Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our brother, Rev. Ronald Greilich, died on Saturday, March 26, 2022.
Ron began his ministry as a full time local pastor in the El Dorado Community Parish.

Ron was born in Owosso, Michigan on October 21, 1932. Ron loved to hike and camp, many family vacations involved both. He led Pioneer Camp backpacking trips for middle school students for many years. He was proud to have hiked Mount Whitney. Ron also enjoyed golfing.
He is survived by his wife, Florence Greilich, and by his children, Rhonda Pope of Clovis CA, Cheryl Muñoz of Sanger CA, and Tim Greilich of Fresno CA, by 6 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
