Following his education Ronnie joined the U.S. Army in October of 1985. Ronnie was active in the military until his honorable discharge in January of 1986.

Then in late 1990's Ronnie opened his own mechanic shop in Yale where he was currently employed. On February 14, 2002, Valentines Day Ronnie was united in marriage to Tammi McKinney.

Spending time with his family especially his grandkids were always times he enjoyed. Going dancing, taking time out for the lake with friends were memorable events. Listening to his music which others said was too loud were things he loved doing. Red Lobster, buffets and Chinese were some of his favorite foods. Going to Branson, Old Paris Flea Market and New Orleans were some places he liked to visit.
