Rapid Ronnie Runyan born Ronald Dean Runyan in Ogallala, Nebraska on May 10, 1946. A curious child that loved following his dad everywhere, especially at the Chevrolet dealers service shop. The family left Nebraska for California when Ron was nine years old, changing his life from chasing lizards to playing in the streets of East LA. Ron was many things to many people, a son, a brother, friend, uncle, husband, father and grandfather. There are so many adjectives to describe Ron, kind, generous, friendly, modest, intelligent, inventive, humorous, and a strong sense of right and wrong. Not that he always did the right thing. His many accomplishments included professional Funny Car Driver, Trailer Manufacturer, V8 Motorcycle builder, metal fabricator, and pilot. He also loved fishing and water skiing. But most of all he loved being with family and friends sharing stories and having new adventures.
