Lynn & Janet Stover When Gene notified us Ron had passed away it brought up a lot of memories, The many days hanging out a Tiede Truck Line on the hill and even going with Ron hauling cattle for Lyle. I spent alot of time at the Tiede home and Ester fixed alot of meals for us boys. Ron and I run around some but Gene and I probable gave Lyle & Ester some gray hair but we sure had a lot of fun. While on the McPherson Fire Dept Ron stopped in fairly often and I always knew when I seen an 18 wheeler on the back drive it was Ron and always appreciated the visit. He loved his big rig and had some really nice trucks over the years! Love and Prayers to the Tiede Family! Rest in Peace Brother Ron!!!!!!!!!
