Ronnie grew up in Western Kansas on a wheat farm. This was a true family farm when you became active in the operations of the farm at a very early age. Ronnie loved baseball, basketball and received many awards but most of all he loved music. While still in grade school he began a love affair with the guitar that only ended at his death. Ronnie and his Dad would play at the community Friday Night Dances. His Dad played the fiddle and Ronnie the guitar and two other neighbors would play the piano and drums. What a wonderful time of his life.
