Ronnie was a country boy through and through and was gifted by his Creator with brains and brawn. Ronnie always gave glory to God for his many creative ideas and for the abilities to see his visions to fruition. Ronnie loved life and looked forward to eternity in Heaven with Jesus his Savior. He enjoyed listening to Gospel, Bluegrass, and Country music. Ronnie and Yvonne attended Southmayd Baptist Church together. He was a devoted Christian man, who was very strong in his faith, and lived it for others to see.
Ronnie was loving, kind, funny and never met a stranger. He was a tender and devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and a cherished son, brother, and friend.
Ronnie’s love of gardening began in childhood and continued to be nurtured by Frances, his mom, throughout his life. Victor, his dad and friend, taught Ronnie how to work in the oilfield as a teenager, it was a career that Ronnie continued as an adult.
Ronnie especially enjoyed traveling with his wife, Yvonne, gathering with his large family, cooking, farming, and fishing with his grandchildren. He loved spending time on rivers, whether they were in Texas or Alaska. Ronnie looked forward to his frequent lunch meetings with his close friends, discussing work projects and solving problems. He wife affectionately called them the “Commonsense Club.”
