In 1988 he met Sandi and fell in love. Sandi and Ron were married in 1989. They were self-employed and established Wood and Steel Pro Systems. As general contractors, they built many buildings, structures, and other amazing works of wood. Together they completely remodeled their home. He loved making up songs on the spot to sing to his “Queen of the Oregon Trail”. He stood by her side as she battled cancer until she finally died in 2012.
Ron was a meticulous carpenter with a vast knowledge. He worked for himself and several contractors. His last job was working for HighGate Senior Living as a carpenter. He worked on several of their facilities in Montana, Washington, Arizona, and California. He loved working for the company and was always proud to show his latest accomplishments.
Ron is survived by children; Mark (Glenna) Kaneski of Alaska; Leah (Dwane) Kailey of Helena; Kelly Fiscus (Greg Fitzwilliams) of Billings; and Rhonda Fiscus of Alder; his grandchildren Anthony, Joe, Hannah, Michelle, Brandi, Taylor, Jordan, Luke, Shayla and Cassandra; great grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces. He is also survived by his brothers Jim Kaneski, Loomis, CA, and Dave Kaneski of Billings, MT, his sisters Paula Kaneski, Billings, MT, and Rosemary (Darrell) Casey, Helena, MT.
