Ron was born on March 2, 1951 in Appleton, son of the late Cyril and Regina (Jackels) Halbach. He was a graduate of Hilbert High School, class of 1969.

Ron worked hard at several jobs throughout his career to provide for his family. Even after retirement, he continued working driving truck for Schneider Farms. In his spare time, he enjoyed helping his brothers and kids with anything and everything. He was a staple in the gym in his blue and white where he enjoyed watching his kids and grandkids play sports. This brought Ron much pride and joy.
