Over the years he owned several Corvette’s that he loved to drive around in. In his spare time, Ron liked to watch old western movies and to go out and eat with his wife Diane. He enjoyed eating homemade pies for dessert. He loved his dogs especially Jake from years ago to most recently Duke which was an abandoned dog that he took in. Ron’s true passion though was his family, most especially his wife, children and grandchildren, which he loved dearly. He loved his granddaughter Alexa, whom he was able to visit and spend time with for the nine short days that she lived. Also most recently being able to hold his grandson Jackson who was only one week old before Ron passed away, gave him great pleasure.
