Ronald F. Nordine

Ron Nordine was born in Jamestown, New York on December 29. His parents came to the United States from Sweden: his dad from the northern part and his mom from around Stockholm. Ron has an older sister; she was fifteen when he was born. As a kid, they had a number of cats and one dog. Ron has one son, one daughter, and one granddaughter. 


After graduation from high school, Ron joined the Navy. After training and schooling in Chicago, he became a communication electronics technician. Ron always wanted to create items of wood; he later had his own construction business: RFN Builders, Inc. 

Ron has been married to Stephanie for 5 years. They were married at LFUCC. Stephanie left her position at Walgreens to be Ron's caregiver after his cancer diagnosis and multiple surgeries since 2018. 


What are some of your favorites: food, music, movies, role models?

My favorite food is Louisiana seafood. I love the movie "Long, Long Trailer". My favorite song is “I’d like to make it with you” by Bread. My grandfather was my role model.  

What are some of your hobbies and favorite pastime activities?

I love to build things, fix things, and work with my hands. I also like music. I used to play in a band called Sauve Road Band.


I am always ready to help out at church in any way I can. I have basically retired from contracting now. The Sunday School building was built with me as the quiet contractor and another member of the church as the noisy contractor. The last major thing for the church was removing the choir loft platforms. 

What is one of your goals?

My dream for my life is to keep my life for the church, my wife and my son and daughter. God will be in charge of when it is time to be taken to new life.   

What do you love about LFUCC?

I have been a member of this church for over 40 years. I have served on the church council in just about every capacity. I love this church and its members. I look at this church as if it is my family. I love to be in the church. I am so happy to be back in church after my surgery. I love to be in worship and see all of the smiling faces.
