•ROLAND E. EATON
Roland E. Eaton (Ron) of The Villages, Florida and long-time school administrator with the Perrysburg Schools, passed away on June 13, 2020. He was born on January 1, 1942 and raised in Lancaster, Ohio, as the son of Mamie and Roland Eaton. He graduated from Lancaster High School in 1960. He attended Bowling Green State University on a football scholarship and received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He was a career educator, serving in communities throughout Ohio and most recently as principal and superintendent of schools in Perrysburg, for nearly 20 years. While he received much recognition for his work in education, he considered his greatest achievement to be his family and he will be most fondly remembered for the love he shared with them. In 2007, he moved with his wife to The Villages, where he enjoyed every minute on the golf course with his many golfing buddies.
Ron is survived by his wife of 55 years, Donna; children, Trent of Chicago, Illinois, and Todd, his wife, Jennifer; grandchildren, Joshua and Samantha Pearl of Parker, Colorado, and several extended family members.
As per Ron’s expressed wishes, there will be only a private Celebration of Life at a later date. For those who wish to make a donation in his memory, the family suggests the Perrysburg Schools Foundation, 140 East Indiana Avenue, Perrysburg, Ohio 43551-0504.
