He then joined the Pulliam Operations area in 1975 and transferred to the Maintenance Department in 1978 where he was a maintenance welder until his retirement in 2004.  

Ron enjoyed old cars, motorcycles, trap shooting, gardening, time outdoors; especially fishing and hunting trips, going up to the cabin, having an old fashion or two, and spending time with his family. He was quite the handyman, and able to fix almost anything.
