Ron has three children: RJ (Robert), Harley and Jett Pope. Through the years Ron has been involved in boy scouts and has coached youth sports, including soccer for 10 years. Harley and Jett, along with Ron, are all black belts and they spent several years together training and going to tournaments. Ron taught RJ how to fly. RJ is currently a flight instructor in Phoenix for a company called Transpac. Harley and Jett are both in high school. They enjoy sports and debate. The most important thing in Ron’s life is his family. You will generally find him doing some type of kid’s activities. Every Sunday, they invite friends and family over for dinner, having as many as 15 to 25 people eating Sunday dinner together.

In his spare time, you will find Ron practicing martial arts or competitive sparring. On the weekends, you might see him flying his airplane and enjoying the beautiful sunrises and sunsets in Kansas.
