Ron was an active member of the Silver Creek Volunteer Fire Department, where he served as a lieutenant in the Fire Police. He loved his canine companions, “Kazoo” and “Ruger”, hunting, taking long rides in the country, but most of all his family was everything to him. Ron never took one day of his life for granted and tried to make every day count.
