Ron & Ali were married on December 20, 1975. She was 18 and he was 20. In December 2022 they will celebrate 47 years of marriage. They have climbed many mountains and swam around many valleys but through it all the Lord has guided them, loved them, protected them and blessed them.
Our family includes son, Jamie, his wife, Suzanne and their sweet daughter, Opal. They currently live in Western WA.
Our other son, Brandon, his wife, Danalyn have five boys!!! Max, currently serving in the US Marines and his sweet wife and our second granddaughter, Malarie, Christopher, John, Treyson & Alexander who are all boys and love everything to do with sports of any kind! They currently live in Land O’ Lakes, FL.
As our kids like to say in our previous life Ron was a plumber/general contractor and Ali held many positions including church secretary of our home church, Northwood Alliance, school secretary for HomeConnection, a PPP with Blaine School District, Office Manager for OptionCare and Case-manager for the Coalition for Child Advocacy.
Once we began full time RV living and working we have had a variety of jobs. We have worked for the carnival (Funtastic Shows out of Portland, OR), sold Christmas trees for Noel Christmas Trees in Edmond, WA and then as Campground Managers in Hondo, TX and Branson, MO. We have also been part of a Veterans Camp & Therapy Center in CedarCreek, MO. Also worked with the elderly in Newberg, OR, teenagers in Waco, TX, children of all ages in Yoakum, TX, teenagers in Southport, NC and Brandon, FL and are currently in Bear Branch, KY working and serving the local community through Big Creek Missions. As well we have been Gate Guards in Pecos, TX (the best place ever to get cantaloupe!).
Our motto is ~ We will go wherever the Lord leads us and whenever he tells us its time for a change. We give thanks everyday for the many blessings we have in our lives. Our most precious blessings are our children and grandchildren.
Some of our interests include: reading, writing, going for drives and most of all spending time with our family and friends, and sharing God’s love with others.
