Ronnie was my hero growing up when we lived in Acuff Texas as kids & he still is. He always made me smile and gave great hugs. I will miss you. Your loving Cousin Deena♥️
Ron gave me my first job. I met some awsome people, Claire,Bobby,Kelly,and they taught me some of my early lessons of life. I will never forget all that was done and given to me. Thank you and you will be missed
Susan know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Ron loved you and his dogs. He was always so kind to me and he will be missed by many. Prayers for comfort and peace in the days ahead.

Susan I am so sorry for your loss. You and all of your family will be in my prayers during this very difficult time. Rest in Peace Ron!
There are so many memories that I have with both Ron and Susan. We all celebrated so many birthdays, anniversaries and other happenings.. always remember our times at the ranch.. “meals on wheels”.. ❤️ The thunderstorms in the middle of an argument.. he was one of the best men I have ever known. There was always a story coming.. ☺️ Susan …. Love you dearly my friend.. He will always be watching over you.
Susan I am so sorry about the passing of Ronnie I am going to miss my buddy of course I have missed him since I left but he was such a great guy enjoyed getting to know him my prayers are with you and the family love you guys
Ron was a big man with a big heart, and down to earth. I enjoyed going out to the Channing ranch and working with Ron mending fences or branding cattle. In my experience he was always so calm, even with a couple of crazy teenagers (Bobby R. and me) running around the ranch. Rest In Peace Ron, your presence here on earth will be missed.
My sweet Uncle Ron was by far one of THE BEST men the good Lord ever created. A giant of a man with a kind, loving heart. He loved his tiny dogs as well as his Brahma Bulls, both as pets. I can remember “riding” his legs through my grandmothers house as if he was a carnival ride. Listening to his loving obedient prayers over our family, he taught me how to make gravy in a skillet, he remembered that my son loved the Cowboys when he got an autograph of this guy named Emmitt that he’d never heard of. Everyone was mindful of the size of his body but I will only think of him in terms of the size of his heart and the size of his love! I can close my eyes and see my Grandparents, my Daddy and the other brothers gathered around him in Heaven for an 8 day pst due birthday party overseen by the Creator……what a beautiful sight! Well done faithful servant, well done! I will love you forever Uncle Ron!!!!!
I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve always enjoyed running into y’all at different places and times in our lives since school together. The last being at my 60th BD celebration…. what fun it all was! I’ll be praying for you and the family.
