunteer firefighter with the Empire Hook & Ladder Company in Pottstown, and was a Lifetime Member of the Volunteer Fireman’s Beneficial Assoc. in West Reading. As a teenager, he loved roller skating at Ringing Rocks in Pottstown and was in Dance Skating competitions at Pheasant Land in Boyertown.

Ronald loved going to Effie’s Charcoal Chef for breakfast and chatting with Effie and her friendly staff. Ronald said “It’s just like eating at a friend’s house.” He also enjoyed going to Knoebel’s Park, Shady Maple Smorgasbord, mowing the lawn, shoveling snow in the winter and feeding the backyard bunnies, birds and squirrels. Ronald had a mischievous sense of humor. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to family, friends and neighbors.

He is survived by his children: Vicci L., wife of Barry Eidell, of Pottstown; Cheryl A., wife of William Long, of Exeter; and Carol A., former wife of Westley Boyer, both of Womelsdorf; his 7 grandchildren: Brooke, Blaire, Ryan, Steven, Tonya, Skylar and Darien; his 9 great-grandchildren: Elena, Eva, Darius, Maddison, Lilly, Quentin, Hailey, Dustin and Dalton; and sisters: Lucy Kaas, Betty Harmanski and Gloria Gaugler.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his daughter, Louise A., and his siblings: Pete Eck, L. Donald Eck, Janice (Dolly) Nye, William Eck Jr., Robert Eck, June Frank, Myrtle Frey, Jack Eck, Ethel McBride and Jerry Eck.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Ronald’s memory to the American Heart Assoc., 968 Postal Rd. #110, Allentown, PA 18109.

Services will be private. Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc. is assisting with arrangements.
