After his marriage to Emily Case (nee Hettinger) they raised their family in Middlesex County until moving to the shore area in 1978. Ronald was an amazing person, overcoming physical obstacles since early childhood to succeed in many achievements and accomplishments.

With his wife Emily, he worked very hard to provide a wonderful life for his family, instilling in them a love for the arts, music, and history. His greatest achievement was his family and he was the best husband, father, and grandfather ever. He was one of a kind. Ronald was predeceased by his parents, son Ronald Jr. and his brother Gerald.
