  1. Ronnie was a great friend. He never had a bad thing to say about anyone. He always had a joke or story that could make me laugh. Whether it be at the VFW, at Carl Whites garage, or helping load/unload food for the area foodbank I shared a lot of good times with him. He will be missed. All the family is in my thoughts and prayers.
