He was born in Corona, Ca on November 7, 1950 to Marjorie and Elmer Olufson. Raised in Riverside, he graduated from Ramona High School in 1968. A skilled builder, he owned a cabinet shop at the age of 20 and later owned a construction company.

Throughout his life, Ron completed countless projects including furniture building, home remodels for family and friends, a mountain cabin for his daughter and son-in-law, and an amazing tree house for his grandchildren.
