Ron grew up in the Berlin community east of Lebanon. He attended Hamiliton Creek School, Lebanon High School and Oregon State University.

A favorite Buddha teaching of Ron’s is The Four Immeasurables:

May all beings be happy and have the causes of happiness.

May they be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
