Ronald Paneitz of St. Peters, MO, passed away at the age of 81 on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ray and Bertha Paneitz.

Ronald is survived by his loving wife, Mary Jo Paneitz; his sons, Scott (Tamara) Paneitz and Steve (Diane) Paneitz; his grandchildren, Tyler Paneitz and Zach Paneitz; his step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren; his brother, Eugene (Faye) Paneitz; his nephews, Terry, Neal (Donna), Mark (Sheri); his niece, Sheila; and his great-and-great-great nieces and nephews.

Ron grew up on a farm in Nebraska and it was this upbringing which taught him the importance of hard work that he carried with him throughout his life. He was an active member of Prince of Peace Church and also attended Dardenne Presbyterian Church after moving to St. Charles County. Ron worked for many years for ANCO Testing Lab where he later became owner of the company. He was part of the team that helped construct and build the St. Louis Arch which he was very proud of.

Ron loved sports and excelled at them in his younger years. He was an avid tennis player, and also enjoyed a game of pinochle or bridge. Ron’s most cherished times were spent with his sons and family. He will be greatly missed. Ron will always be remembered for his hard work ethic and giving 110% in anything he did in life.

Contributions in Ronald’s honor may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or to Dardenne Presbyterian Church.

    Dear Mary Jo, So sorry to hear of your loss. I know you and Ron had many wonderful years together. I remember him as a high-energy, fun, outgoing guy. My family and I had such a great time when you entertained us at your resort home in Indian Hills many years ago. Know that I am thinking of you and remember with fondness our friendship at work years ago. With sincerest sympathy, Susan Pensoneau
