Ronald was born on January 2, 1949 to the late Vernon and Wilma Slater in Oregon. He proudly served our country as a MP in the Army where he was stationed in Germany. Ronald later earned a Bachelor’s in Science from West Texas A&M and a Master’s Degree in Health Administration from Kennedy Western University. He had a heart for helping which led him into the medical field, first as a LVN, then to a RN, and finally retiring as a BSN. Ronald authored a book titled, “Life is About Choices,” where he writes “I have loved my life that I have lived and would not change any of the choices that I have made because those choices have made me what I am.” His greatest accomplishment was finding his “Joy in life.” Ronald married his true best friend of 33 years, Joy Slater. He adored his wife and praised her daily for the family and life that they shared together. Ronald held a special place in his heart for his favorite companion, Max. To him, Max was more than a dog, he was family. Ronald was a devout follower of Jesus Christ and instilled in his children to count their blessings daily. His faith remained strong until the end and his memory will forever live on through his family and all the people’s lives he touched throughout his time.
Ronald is reunited with his parents and brother, Larry Slater, in Heaven.
He will be deeply missed and never forgotten by his loving wife and best friend, Joy Slater; children, Jonathan Slater, Tyler Slater, Gary Clem, Tim Slater, and Brittnie Slater; brothers, Lonnie Slater and Brian Slater; best companion, Max; and a host of extended family and friends.
