In Loving Memory


February 24, 1931 – April 21, 2020

We sadly announce the passing of our Founder and dear friend, Ron Birtcher. In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to make a charitable donation to the Foundation in honor of Ron’s memory.

Ron devoted his later years to establishing the Birtcher Family Foundation; it was through the Foundation that Ron and Joanne worked together to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and to promote Christian values in foreign lands.  This work will continue as he and Joanne established it.  After a brief period of mourning and remembrance, the Foundation will return to a normal level of activity.

If you wish to leave a message of remembrance for the family or the Foundation, you may do so


Birtcher Family Foundation is recognized by the IRS as a non-profit family foundation, eligible to receive tax deductible charitable contributions (Federal Identification Number 20-1089341). Contributions are made with the understanding that Birtcher Family Foundation has control and administration over the use of donated funds.
