Ronald was born in Sidney, Montana, on March 2, 1954, to Eva and Howard Blodgett. He was the youngest of three boys.
Ronald was a man who did not know the meaning of regret. If he was passionate about something, he pursued it whole-heartedly. Throughout his life he was the front man for two country music bands, started his own engineering and fabrication business, played goalie for a hockey team, built and raced in mud racing, played softball, coached his sons in baseball and basketball, and helped everyone he could.
He spent his free time fishing, camping, four-wheeling, checking the obituaries, and watching the Jazz. He touched many lives and will be missed.
Ronald is survived by his two brothers, Roger (Pat) and Robert (Christie); his children, Dusty (Truley), Heidi and Toby (Alecia); and nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
