Family meant everything to Ronald. He devoted his weekends to his wife and children. Many weekends were spent going camping. He loved fishing, riding dirt bikes, and sitting around campfires. Ronald loved traveling, too. Every summer he would load up his camper and he would take his family on a drive across the country back to his home state of West Virginia to visit his parents. In his later years he went on his first cruise. He enjoyed it so much that he and his wife went on several other cruises.
Ronald Worked for Gates Rubber Company for 28 years and received an early retirement from the company due to Gates shutting down the production plant in Denver, Colorado. Ronald then went to work for Walmart. When he first started working at Walmart he complained because they put him in the toy department. It didn’t take long for him to fall in love with working in toys as he had a lot of fun testing all the new toys and watching the excitement of the little children as they came through looking at the toys. Ronald worked with Walmart until he was able to retire from them with 20 years.
Ronald grew up with had a passion for music even though he never had any kind of music lessons. You would never ever hear him sing or play around anyone. During his later years he met up with some amazing friends that convinced him to step outside of his comfort zone and try to sing and play his guitar in front of people. He started playing the guitar and singing at the White Fence Farm and this is where he found his true passion in life. Ronald began singing at nursing homes and different restaurants, and finally, he started his own gig being the MC for his band that played every Thursday night at the American Legion Post 178 in Lakewood, Colorado. Ronald produced his first music CD called “Keeping it Country” and sold a multitude of copies, as everyone that heard it wanted one. Ronald has been recognized and awarded numerous times by The Colorado Music Hall of Fame for his outstanding accomplishments in country music.

Life’s a Journey
The angles gathered by your side
As we held your hand ever so tightly.
Oh, how we prayed that you’d be strong enough
To stand by our side once again.
As we struggled with our selfish thoughts
For we wanted you to stay
So we could walk, talk, and hear you sing and play
Like we did...Just Yesterday.
But Jesus had a different plan
Your life’s journey here on earth had come to its end
And your new journey is about to begin.
Jesus held up your shiny red guitar and said,
The angles are waiting for you to come sing with them.
We knew it was time for us to say good-bye.
It’s time for you to begin your new journey,
Far beyond the deep blue sky.
As you slowly faded away, we heard Jesus say,
Just listen, you shall hear his music everywhere you go.
Through the singing of birds, wind in the trees,
Raindrops on the roof or a stream rushing nearby.
So, with tear filled eyes we gave you our gift of love
The gift of Letting Go.
