Ronald was born in Michigan City. He graduated from Marquette High School in 1959. He was educated at St. Meinrad and obtained a master’s degree from Purdue in Social Work. He served as a Federal Probation and Parole officer until he retired in 1997.

He spent his retirement years very active at St. Mary’s Church. He served as Head Usher, President of the Men’s Club, and was involved in Family Services. He was the President of Griffith’s EMS Board. He enjoyed his weekly Bowling Leagues and was a caregiver for many.

However, his greatest accomplishment was his very close bond to his wife of 44 years, Judy and his family. Ron was warm, compassionate, and giving of his time.
