Ronnie was born in Gastonia, North Carolina on December 25, 1952 to the late John Andrew Sadler and Martha Tate Sadler. Ronnie graduated from North Carolina A&T State University. Ron, as he was known to his co-workers, retired after 30 years with Brown and Williamson Tobacco Company/Reynolds American.

Ronnie was a true servant of the Lord. He served the community through his beloved church- Gospel Water Branch Baptist Church, Columbia County Cares Food Pantry, and Columbia County West Rotary Club - where he served as Past President and was a Paul Harris Fellow.
