Ronald accepted the Lord as his savior at an early age. He attended Sunday School and church services throughout his youth. After graduating from high school, he entered the Army and served three years. He was discharged on July 29, 1987. He became a chef while in the Army and was a wonderful cook. He was famous for his homemade light rolls, known as "Ronald's Rolls."

Ronald was employed by three oil companies during his lifetime: Cooper Oil Company, Mitchell Supreme, and Liberty Oil Company in New Jersey.

I just saw Ronny's obituary and was overcome with sadness. He was our oilman and he was wonderful. He was such a hard worker and that is how I picture him, along with his bright expressive eyes and beautiful smile. I will miss him. He was a gem.
My heart felt condolences go to his loving family.
