Ronald Bennett served in the United States Army from 1969 to 1971 where he was honorably discharged.

Ronald truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; spending time with family and friends, attending to his yard, taking care of animals and providing for his wife and nephew. Ronald could make friends with anyone and had the uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. He will be remembered by his family as a kind-hearted, very hardworking man that placed his family and friends before anything else, even himself.
