Ronald V. Luther, 57, of Bellefonte, passed away unexpectedly on December 30, 2015. Born on December 22, 1958, in Philipsburg, PA, he was the eldest son of the late Vincent Luther and Virginia (Timco) Luther who survives in Bellefonte.
Ron married his college sweetheart, Stephanie Speelman of Chambersburg, PA on June 8, 1985. After graduating from Penn State University with a degree in Quantitative Business Analysis, Ron spent most of his professional career at Corvette America as an account representative.
Ron was a practicing Christian and faith was an important part of his life, always a welcome presence at church services and events. One of his favorite faith related activities was attending Christian concerts. A lifetime love of sports was fostered in Ron from a young age, whether it be the comradery of his old softball team, or the countless hours on the golf course perfecting his formidable drive, or time spent watching his favorite Pittsburgh and Penn State sports teams. Travel was also an important part of Ron’s life, taking every opportunity to get away to the beach with his adored Stephanie. Ron’s selflessness was clear to everyone around him and he was always happiest when he was able to lend a helping hand to his friends and family, well above and beyond his roles as dearly loved husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend.
Ronald is preceded in death by his beloved brother Alan J. Luther and his father Vincent.
Along with his wife and mother, he is survived by his sisters Brenda A. Morrison of Bellefonte and her husband James, as well as Kathleen M. Peter of Lock Haven and her husband Dan, his beloved nieces and nephews, and best buddy Ben.
Private graveside services will be overseen by Pastor Tim Yates of the Watermarke Church at the convenience of the family. A Celebration of Life Service will be held and announced at a later date. The family requests in lieu of flowers that memorial donations be made to the Watermarke Church at 210A East Howard Street Bellefonte, PA 16823, or to Centre County Paws, 1401 Trout Road, State College, PA, 16801.
