InfoRonald Strahle was born in Stanton, Nebraska in 1921. After graduating from Stanton High School in 1939, he enrolled at the University of Nebraska where he earned his A.B. and law degrees. During World War II, he served in the United States Marine Corps in the Pacific theater. In the Korean War, he was a special agent with the Army Counter Intelligence Corps (1951-1952).

From 1952 to 1953, he worked on the personal campaign staff of Dwight Eisenhower, and in 1956, he was named chairman of the Colorado Youth for Eisenhower. Strahle served as a member at-large on the Colorado Game, Fish, and Parks Commission from 1963 to 1966, and was chairman in 1966. During this period, Strahle was also a member of the Fort Collins library board and was a Larimer County public trustee from 1965 to 1966.

First elected to the Colorado House of Representatives in 1966, Strahle served seven consecutive terms as a state representative. In 1968, he was one of 50 legislators chosen on a nationwide basis for a Rutgers University Eagleton Institute seminar for outstanding state legislators. Strahle was appointed to the Council of Advisors on Consumer Credit for a two-year term by Governor John Love in 1974.
