A lifelong native of Hendersonville, Ron graduated from Hendersonville High School in the Class of 1963; he honorably volunteered and served our country by completing two tours in Vietnam (Sept. 1965 – July 1969) as an Antenna Man for the Army. Upon returning home, he obtained a degree from AB Tech in Carpentry and worked in the industry for years. In 2004, Ron retired as a skilled welder from Eaton Corporation.
Ron was a life-long member of First Baptist Church of Hendersonville; who enjoyed volunteering as a Sunday school teacher, usher and in other various roles over the years. He was a member of Hendersonville Shrine Club and Kedron Masonic Lodge No. 387. He loved volunteering and jumped to the occasion to do so. In his free time, Ronald was found tinkering in his woodshop, riding motorcycles, or showing off his skills as a BBQ extraordinaire.
