Pastor Ron loves sports including golf, tennis, pickle ball, and racquetball. He likes to read, watch movies and enjoys his children and grandchildren.
His greatest supporter has been Sharon, his wife of 33 years. She is a substitute teacher in Kanawha County schools and has a brother who is a pastor in Huntington WV. Her father was also a pastor but has gone home to be with the Lord. She received her Bachelor’s Decree in Journalism at Marshall University. Sharon loves to sing with the praise team.
