Ronnie was born to Carel and Ruth Nowak Kapchinski in Houston on Saturday, February 25, 1961. Ronnie left high school to begin learning the trade of a machinist which would eventually lead him to owning his own machine shop for several years. Ronnie was a girl’s dad four times which included a set of twins. Although he loved being a girl’s dad Ronnie taught his daughters how to enjoy the great outdoors with adventure in all activities. He enjoyed deer hunting in the surrounding Brazos Valley counties. Yes, he would have his daughters alongside him to teach them how to hunt. He had to be the biggest Dallas Cowboy Football fan; he would yell loud enough at the game on T.V. that he could be heard outside. Some friends commented over the years that Ronnie was a look-a-like to Hank Williams Jr., and Charlie Daniels. He will always be remembered for being the greatest of grandpas, and great grandpa. He always without fail would bring candy to give his grandchildren on each visit. In addition to teaching his girls how to cook and maintain for themselves; his favorite hobbies included being a breeder of red and blue Heelers and Germen Shepherds.

He married Cheri Ensminger, and shared twenty-three years of marriage.
