Pls accept our deepest sympathy at this very difficult time. God needed someone to brighten the path to heaven more and he called on Ronnie to do it. He is with my Uncle Aubrey and Aunt Ida now. He will be well cared for and much loved as he was here on earth. I will miss that flip of the hand from him when we met ( whether I was walking or driving) and seeing his truck go by so often. I am so proud to have had him in my life and in my family. He will be missed by all who knew him. He was a great guy. Hugs to you and Spencer.

We are sorry to learn of Ronnie’s passing. I remember Ronnie visiting our house to do electrical work. It seemed as if it only took a short time to complete the work,but he and Dad would sit and talk for hours. I know my Dad considered Ronnie a special person in his heart.
Please know that you are in our thougts and prayers.

Suzanne & family….we are so sorry to hear of Ronnie’s passing.He will be missed by family and friends greatly. The last time that we saw Ronnie was when he came back to the farm to buy my Gibson guitar. He was just like a little child at Christmas time with a new toy. I know it gave him great pleasure when he was with his friends playing music, and we will still hear him in the soft gentle breezes that blow from the heavens….
