Ronald F. Mohlke, 85, of Michigan City, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at his son and daughter-in-law’s home in Valparaiso. Ron was born on October 14, 1938 in Michigan City to Fredrick and Olive (Anderson) Mohlke.  A 1956 graduate of Elston Senior High School, Ron worked in the pattern shop at Weil-McLein for 46 years, having started working there at 17.   He enjoyed playing and watching golf, shooting, chopping wood, gardening, spending time with family, friends, and former co-workers, and taking drives around the country roads.  
Ron is survived by his sons, David (Grace) Mohlke of Valparaiso and Howard (Jill) Mohlke of La Porte; granddaughters, Jennifer, Sarah, and Megan; and great-grandchildren, Elise and Caden. Ron was preceded in death by his parents; ex-wife, Nancy (Gearhart); son, Ronald F. Mohlke, Jr.; sister, Joan (Mohlke) Babcock; and special friend of many years, Margaret, with whom he enjoyed many games of Upwords, meals at Jennie Rae’s, and trips to Bailey’s in Toto.
At this time there will be no services. Ron supported several charities--please consider making a donation to one of your favorites in his honor.


Sorry for your loss Howard and David he was a good man he will be missed. -Donald Aitchison
