Ronald R. Galvin

February 15, 1947 — September 25, 2023

Lee's Summit

Rev. Dr. Ronald R. Galvin, 76, of Lee’s Summit, Missouri passed away September 25th, 2023.

Ron was a retired Presbyterian Minister serving several local churches with his career spanning almost 40 years. Adventure was always on the horizon for Ron; hiking and spelunking whenever he got the chance in his younger years.

Ron helped run his father’s appliance store as a young man, becoming one of the top salesmen for whirlpool appliances. His success was not limited to the store. His true calling was to become a minister and with the support of his family made his dream a reality. He became a respected member of Heartland Presbytery, leading many meetings and helping decide important matters.

Upon retirement he was able to enjoy spending time with his most precious gifts, his 3 granddaughters.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Vernon Galvin, and Darlene Castille, and his brother John Galvin.

Ron leaves behind his loving wife, Sandy, of 42 years, son Brady Forston, daughter Terri (Jason) Prier, granddaughters Bailie, Alexis, and Lanie Prier, two brothers Don (Marianne) Galvin, Lon (Linda) Galvin and many nieces and nephews.
