Owner, RPC & Services
Ron grew up in Washington D.C., graduated from St. Joseph’s Catholic Military School in Clayton, Delaware. During his time there he rose to the rank of Captain, the second highest rank in the school.
He joined the U.S. Navy in 1972 after he began experimenting with drugs. He received a ‘General Discharge under Honorable Conditions’ from the Navy in 1975. His drug use increased once he returned home.
For the next 23 years, he tried unsuccessfully to control his drug use. He has numerous arrests on record for drug possession and theft. As a result, he has spent a considerable amount of time in jails and prisons.
He eventually surrendered and sought help. He was 44 years old when he entered The Baltimore Station in 1997. He learned how to get clean and more importantly; how to stay clean.
The General Manager of the Home Paramount Pest Control branch in Annapolis took a big risk and hired him after hearing his story. Two years later Ron was promoted to Service Manager in the office which generated over 2 million a year.
He remained heavily involved in the activities at Baltimore Station and was invited to join the Board in 2001. He has always been concerned about the men coming into Baltimore Station. He wanted them all to know that regardless of their history, they can turn it all around.
Ron left Home Paramount in 2003 to work for Mr. Bob Voelkel. He started the program Jobs, Housing, and Recovery or JHR as it was widely known.
Ron was the first Program Director at the Carrington House. He left that position after almost 2 years to start JHR Pest Control. In 2008 he left JHR and started Ron’s Pest Control or RPC & Services as it is known today.
Since 2012 RPC & Services has averaged over $475,000 annually.
In 2014 John Friedel called Ron and invited him back to the Board of Baltimore Station. He accepted and although he is not as active as he once was, he is still very passionate about the men recovering at Baltimore Station.
