Ron was born September 23, 1937 in Worland, Wyoming. He grew up in Lingle, Wyoming on his family's farm, where his grandparents had homesteaded. After graduating from Lingle High School in 1956, he joined the US Air Force. In 1958 he married Jane Anderson of Henry, Nebraska and they would go on to have three children.

In 1969 he and his family returned home to the farm following the death of his father. He was then elected Goshen County Sheriff. He served from 1971 to 1975. Over the course of his varied career he would continue to work on the family farm and undertake several business endeavors, such as working in real estate, and operating the Wagon Wheel Western Store in Lingle. In retirement he and Jane traveled the southwestern states and later owned and operated a drive-in restaurant in Lusk, Wyoming where they lived until his death.
