Ronald J. Brightwell, 76, of Warren, entered into eternal rest Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at Trumbull Memorial Hospital. He was born May 2, 1943 in Alliance, the son of William and Madeline (Young) Brightwell, and had lived in the area all his life.
A 1962 graduate of Warren G. Harding High School, Ronald worked in construction and was always proud to show off the many buildings he had worked on. He attended Zion Apostolic Church in Akron and enjoyed cutting grass, cleaning cars, and collecting items.

Preceding him in death are his parents; his beloved wife of 50 years, Betty (Stroud) Brightwell, who he married August 12, 1967 and who passed away January 10, 2018; and a grandson, Jonathan Brightwell.
