Ronald L. Stern


     Ronald L. “Ron" Stern, 69, of Leola, went home in the loving arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on November 9, 2021 while surrounded by his family. Born in Lancaster, he was the son of Abner and Georgette (Lichty) Stern.  He was married for 50 years last December to the love of his life, Terry (Masterson) Stern.

     Ron loved his family, going to his children and grandchildren's sporting events. Spending time with them and playing games on a Saturday afternoon gave him pleasure. He had a love for trains, including his set up in the garage. He loved to ride his motorcycle whenever he could. He enjoyed camping, especially at Woodcrest Retreat where he had a camper for the season.  He could often be found sitting around a campfire with his wife, family and friends.  Ron would always surprise Terry with things for no reason, and if you needed something, he was always there to help.  Ron loved to show pictures on his phone, and if you were in need of a joke, he was there to accommodate you. Ron loved his church family at Breakout Ministries, Leola, where he attended.

     In addition to his wife, he will be lovingly missed by: his children, Michele (Tommy) Lesher, Leola, Mike Stern, Lititz, Mark (Aimee) Stern, Leola; grandchildren, Darian Pompey, Teron Pompey, Trey Stern, Tai Stern, and Johna Lesher; adopted grandchildren, Maryanna Montero, E.J. Montero, Logan Young, Hannah Young, and Nathaniel Ireland; brother, Gerald (Linda) Stern, Port Royal; twin brother, Donald (Cindy) Stern, Mount Joy; brothers-in-law, Chris (Diana) Masterson, Jim Masterson; his many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister, Janet.

     A celebration of Ron's life will be held at Breakout Ministries, 2400 Anita Ct., Leola on Monday, November 15, 2021 at 6:30 PM.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Jesus Advantage c/o Breakout Ministries, 2400 Anita Ct., Leola, PA 17540 or Esther's Heart Ministries c/o World Missions Advance, P.O.
