Ron was dedicated to his family and Christian faith and was a man who enjoyed living life, listening to music, and fellowship with friends. Ron was a long-time trucker and motorcycle enthusiast who knew his way around just about anywhere. He was known to try his hand at playing the banjo, bass, and mandolin as well as dabbling in saddle making. He was a "cowboy at heart."
