Ronald was a very humble man who was honored to have many different titles in his life; father, brother, husband and Airman. Like so many of his generation, he served in the US Airforce. Ronald enjoyed many of life’s pleasures; watching his favorite television programs, trying his luck at fishing, shooting pool, wood working, and spending time tinkering around his yard, especially with his beloved water fountain.
