Ronnie served his country proudly and was a veteran of the United States Air Force.  He worked as a Transportation Manager for Beracah Homes of Greenwood, a job he thoroughly enjoyed.  Ronnie was a hard worker all of his life, and whether he worked from sun up to sun down, he made sure he was at home at night to be with his family. 


In years past, Ronnie enjoyed playing ball and fast pitching for the Ruritan.  He also enjoyed boating with his family.  Ronnie was always inquisitive and asking questions.  He was a jack of all trades, and always knew what to do, and usually delegated how to fix it.  He was always a good boss and treated everyone well.  Ronnie's joking personality and love for his family will be greatly missed.


Ronnie belonged to the Union United Methodist Church of Burrsville, and in years past, he was a member of the American Legion, and the Andrewsville Ruritan.
