Ronald was born to Frank and Alice (Kausler) Schroeder on January 17, 1937 in Sheboygan. He attended Sheboygan area schools. After his schooling, Ronald joined the United States Army during the Korean War. In 1988, he married Arlene Waite in Sheboygan.
Ronald was employed with Kohler Company for 34 years. After his retirement, Ronald greatly enjoyed driving bus for Prigges Bus Company.
Ronald had a love for serving others, whether you were family, friend, or stranger. Ronald and Arlene both greatly enjoyed their volunteer work with the Salvation Army.

Ronald was also involved with the Upper Room, attending bible study every Tuesday morning with Arlene for many years.
Ronald and Arlene went on many trips together to Florida, Montana, and Nashville. One of his favorite trips was his family reunion in North Carolina.
