Ron was a great man. Fantastic co-worker. He had a calming presence about him. I never seen him get angry or say anything unkind about anyone. He will be missed and I will always have many fond memories of him. Condolences to his family.

Ronnie will always share a special place in mine and my family's heart. He and Elwanda were a huge part of my childhood and adulthood as were the entire Abney family. I have fond memories of sitting on the front porch with them all on Elliott Ave talking, laughing and watching the world go by. They were kind, generous, and decent people that have made my world better for knowing them. Rest in peace Ronnie! For the family, may peace and love be with you during these sad times.
With much love and respect, Bruce Davis and Family
