  1. I know this is years late but I just ran across it online.
    I am Mitchell, life long friend of Ronnie. We grew up together, from elementary school thru our Naval service. We lived on the same street, six houses apart, fished and hunted together, and when he got old enough to be trusted in the kitchen, his mother Tiny let him cook the crawfish tails and fish we caught.
    As I recall all of the other childhood friends we ran with, i realize I am the only one left.
    Sure miss Ronnie. He taught me to smoke cigarettes that we snitched from his mother.

  2. Lynn…we were so, so sorry to hear of your loss of Ron. We pray that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will give you peace, comfort and strength during this difficult time. Lynn, just know that we are here if you need anything. Hugs, Valerie & David

  3. How blessed I was to meet Lynn and Ron when Ted became Ron’s roommate!
    I just wish we had met years ago when both “boys” were in their prime. They are having fun in heaven riding trains and fishing and, of course, cooking and watching out for their families.
    Love and prayers, Lynn and family.

  4. I’ll never forget the first time I met “Ronnie”, he came into the grocery store where I worked and talked my arm off. Little did I know I was talking to my future brother-in-law. Always so friendly and nice, he didn’t meet a stranger.My deepest sympathy goes out to Lynn, Robbie, & Sherry.I’ve been thinking & praying for you the last few days. May God bless you and comfort you. I was blessed to know Ronnie and will never forget him. Love, Debbie
