Ronald D. Piercey, 75, of Del City, OK, passed away on May 4, 2021. He was born on January 9, 1946 in Memphis, TN to Ernest C. and Thelma L. Piercey. Shortly after his birth, his family returned to Oklahoma where he resided until his death. Upon graduating from Del City High School, he joined the U.S. Army in 1965. He served with the 3rd Battalion, 30th Artillery as a Field Artillery Basic where he earned sharpshooter status. While in Vietnam, he was injured when his military vehicle hit a land mine. He was given an honorable discharge and received a Purple Heart. Once he returned home from Vietnam, he worked as a civil servant at Tinker AFB. In 1979, he began a career with General Motors, and ended his career with GM when the GM plant in OKC closed in 2006. Ron was an avid OU fan and held season football tickets for over 40 years. It was at one of those games that he introduced his granddaughter to her husband. During football season, he loved to spend time with his only child. At this time, he taught her everything she needed to know about OU Football. He also loved to golf and spend his spare time traveling to see friends and family. He is survived by his daughter, Christie Roush and husband Noel of Winchester, VA; three grandchildren: Shay Mechling and husband Preston, Hollee Evans and husband Hunter, and Ryan Bolger; and 7 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by 3 nephews and numerous great-nieces and great-nephews.

We are called, “daddy’s little girl”. A daddy is every little girl’s first love, Her rock and biggest supporter. Daddies are our number one fans. Daddies are our heroes. Daddies will sit with us to have a tea party or to play with our dolls. Daddies will teach us how to throw a football, play catch, and shoot hoops around the moon. Daddies will race us down the street allowing us to win a race, but only from time-to-time. Daddies will teach us how to drive, and the ins-and-outs of vehicles; How to change a tire, check the oil, fill ‘er up, and to watch for the “light”. Daddies are there to come rescue us because we ignored the “light”. Never skipping a beat to ask, did you ignore the “light”? Daddies are there to wipe away the tears when our hearts are broken by our first love. Daddies are there to pick up the pieces that are sometimes a burden or too heavy to bear; Daddies teach us how to handle those pieces when they are not there. Daddies are there to encourage us to chase our dreams and to reach for the stars. Daddies are there to walk us down the aisle, And as our daddies put our hands into the hand of our new protector—reminding our new love to take care of us and to always be there for us—we wipe away our daddies tears. Assuring our daddies that everything will be okay because we were raised by only the best. Our daddies are there to enjoy and relish in our accomplishments as our dreams come true; Boasting proudly of his little girl, “Look what she can do”. And then, magically one day, our daddies are promoted to another grand title, And now their world is complete.

Thank you for all the wonderful memories. I will never forget them.

Christie, I don't know you or your Dad and you all don't know me, I saw your Dad's obituary in the OKC paper today. I'm so sorry you are going through this, I wanted to send you a note.
I'm a Dad and I have a little girl, probably much like you. She has done very well as a result of her hard work and dedication, like your Dad and you, my Katie is the best thing that ever happened to her Mom and me. I can't tell you how full my heart felt when she was born and then her wedding and then her daughter, my grand daughter was born. I know your Dad is the same. I know after losing my Mom and Dad their hugs last long after the let go. I believe He's waiting patiently for you.

Until we all meet again, May the Lord bless you and keep you and make His face to shine down upon you and give you peace.

Ron was a part of our Jimmy's Egg breakfast bunch. He was always fun to visit with about OU sports teams. He will be missed. Our prayers to Ron's family!
