Ron spent his younger years in Blaine, Oregon, and graduated from Nestucca High School in May of 1956. He then joined the National Guard. He set chokers for the summer and then went straight to work as a log truck owner/operator in October of 1956. This was the start of a 62-year career.
Ronald met his wife, Mildred Mitchell, and they married on December 3, 1960, in Beaver, Oregon. They moved around Oregon a little and ended up in La Grande. His main hobby was trucking and keeping up the truck, and time with family.
