Alexis Kettler Obituary, Death – Kettler, who was 82 years old and lived in St. Clairsville, Ohio, passed away at home on September 15, 2022. On February 13, 1940, he was born in Wheeling, West Virginia. His parents, the late James F. Weston and Myrtle Marie Weston, predeceased him. Kettler was a former French and Spanish teacher in the Ohio County School System, and his students fondly referred to him as “Senor Kettler.” Ron taught in the Ohio County School System. In addition, he worked for Sears at the Ohio Valley Mall for a number of years in the furniture department, which is where he met many of his close friends.
He first attended St. Paul Lutheran Church, and then later transferred his membership to Christ Lutheran Church. He was a man of great piety and served the church in multiple capacities, including that of deacon and council member. He found great joy in participating in church services and other community activities, as well as in the companionship that these activities offered. He had a zest for life, was constantly working to make those around him feel at ease, and was quick with a joke whenever the situation called for it. Even up until the very last moments of his life on earth, Ron remained an exceptionally kind and generous individual. He never once moaned, not even once, despite the excruciating pain that was caused by his illness. He had a soft spot for each and every animal and a pure heart.
Edna Schaal Kettler, his devoted wife of 54 years, his two daughters, Michelle Renee Wilson of Litchfield Park, Arizona, and Shannan Watson and her husband, Dennis, of St. Clairsville, Ohio; his five grandchildren, Delaney Renee Kemp, Alexis Noel Watson, and Drake Watson of St. Clairsville; and Mia Bella Wilson and Noah Anthony Wilson of Litchfield Park, Arizona; his sister, Sharon Kettler, of Sun City, His brother, Dr. James E. Kettler, passed away before him and was his immediate predecesor. A remarkable care team that has been by Ron’s side around the clock for the past two years, assisting in making his final years as peaceful and comfortable as they possibly could be, are also among those who have survived. Not only did Wendy Stewart, RN, provide care for Ron when he was in need, but she has also become like a member of our family. Because of this, the family will be eternally grateful to Wendy Stewart.
In the future, there will be a gathering to commemorate Ron’s life called a celebration of his life. At this event, Ron’s loved ones and friends will come together to remember the incredible person who had an impact on all of their lives.
Ron enjoyed spending time with animals and took great pleasure in looking after all of the pets he had acquired over the years. As a result of this enthusiasm, Ron desired to give assurance to the families who love the members of their furry family as much as he did that they will be able to assist them when they are in need. Donations in his memory can be sent to the New Horizon Animal Hospital Angel Fund, which can be found at 52635 High Ridge Road, St. Clairsville, Ohio 43950.
