Later in life, Ronald accepted Christ. He became a faithful member of the New Life Christian Center located in Lakewood, NJ. He was devoted to the church and loved studying the Bible. He later became a deacon at the church. Ronald dedicated the remainder of his life serving the community he adored.

Ronald would express his joy of being part of the National Guard working for the United States of America. He often expressed his love for his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He loved science fiction books, TV shows, and movies. Ronald also had a passion for music, muscle cars, and playing hours of chess. He was respected and feared by his opponents.
