In Memory of Ron Cavenaile
A great-grandson of Ferdinand and Mary Adermann died on Sunday, December 18, 2011. He was the son of Vera (DeJong) Cavenaile (1921 – 2005) and the biological grandson of Mary Adermann Krumreich (1892 – 1921). His grandmother, Mary, died at the age of 28 giving birth to Vera. Vera was then raised by Mary’s sister, Ernestena (“Tiny”) Adermann DeJong (1890 – 1960)–hence Vera’s last name in the following obituary.
Here is a remembrance of Ron:
Born May 4, 1951 in Springfield to the late Alexander and Vera (nee DeJong) Cavenaile, he was a graduate of South East High School in Springfield, IL. He moved to Joliet in October 1977. He retired January 2006 from AT&T after 33 years of service as a customer service technician.
He leaves his dear wife of 40 years, Chris (nee Stokes) Cavenaile; his beloved children Paul (Melissa), Kevin (Stephanie) and Scott (Jill) Cavenaile; the grandchildren he loved and was devoted to: Ethan, Olivia, and Abigail; Carter, Coleman, Carli and Caden; his sister, Marie Cavenaile of Springfield, IL; and many nieces and nephews who survive him.
Ron was preceded in death by his parents, Vera and Alex, and two brothers, Alex and Thomas.
He was an avid outdoorsman, who enjoyed hunting and fishing. Ron was a great mentor to his sons; he could fix just about anything. He loved being with his family, whether it was dinner with his wife, playing with the grandkids, or educating his sons in the “Club Cav” (Ron’s garage), time with Ron was always memorable.
Funeral Services for Ronald R. Cavenaile were held Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. at the funeral home with Pastor Bob Hahn officiating. Interment was at Plainfield Township Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials in his name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital would be appreciated.
