Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
My memories of Ronnie are of long ago when we celebrated holidays at Grandma's house with the entire family. He was my younger cousin with the happiest of smiles, who always listened and shared his own stories. He became a generous man. a wonderful husband and a great father. He was a son my uncle and aunt would be most proud of and he was a cherished brother to Richard. We will miss you my cousin, Love you, Jack and Bob
