Ron loved talking to people and making them laugh. He was quite the jokester and enjoyed surprising people. Ron was a big Elvis fan and loved his music. He loved going to classic and street rod car shows with his cousin, Danny Adams. They would ride in shows in Des Moines, Lincoln and Omaha with a 1932 Chevy Street Rod (very classy). Ron enjoyed baseball and was a big Clarinda A's fan. He was at the ball field at every game and helped out in any way he could. He was also a Nebraska Corn Husker fan. Ron loved all of his nieces and nephews and enjoyed pulling them in the wagon with his garden John Deere Tractor. Preceding Ron in death was his father, Clark Hartman.
