As a child I remember Uncle Ronnie as being this larger than life person. Someone who never showed weakness. The older I grew I began to understand that behind that deep voice was a wonderful person who always put other people first. He never said I love you but you knew he meant it with his actions. Well Uncle Ronnie I love you too, I'll see you when I get there.
Aunt Vonda thank you for bringing this wonderful man into our family, he was more than just an uncle to me. I love you both, Nikki

To Vonda and the sons
Ronnie and I spent many hours together at DuPont and when you spend that much time with someone you form a bond.
Ronnie and I got in many arguments but we also enjoyed each others company especially when we were alone..
I know he will be dearly missed and I will miss him also.
Rest in peace my friend

Very sorry to hear of Ronnie's passing. To Vonda, his sons, and his extended family, as well as his many friends, my condolences. I always enjoyed talking to Ronnie, and although I saw him rarely in recent years, his death is still a loss. Take care.
