Ron Statz loses battle with cancer

April 4, 2013 | 0 comments

Ronald Statz, age 77, of Waunakee passed away Wednesday, March 27, after a courageous year-long battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was born on May 16, 1935, to Carl F. and Helen Statz, graduated from Waunakee High School in 1953 and married Tonetta Olson from Belleville, in 1959.

The couple raised five children: Mike (Wendy) Statz, Mark Statz, Lisa (Brian) Cisewski, Linda (Mark) Stewart, and Rick (Joann) Statz.

Ron Statz spent his life working with farm equipment from age 10 when he drove a tractor at his dad's farm, helping at his dad's farm equipment business and for many years - with his brothers - running that business and still serving as the active company president at death.

Ron "Ronnie" Statz and his brothers Ken and Dave took over management of the family-owned Carl F. Statz & Sons farm equipment dealership upon their father's death in 1991.

Most every farmer in southern Wisconsin and, since the advent of the internet, many who lived a long way away, knew the Carl F. Statz name and the Statz brothers: Ronnie and Ken both born salesmen and Dave, the parts whiz, who owned the Case/IH dealership. Ron Statz grew up in small-town Waunakee (the only one in the world) as a sports lover, from Waunakee Home Talent Baseball to the Badgers, Packers and Brewers. Although it is arguably not a sport, Ron was a lover of farm auctions and was a regular auction-goer, his brother Ken said.

Ron was an active and well-known businessman and a longtime member of the Waunakee Fire Department.

Ken also says that Ron first mentioned that he didn't feel well about a year ago and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last March, just after the National Farm Equipment Show in Memphis.

Ron continued to work while undergoing treatment, Ken and Dave said. "He even came to the dealership the day before he died," Dave says.

Ron Statz will be missed by his family and friends but unlike many businesses, Carl F. Statz & Sons will continue in the family with Ken and Dave and a third generation of Statz' made up of Ron's sons, Mike and Mark; Ken's son Dean and Dave's sons Brad and Bob, all working in the business.

Funeral services for Ron Statz were held April 3. An obituary can be found at Info@Cress FuneralService.com.
