Ronald was raised on a farm near Stella, growing up with a love for farming and graduated Southeast Consolidated High School in 1975. Following graduation he struck out on his own worked hard at different jobs including, farming with his dad and grandfather, working odd jobs and helping other farmers, in addition to raising livestock. In his life it always came back to dancing, drinking, singing and farming. In the last 15 years he developed health issues and had to give up a lot of the things he loved to do.
