Ronald Pinchott

After a short battle with bile duct of the liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma), Ronald Pinchott passed away on Dec. 12, 2022, at home surrounded by family.

Ronald Frank Pinchott was born on Oct. 26, 1956, to Frank and Rosemary (nee Ahles) Pinchott in Rockford, Ill.

Ron was raised in Roscoe, Ill. He attended St. Peter’s Elementary School in South Beloit and graduated from Hononegah High School in Rockton, Ill.

Ron attended Rock Valley Community College, where he earned his associate’s degree. He then attended Eastern Illinois University and earned his B.A. degree in accounting.

Ron married Catherine McCarty on Aug. 4, 1978. They resided in Grafton, Wis., until moving to Cedarburg, Wis., in 1982.

Ron worked for various companies in Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. He worked for Fromm Laboratories, Aldrich Chemical, GE Healthcare in Oconomowoc and US Bank in downtown Milwaukee.

Ron is survived by his wife of 44 years, Catherine (McCarty) Pinchott; sons Dominic Pinchott (Emily Swanson of Portland, Ore.) of Chicago and Joseph (Colleen Berg) and granddaughter Cara Pinchott of Fayetteville, N.C.

Ron is further survived by his in-laws Ruth Ann and Richard Lowenthal of Rockford, Ill., and San Bruno Calif., Theresa and Jim Oster of Rockton, Ill., Maureen McCarty and Doug Rogers of Loves Park, Ill., Patty and Dean Erwin of Wentzville, Mo., and Bob McCarty of Rockford, Ill., as well as his 14 loving nieces and nephews and six-great nieces and nephews, many of whom he was fortunate enough to entertain over the last few months, and who all contributed care and support.

Ron was actively involved in the events and organizations that his sons were members of as they were growing up. Some of the community may recall him assisting with Boy Scouts, recreational baseball, basketball and soccer.

In more recent years, Ron assisted with the voting polls for the City of Cedarburg.

Ron loved spending time with his family and friends. Fishing and boating were the passions he shared with family every weekend and up North Wisconsin in the summer as often as possible. He loved being on his boat or on B-dock at McKinley Marina, enjoying the wonderful community.

As a lifelong Packer fan, he frequently brought the entire family to Lambeau Field on game day.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents Frank and Rosemary Pinchott of Roscoe, Ill., his father-in-law Harold (Mac) McCarty of Rockford, Ill., and Galveston,Texas, and his brother-in-law Tim McCarty of Rockford, Ill., and Glidden, Wis.
