Ronnie & I met at the Attorney General’s Office In the 1980’s and formed a friendship from early on. We stayed in touch after he moved back home and I recall conversations when he talked about how glad he was to be able to be there to care for his dad. I found out Ronnie had passed away while in Austin April 25th for a friends retirement from the A.G.’s office. Everyone that didn’t know was in shock and instantly saddened. Ronnie brought sincere friendship and laughter to all of us and was genuine in his concern when a confidence was shared. My heart is saddened that Ronnie is no longer in this world. My sincerest sympathies to the family. Rest In Peace Dear Friend.

I would like to express my deepest condolences to Ronnie's family. I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I worked with Ronnie at the Attorney General's office in Austin, Tx. During this time we shared a close friendship and he would always come to my birthday celebrations. When I retired in 2003 we tried to stay in touch but then with our lives going in different directions it was difficult. Then I found out he had moved back to New Mexico to help take care of his father. He was a great friend and will pray for his soul and for his family during this difficult time.
