Born on February 17, 1943, in St. Peter, he was born to George and Lillian (Peterson) Seitzer. Ron grew up on the family farm outside of Cleveland, Minnesota and attended Cleveland Public School. At the age of 17, he enlisted into the United States Army Reserves and honorable served his country until being called home to help on the family farm.

On October 17, 1970, Ron was united in marriage to Nancy Hemple at St. Peter Catholic Church in St. Peter. Together they shared 44 years of marriage before Nancy passed away on July 17, 2015.
