Ron Bogear was an outstanding member of the Indiana Wesleyan community, constantly serving those around him with a joyful, diligent heart. Originally from Huntington, Bogear and his wife, Lois, served Grant County in many ways.
Bogear was a member of Main Street Wesleyan Church for 65 years. Elvin Weinmann said, “Ron worked at Wesley Press for over 35 years, and he really considered that his ministry. He was a very conscientious and giving individual. He cared about people and would give anything for anybody. He was a Christ-like example and a testimony to everyone.”
Bogear was a key part in the Indiana Wesleyan Alumni Center, also. Rick Carder said, “Ron was a very important part of the IWU Alumni Association as a significant volunteer. For many years, the Alumni Association has provided Care Packs (formerly called Survival Kits) for students, and Ron was always counted on for managing the process.” Krista Brown, who worked closely with the care packs, said, “He cared about the students. He wanted them to receive the care packs and to feel important. He worked very hard every year and was always very grateful to be there.”
