Ralph (Bo) Timothy Statton

Former River Falls resident, Ralph (Bo) Timothy Statton, 74, died October 28th, 2018 peacefully in his home in Chester Springs, PA.

He was born June 2, 1944 in Lafayette, Indiana to Kenneth and Doris Statton.

After serving in the armed forces during the Vietnam War, Bo spent his entire career in the hospitality industry and gave back to those around him as much as he ever received. The bar he owned and operated in River Falls, Bo's and Mine, is still in operation to this day and he was general manager of River Falls Country Club before moving to Pennsylvania. There he served as GM at Chester Valley and Whitford Country Clubs for over 15 years and was also a founding member of French Creek Golf Club in Elverson, PA.

Later in life, his love for golf was surpassed only by his love for his grandchildren Ava, Jake and Ellie Dunham (ages 7, 5 & 2), Cassidy Statton (age 2) and Natalie Kenney (3 months).

Bo is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Ellen Statton (Klecker); his sister, Eileen Shelton; and his three children, Brandon Statton, Edith Dunham, and Jenna Kenney, along with their spouses.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Doris Statton; and his sisters, Phillis Gilliland and Pamela Noon.

Bo's family held a Memorial Mass on Saturday, November 3rd at St. Elizabeth Church, 110 Saint Elizabeth Dr., Chester Springs, PA. His interment will be private.

Memorial contributions can be made in Bo's name to The First Tee of Greater Philadelphia, 800 Walnut Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19128 or by visiting
