Best memory ever? We were living on base in Virginia, I believe Fairfax Village. Dad and I were sitting on the couch together. I think we were listening to an album that Tammy had just bought, Jesus Christ Superstar. Anyway, my hair was long at that time, the only time actually, and Dad started stroking it. I still remember that to this day.

his Life

Childhood

Dusty - Ronnie then - was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio.
He had fond memories of visiting and working on his uncle’s (I believe) farm. 

He dearly loved his Grandma Shank. She didn’t tolerate any nonsense from young Ronnie.I remember he told me about her cooking - a hearty chicken stew with potatoes, vegetables, and noodles.
