Ronald Jerome Pancake

July 8, 1959 - February 28, 2018


    On Wednesday February 28, 2018, Ronald “Ron” J. Pancake, 58, of Nashville and Petersburg, Indiana passed away at IU Health Hospice House in Bloomington, Indiana. Ron was born July 8, 1959 in Washington, Indiana to Elsie Faye Pancake and Ronald Hayes. He was later adopted by his aunt & uncle, Esther & Paul Pancake, upon the death of his mother, Paul’s sister.  

    Ron was an Eagle Scout, a musician, outdoorsman, artist, and a Dad. The rest of the things he did paid the bills. He is survived by his pride and joy, his son, Broderick “Brody” Pancake; his mother, Esther Pancake; brother, John Robert “Bob” Pancake; sisters, Kimberly (Joel) Foust, Lisa (Mick) Hetman and Chris (Rusty) Hinnefeld; 3 step-daughters, Kelli (David Jr.) Charkosky, Stacey (Michael) Font and Kasey (Richard) Burns; 12 step-grandchildren; 2 step-great grandchildren; nephews, Joseph Hetman, Sam Foust, Russell & Christopher Hinnefeld; niece, Bailey Foust; and many extended family members.  

    He was preceded in death by his mother, Elsie Faye Myers; his father, Paul Pancake; his wife, Vicki Pancake; and his grandparents, Millie & Willard Pancake and Margaret & Spencer Parker.  

    A celebration of life ceremony will be held later this spring to celebrate nature, Ron’s second home.

    The family would like to thank IU Health Bloomington Hospital and Hospice House for their excellent care of, and kindness to Ron. A special thanks goes out to dear friend (practically brother) Grant Eversoll for all that he’s done for Ron. And now may the great scoutmaster of all scouts be with us till we meet again.

Send Condolence

So sorry for your loss.
