Ron met his wife Ella while working in Yosemite National Park in 1954. Falling in love, they were married in November and moved to Los Angeles, California. Ron's experience working for Bonanza Airlines as the assistant station mgr. at the Los Angeles international airport qualified him to go to work for the Federal Aviation, Agency. After working as an air traffic controller for 6 years in Anchorage, Alaska, and the father of 3 young sons, Ron quit his job and moved south to Denver Colorado. It was there that they found the Golconda Resort, raised their 4 sons and hoped one day, they'd pass the business on to their sons.
