Ronnie attended Texas City High school. He served our country in the Air Force. He served our community as a sheriff deputy for Galveston County. Ronnie worked as a diesel mechanic as well as a driver. Above all he served God, family and friends. He worked hard until he couldn’t work anymore He fought hard until he couldn’t fight anymore. He had faith and love in his heart until his very last breath. He was a gracious man, thoughtful friend, loyal brother, devoted son and a passionate loving father. He left his children knowing what kindness, love and a good work ethic can do for you in life.
“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
