Funeral service set April 2 for former Reeves MS teacher Dr. Ronald C. Bigelow

The district extends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of former Reeves Middle School science and math teacher Dr. Ronald C. Bigelow, who passed on March 19, 2017.

A funeral service will be held on Sunday, April 2 at 2 p.m. at South Sound Manor, 455 North St. S.E. in Tumwater.

Bigelow was an educator for more than 40 years, having been a teacher, a principal and a superintendent at various school districts in Washington and Oregon.  The obituary published in the Olympian on March 26 notes, “It was his last position in education, however, as a science and math teacher at Reeves Middle School in the Olympia School District that he enjoyed the most.  He loved working with middle schoolers and wanted nothing more than to champion those students who needed someone to believe in them.”

People are invited to share memories at
