Whether it was sharing a beer with you or lending a helping hand in whatever you needed. He was one of the most generous persons you could ever have the pleasure to meet. Ronnie was also well known for his kindness, calmness of heart, and peaceableness. Although he was not a man of many words, at times you could catch him dancing and singing to his favorite songs without a care in the world, regardless of who his audience was. Again, you’re a very blessed person if you were a part of one of these privileged occasions.
