Ronnie grew up in Pearl, Illinois, where he met the love of his life Peggy, and they spent a very happy 63 years together. He proudly joined the United States Air Force and served in Okinawa, Japan.

Being an avid outdoorsman, Ronnie especially loved fishing and hunting. He enjoyed traveling to Alaska and Canada, in the summers for fishing trips, as well as visiting family. While on a trip in Alaska, he shot a black bear as he sat on the front porch. Ronnie also liked goose hunting with his buddies during his days at McDonnell Douglas. He enjoyed vacations with family to Vegas, Oregon, and Arizona to see other family also.
Ronnie was known as a big goofball, and he liked to tell jokes and make everyone laugh. He loved reminiscing with his family about the good ole days and tell his tales of mischief! Ronnie was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
