After more than 40 years in the field of Association Management, Ron welcomes opportunities to volunteer and give back during retirement.
Before becoming a St. Elizabeth of the Trinity parishioner, Ron belonged to St. Cornelius where along with his wife Connie was active in community groups and activities including :
- Parish Council Member
- Eucharistic Minister
- Parish Transformation Team
- Renew My Church Team
Outside of his parish volunteering, Ron uses his business background to help a small, unique Chicago not-for-profit called Chicago Shares.
A lifelong Chicagoan, Ron attended Brother Rice High School and DePaul University. He and Connie raised four children who all graduated from St. Cornelius and attended local Catholic High Schools. Their children and twelve grandchildren all live within 100 miles of Chicago.
Ron is a believer in Catholic education and the Catholic Church.
His goal in serving on the St. Elizabeth Church Council is to help the Parish work in unity to advance its mission far into the future.
A favorite saying of his is “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
