He has multiple family members and a host of friends from all over the country that loved him dearly.Aside from his family, riding and racing dirt bikes was the reason for his existence. He was well known in the Texas vintage dirt bike community for his passion for motorcycles, whether it was riding, racing, or collecting all things motorcycle related. He lovedbeing at a track with all of his friends, and was always eager to mentor new riders so they too would enjoy the sport as he did. He was an aggressive rider, but could also bench-race with the best of them! The motorcycle community will not be the same without"Big Money", "Barney", "PopPop", the "Merry Miler", or any ofthe other nicknames he was known by.Ron lived life well, and enjoyed simple times with his family. He liked a good meal, telling his daughters jokes, watching his grandchildren play, rescuing turtles from the road, helping anyone in need, giving history lessons, or engaging in political discussions. You were always sure to find him with a twinkle inhis eye and a rapid-fire one-liner. There are few people in this world capable of matching his quick wit.Services celebrating Ron's life will be 3:00 p.m. on Sunday,August 11, 2019 at the Schmidt Funeral Home Grand Parkway Chapel, in Katy, Texas with Rev. Mark Kimbrough officiating.
Please keep his family in your prayers!
