Ronnie played the guitar and was self-taught on many instruments.  He loved to pick and play bluegrass music.  He was a mechanic by trade.  Other interests included being a pilot, raising cattle, horses and gardening.  He could do anything he set his mind to.  Ronnie loved his girls and they loved him.

The family would like to thank Christus Coushatta for the care given to their father.  They were wonderful to Ronnie and the family allowing them to be by his side during his illness.  Special thank you to his favorite nurse, Sherry.  You were a godsend to the family and your hugs and kindness will never be forgotten.  Thank you to the respiratory staff, Carla and Ashley.  Thank you to Dr. Coleman, Dr. Carter and Dr. Trosclair.  The whole staff was outstanding, and the family is so thankful.

Ronnie has the best friends; they visited often.  Thank you Richard, Curtley, Sis, Sammy and John Alexander, Patrick Gobep and Barry Wyatt.  Thank you to the many friends and family who called and checked on us during this time.  You will all be forever remembered.
