Obituary for Ronald James Malliet

Ronald James Malliet, 80

A long-time resident of Cedarburg, Ron Malliet died in Christ on Monday, May 13, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer. Ron was born in DeKalb, Illinois, the son of Clarence and Sylvia (Myllymaki) Malliet. In September 1986, Ron married Patricia Lee Sampson, and together they raised their cherished daughter, Christina.

For 50 years, Ron was owner and president of KMK Industries, a tradeshow exhibit designer and producer. He made significant contributions to the tradeshow industry as a long-time board member of the Exhibit Designers and Producers Association (EDPA). Ron served as President of EDPA in 1995 and in 2000 was awarded the association’s prestigious Hazel Hays Award.

Ron was an active member of his community, serving many years as a Cedarburg Lions Club member. He devoted countless hours to his faith community at St. Francis Borgia Catholic Church and School and served as school board chairman for two terms.

Ron was passionate about art and spent many years collecting with his wife. He served as a volunteer with the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Ozaukee Art Center, and the Cedarburg Art Museum. Ron also loved to read and travel. He particularly enjoyed vacations with Patti and Christina.

Ron is survived by his beloved wife Patti; daughters Christina (James) Vandagriff and Danielle Malliet; brother Robert (Peg) Malliet; sisters Karen (Arnot) Heron and Marilyn (Gene) Flasch; sister-in-law Lee Malliet; and other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Vernon Malliet, and his first wife Marlene, the mother of Danielle.
