Ron E. Wade Jr., 60, of Stanford, passed away 3:23 pm Monday, July 25, 2022 at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center in Bloomington.

He was born August 25, 1961 in Bloomington to Ronald E. and Judy M. Hall Wade Sr.  He married Wendy Wade on June 26, 1993 in Stanford, and she survives.

He was preceded in death by his father.

Ron worked at Williams NationaLease as a diesel mechanic and service coordinator.

He was a member of Stanford  Sportsman’s Club and a retired lieutenant from the Stanford Fire Department.

He was known for his BBQ chicken, loved to work on plays for the Olympia High School and Middle School Theater Departments, but the highlight of the year was Christmas, where the children would mistake him as Santa Claus.
