Ron married Patricia (Pat) McClarnon on August 14, 1965. After the first date Pat told her mother “this is the man I am going to marry.” Ron and Pat have been married 54 years. They had one daughter Shelly in 1967. He was a loving husband and a great father. His love for Pat was show in many ways, especially going to see her in the nursing home every day for two hours.
Ron was very proud of owning his own business Walker Milk Transportation. He had a strong work ethic working at 5 a.m. seven days a week. After running the milk route, he would go back to the shop to work on the trucks, working into the evening. He enjoyed playing pool with the guys and boating with friends and family. He greatly enjoyed working on his automobiles, especially the Corvettes. In his younger years, he enjoyed playing pitch on the weekends and occasionally going to Las Vegas. He enjoyed music such as Elvis and Johnny Cash. Yogi, his little dog, was like a best friend who he called “Little Buddy.”
