Jack worked 33 years as a supervisory auditor for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Milk Market Administration before retiring in 1990. To be closer to family Jack and Donna moved to Gardner, KS in 2006. Jack was in the Knights of Columbus and was active in other civic and volunteer organizations throughout his life, including serving three terms on the Independence City Council. In retirement Jack spent his time visiting grandchildren, securing donations for the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry in downtown Omaha, and fishing with his wife. Having survived polio as a child Jack was determined to lead a full life and did so by cherishing his family and friends, providing counsel when asked, and lifting spirits with his ever-present sense of humor.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Michael Ronan, and sister-in-law Marge Ronan. He was also preceded in death by grandson John Michael Owen. Jack is survived by his wife of 64 years Donna; sons David Ronan, Olathe, KS and Kevin (Trish) Ronan, Key West, FL; daughters: Julie (Frank) Spokas, Ontario, OR and Helen (Robert) Miller, Olathe, KS; nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
