Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce: Meet our Membership

Devt. Vice Chair & Ambassador:
Ron “Ronnie” Veitch
Anti Pest & Veitch, OWNER/OPERATOR

WHAT MOTIVATES ME TO WORK HARD?
Retirement

WHAT IS MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT MY CAREER?
My grandfather started Anti Pest & Veitch 67 years ago and he would take me to work with him as a youngster even before I was in school. I had a pair of coveralls and would go with him under the houses. I’m still doing that today and even though most folks would cringe at the thought, it’s just as natural as can be to me.

WHAT WOULD I SING AT KARAOKE NIGHT?
Beautiful Loser by Bob Seager

DO I PREFER TO LISTEN TO THE RADIO, PODCASTS, OR OTHER?
No.

IF I COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHAT YEAR WOULD I TRAVEL TO?
I would go back to December 6, 1941 and warn everyone at Pearl Harbor.

IF I COULD CHOOSE TO DO ANYTHING FOR A DAY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would be a Gazillionaire and give it all away. Well, all but a million.

WHAT DID I WANT TO BE WHEN I WAS YOUNG?
An Oceanographer.

WHAT’S MY FAVORITE FAMILY RECIPE
My mom makes a dish she calls goulash with hamburger meat, noodles, cheese and corn, and I love it so, that she still makes a casserole dish and gives it to me for my birthday.

WHAT IS MY PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT?
I was a single parent of a 9-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son. Somehow, they have become loving, servant-minded, compassionate members of society and as much as I would like to call that my accomplishment, I know it was only by God’s grace so, good job GOD!
