He was a very kind hearted man who loved his family and friends and would do anything for them. His twinkling blue eyes, quick wit, and his giggle will be missed by all.

Leatrice, I was so saddened to hear about Ronnie's passing. Even tho we weren't very close, he was always my good looking cousin who lived across the street. My thoughts and prayers.
