Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Ron lived most of his early years in the deep South. He graduated from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia in 1961, and then went on to receive a graduate degree in church music from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. After 15 years of ministry and 22 years of automotive related sales in Oklahoma, Ron and his wife Paula moved to the Pawleys Island area in 1997. At that time they both began their current “team oriented” Real Estate careers. Though deeply committed to their work and their Christian faith, they somehow always find enough time to squeeze in an occasional round of golf with friends and clients.
