Ron was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. He joined the U.S. Air Force immediately following high school where he honorably served for 20 years.

He retired a second time in 2007 to work on his own home and spend time with his family. He will be remembered for being very patriotic, a loyal husband and loving father.
