Ronald Edward Ward DANVILLE, Ill. - Ronald E. Ward, 59, of Danville, passed peacefully into his next adventure surrounded by those who loved him at 10:38 a.m. Saturday, March 9, 2019, at his home. Ron had fought a courageous 2-year battle with Chronic Myelomonoctic Leukemia.
He was born April 5, 1959, in Rantoul, Ill., to Stephen Alfred and Dorothy Robeck Ward.
Ron and Jeanne Darnell were united in marriage June 11, 2000, in Danville.

He was preceded in death by his father, and two sisters, Lori Ann Ward and Rebecca Ann McBride.
