In loving memory of 


Ronald Lee Strickland Jr.

AUGUST 3, 1965 – JUNE 22, 2022


Ronnie, master tradesman, perfectionist, and all-around great man began working with R E Bengel Sheet Metal Company in February 1993. A skilled craftsman, knowledgeable foreman, dedicated and valued employee, Ronnie not only played an integral role in the success and accomplishments of this company, but has served to train, educate, and mentor the next generation of apprentice and journeyman roofers. Ronnie served as an example to others in his personal and professional life. He was respected and loved by all who knew him. We are blessed to have known him and to have called him friend.


We are grateful to his family for sharing him with us these past 28 years and they are forever in our thoughts and prayers. Donations for the family may be sent to:
