    Ronnie, was a great man, loved his family. He was our fork lift mechanic for many years and we all loved to see him coming, even when we had equipment broke down. He and I enjoyed talking about high school football, I believe his son was the same age as mine, they never played against each other in high school but we loved swapping stories about Friday nights. He talked about his kids, grandkids and his awesome wife all the time. A Great Man and will be truly missed by all that knew him. Heaven gained a good one!

    To Our Beloved Ronnie,

    God saw you getting tired
    And a cure was not meant to be.
    So he put his arms around you and whispered , “Ronnie, Come to Me”.

    With tearful eyes we watched as you slowly passed away.
    As your heart stopped beating and your hard working hands lay to rest.
    God broke our hearts to prove to us.
    He only takes the best.

    Those we love remain with us
    for our love itself lives on,
    And cherished memories never fade.
    Even though you now are gone.

    Our love for you will never be
    more than a thought apart,
    For as long as there is memory,
    You will live on in our hearts.

    We may never understand why it was your time to leave us, but we find peace in knowing your watching over us from above. Little brother we love you!

    RIP Ronnie until we meet again!

    Love always and forever,
    Brenda and James

    Rhonda, I’m so sorry for your loss of a great partner and friend. Ronnie was always upbeat and could make you laugh during the most trying times. I worked with Ronnie, even when I was no longer employed at LTSC… was always a pleasure to run into him when we were out on the road. Prayers for you and your family during this sad and difficult time.

    Ronnie was a great friend and neighbor. He was always there if you needed him. We cannot believe we lost him so fast. If you knew him, you loved him. We loved him so much. We feel the same about Rhonda and the whole family. We will always miss him. Love you! Bobby and Brenda
