Ronald E. (Humpty) Kolish, 67, Homer City died Thursday, October 22, 2020, at Beacon Ridge Nursing Home. He was the son of the late Edward and Mildred (Colinchuck) Kolish and was born on February 12, 1953, in Indiana.
Ronald is survived by his sister, Carole, and her husband James Woods, and his brother Thomas Kolish and his wife Ricki, both of Homer City. He is also survived by his nieces, Tiffany Eiselman, Heidi Niemi and her husband Chad and Danielle Kolish; nephew, Michael Kolish, and great-nephews, Dannion and Gavin Eiselman.
Ronnie worked at Season All & Gorell’s his entire working career. In his younger day’s he was well known in the Homer City area for playing softball and later, as his age got the better of him, being a meticulous scorekeeper. His passions were trading card collecting and The Beatles. He also loved anything to do with history.
Ron will be remembered as a kind, generous, loving son, brother, uncle, and brother-in-law. Everyone who knew him always remarked how gifted and intelligent he was and they were in awe of that. He was quite often called a genius. An example was when "Uncle Ron" used to watch Jeopardy with his nieces, they were all amazed that he would answer every question correctly, and effortlessly.
Friends will be received Sunday from 2-4 and 6-8 PM at Bowser Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc., Homer City. Funeral Services will be held Monday at 11 AM in the Bowser Funeral Home Chapel. Interment to follow in the Luther Chapel Lutheran Cemetery, Coral, PA.
Due to the pandemic, masks are mandatory.
