I was fortunate enough to meet Ronald in 1991 while dating his daughter Robin. Robin and I were married in 1994 and I’m am fortunate that Ronald became my father in law. Later after Robin and I were married Ronald told me I was his favorite son in law. After I thought about this for a while it came to me I was his only son in law. I have shared some great times with Ronald in the last 30 years of my life and I’m blessed for it. If you ever wanted to see humility in action all you needed was to be around him for a while. He always wanted to give rather than receive. I’m a better person for having crossed paths with him. I miss him greatly and has been difficult these past few weeks but I take comfort knowing he is walking with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you Ronald for everything with love.

I have so many fond memories of this special cousin but most of all just proud he was a member of our family. My Mom was Ronald’s aunt and we always enjoyed the Brown family visits which were often rewarded with her gumbo. When she passed away Ronald was unable to travel yet Curtis surprised us all by attending her services along with Joyce and Helen. The Brown family have always lived a life of love, respect, and commitment for one another and that included extended family members.

Ronald’s humor and kindness will be missed by all who knew him but especially by his family. Phyllis, special prayers to you and yours during this difficult time. Curtis, condolences to you and your family on the passing of your brother.

There really isn’t enough room here to explain how awesome and loving my Paw-Paw has always been. He really was a one-of-a-kind genuine good-hearted man. When you would go to their house he would offer you every drink and snack they had before he would accept your “no thank you” answer that you didn’t want anything. He always had his little jokes and rhymes. Just at Christmas he looked at me and said, “Simple Simon met a pie man walking to the fair”,,,, and we would laugh and I’d ask him questions about them over the years. We shared the love of art and painting and he loved ole Bob Ross. He’s done so many things and I have so many memories of his love I wish I could share all of them and I am thankful to have those memories forever in my mind and my heart! He will be greatly missed and his favorite granddaughter and great-grandpup Buck will never forget his LOVE! We love you Paw-Paw and we know you are painting some happy trees with Jesus and Bob Ross. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

My uncle Ronald was always a part of my life. My mom was his sister & all the Brown siblings were close... Always.
He & his brother Curtis, together & separately, helped my mom so much in her later years. Plus they always visited her. Just such sweet family love. ♥️
He was an artist & a musician, so enjoying playing his harmonica with my mom playin her organ he'd gotten her. Such fun! He did so many beautiful paintings, too.
I'll miss his sense of humor. He always found humor in everything... I'm so thankful I got to be his niece. He & aunt Phyllis were always so good to Marcie & I when she was growing up.
He had a sweet tooth, seems he always had candy with him! ♥️ &
he loved his family...all of 'em...& his beautiful wife, his kids & those grandchildren (+ greats!).
RIP Uncle Ronald, we were all so blessed to have had you in our lives!!
