After High School, Ronald served in the United States Air Force. He proudly represented the United States during his time as a Communication Electronic Technician from '63 to '67.

Following his military service, Ron dedicated the majority of his life to being self-employed. His companies ranged from logging and driving trucks over the road to working on trucks and equipment. Later on, he operated a shop, salvage yard, and sold used cars. Ron was known for his constant wheeling and dealing, trying to find how to make his next buck.

Ron had a variety of interests and hobbies. He was an avid fan of NASCAR and enjoyed the thrill of watching the races. One of his favorite pastimes was owning a late-model stock car which he raced at Wiscasset Speedway. Ron also had a passion for hunting, camping, and cheering on the Boston Red Sox. He had a knack for knowing how to fix anything that came through his garage from cars, to equipment, to diesel trucks "Jack" knew how to fix it all!

Ron will be missed by his family, friends, and all who had the pleasure of knowing him. 

A private memorial service will be held to honor Ronald's life. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made to a veteran support organization of your choice.
