Ron, as most of his friends referred to him, was exceptional artist who was passionate about Marvel and DC graphic novels. His passion led him to create his own graphic novels and numerous original action figures.

Ronald was engaged to marry Stephanie Dec, his devoted life partner of seven years.

He leaves behind his loving and caring parents Ronald J. Sr. and Sherry E. McCall, Brilliant little sister, Nathasha S. McCall, paternal Grandparents William R. and Leatrice R. McCall, wonderful Aunts and Uncles and a whole mass of very cool cousins.

Ronald’s maternal Grandparents, Jeremiah J. and Johnnie M. Whetstone along with his uncle William R. McCall Jr. preceded him in death.
