Ronald died due to a motorcycle accident. He served in the U.S Navy. He was a graduate of Mark Keppel High School. Class of 1949. Ronald contracted strep throat as a young child. The virus effected his heart, causing him to have an enlarged heart. Ronald enlisted in the Navy after high school. He served for one year, but was medically released due to a possible heart murmur.
Ronald loved riding motorcycles. He was a very careful and contentious rider. On the day of his accident witnesses said Ronald slowly accelerated from the signal, but suddenly sped up lost control and hit a tree. Probably due to the era of the accident and the cause of death being blunt force trauma from the tree, an autopsy was not performed. But speculation is that Ronald might had fainted or got light headed due to his heart problems
