Ronald H. Stouffer, 88, of Lee Center, passed away on Wednesday, July 7, 2021, at University Hospital in Syracuse. Born in New Cumberland, PA, on December 24, 1932, he was a son of the late Earl and Gertrude (Dysinger) Stouffer. He was a graduate of New Cumberland High School and served in the United States Air Force from 1953-79. On March 26, 1955, he was united in marriage to Catherine Horton, a blessed union of 66 years.
