Ronald E. Whitlow, 80, of Taylorville, Ill., passed away at 9:37 p.m., on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at Taylorville Memorial Hospital.

Ronald was born May 18, 1939 in Tovey, Ill., the son of Cecil and Sue (Connerly) Whitlow.  He married Marie Clements on December 31, 1965 at Davis Memorial Christian Church in Taylorville, Ill.
