Ronald is predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his son, Stephen Andrew Coleman of Dallas, Texas.

Ronald graduated from Searcy High School in 1969. Ronald enjoyed growing up in Searcy and made lifelong friends as a result.

Ronald graduated from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas in 1973 with a degree in accounting. While in college, Ronald was selected to Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. He was a member of the National Honor Society, Alpha Chi and the National Accounting Honor Society, Delta Mu Delta.

Upon his retirement, Ronald returned to Arkansas to reside in Hot Springs Village. It was the perfect setting for him as an avid golfer with an abundance of courses available to him.
