Ron b

Ron began his music career performing with a popular regional band called The Cheetahs.  In 1967 Ron was drafted into the US Army and served in Vietnam with the 25th Infantry Division for one year.  After returning from service overseas he finished his duty as a drill instructor at Fort Dix New Jersey. After being discharged he joined his cousin in a northwest show band called Blue Gin.  Ron also worked at Gateway Music during this period.

 

Ron returned to manage Gateway Music after a short career with the Oregon State Police.  He joined a popular band called Round Trip with Larry Smith.  He now missed law enforcement so he joined the Multnomah County Sheriff Department as a Reserve Deputy.  So now Ron had his perfect life.  He played music four nights a week, managed a music store during the day, and patrolled the streets of Multnomah County.

 

By 1975 Ron decided to open his own business.  He settled on the community of Tigard.  Tigard Music opened in November of 1976.  He later resigned his commission with the Multnomah County Sherriff Department so he could join the Tigard Police Department as a Reserve Officer.  After eleven years of service, and attaining the rank of Lieutenant, he retired from the department to concentrate on raising a family and growing his business.

 

Ron is a founding member of the Tigard 4th of July Celebration Committee and twenty six years later continues to serve as President.  After 36 years at Tigard Music, and a total of 49 years in the music industry, he still enjoys calling on schools and helping customers with their needs.
