Ronnie was born in Houston, Texas. In his youth he attended North Shore High School, where he met many of his lifelong friends, who can tell you all about the trouble he used to get into. He was inducted into the Army at the age of 21 and served in the Vietnam War. Throughout his life he was hardworking, intelligent, soft spoken, he had a hearty laugh, and was one of the most giving people you would ever meet. He always wanted to be a preacher and tell people about the word of our lord. God is and was his guiding force during his life. He enjoyed working on different projects around the house from old cars to building his own porch, but always had about 10 projects going at the same time which he rarely finished in the order he started them. His family and friends have always believed if you needed something fixed go to Ronnie, because if he didn’t know how to fix something he would fiddle with it enough to figure it out. He would do all that he could to help everyone; neighbors, friends, family, even strangers on the street, he was always willing to give everything he could to help anyone. He taught his daughters how to treat others with kindness, their way around a tool box and fixing a flat tire, and to always put Jesus first. He loved to make jokes and get others around him to laugh. He would always say ” you’ll miss my jokes when I am gone”, and that is definitely true.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the VFW Post 5621 in Liberty from 1-4 pm on Sunday, November 6th.
Address: 1520 N Main St, Liberty, TX 77575
