 Dr. Ronald Storer McMullen was a professor and spent nearly his entire professional life as an educator. His entrepreneurship students went on to launch many successful businesses, and he had won most popular professor by student vote at Quinnipiac University. He was an avid movie fan, game player, and traveler, and loved listening to music. He greatly enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, all of whom made him proud.
