In the post, Ron also stated that he admired his father in an instinct, rather than a formed thought. He added to his post by saying,

My father was kind and decent man. His guidance, his support, his words, his love made me who I am today.

Ron's Personal Life

It might come out as a surprise to many people, but Ron has never been married to a wife. And, it seems strange for a guy with escalating age. He might have plans, but he has never revealed it. Some sources even suggest that he is looking for a wife whose birth sign is Aquarius.

He has never been through a divorce and does not have children. This does not conclude that he is gay though. This gentleman might have further plans to have a family in future but will he wait longer or is he in a hurry, time will tell.
