Ronnie K Bean

January 24, 1936 — April 6, 2020

Ronnie K. Bean, son of Chester and Florence (Dennis) Bean was born January 24, 1936.  He passed away April 6, 2020 at The Good Life Center in Callaway, NE.

Ronnie was raised on the family farm south of Arnold.  

Ronnie married Sharron Welty on May 29, 1956.  Three children were born to this union, Debbie, David, and Darry.  In the early years of marriage, Ronnie worked in road construction and lived on the family farm. In 1968 the family moved to town.  At that time, Ronnie owned a custom baling business. His integrity and work ethic was a priority - even if it meant working all night long to get the bales just right.  Ronnie also did custom dirt-work and land-leveling for irrigation.  

Ronnie’s love of family was the most important thing in his life.  He instilled a work ethic in all 3 of his children. Ronnie taught them how to bale hay, how to repair the baler, and how to work alongside him.  The kids helped to tear down a house and reuse the lumber to add on to their family home. They all learned how to pull nails and the boys learned building construction skills.  Ronnie worked to figure things out and find a way to accomplish difficult tasks. He was a teacher of life-skills to his family.  

Ronnie worked for the Arnold Township for 27 years.  He operated the maintainer and took great pride in taking care of the roads and moving snow.  He always took great pride in his work.  

Ronnie and Sharron purchased Bean’s Boutique on Main Street in Arnold.  They worked together in the store and loved serving their customers and friends in the community.  

Ronnie and Sharon were married for 59 years until she passed in 2015.  Ronnie did everything he could to help Sharron, including helping her plant and care for her flower gardens.  Ronnie missed Sharron after she passed and was lonely without her.  

Ronnie’s survivors include his children:  Debbie (Don) Brosius; David (Patty) Bean; and Darry (Sherry) Bean. His grandchildren and great-Grandchildren: Jenna (Jeromy) Matthies, Elayna, and Jasper, Elizabeth, Jourdan, and Jake; John Brosius, and sons Hunter and Jaxton;
