  1. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Ronnie was a great friend in high school and we enjoyed some great football wins.

  2. Ronnie was a great friend and we loved him very much. We always loved talking with him and he will be missed.

  3. To Ronnie’s precious family – my thoughts and prayers are with you. There are so many memories of good times at Plantation with Ronnie – he was “one of a kind” – a special guy.

    God bless – Joy Johnson

  4. I enjoyed seeing Ronnie again and talking with him at our CGLHS 45th class reunion last year. I remember him as a friend and fellow athlete, although he was truly an athlete! I’m sure he has found Coach Jenkins by now and they are discussing that defensive team of 1964, which still holds the record for most shutouts in a season for a Central Gwinnett Black Knights team. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  5. I am a Kinder Morgan employee as well as Ronnie was, and even though I haven’t had the privilege and honor of meeting Ronnie, I would have loved to have met him. I am so sorry about your loss, and may God bless you.

  6. Ronnie you will truly be missed by all of the family. You hold a special place in my memories and heart. Knowing you were the first to hold Sharon after she was born and that smile on your face when you did, is priceless. We have always loved you through the years. We will miss you greatly.

    Love to you Diane. We will be there for you whenever you need us.

  7. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I will always remember his incredible feats on the football field at CGHS! Thinking of you Sue.

  8. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family. Ronnie was a very good neighbor, will be missed. Diane we will be there for you.

  9. My prayers are with the family. I worked with Ronnie for 31 years and never met a more genuine person. I didn’t know about his football team, but I can imagine what kind of football player he was because when he was confronted with a problem at work, he never gave up, you could always count on him to keep plugging away until the problem was solved.

  10. May God bless this family. I enjoyed many years of working and golfing with Ronnie. His friendship will be missed.

  11. I worked with Ronnie for more than 30 years. He was the unsung hero at Plantation’s control center more times than I can recall. And, he never quit until the problem was solved.

    He was a good friend at home and at work. His influence is not only in my memory, but also in the code that continues to cycle through pipeline computers every second of every day. God speed Ronnie.

  12. Ronnie and I have known each other since before 1960. We played together almost every day when growing up. Although we hadn’t seen each other for several years, I saw Ronnie at our recent class reunion. We had planned to get together soon. I am are so shocked and saddened by his passing and will miss surely him. May God bless Ronnie’s family.

  13. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the family. I worked with Ronnie for many years and counted it as a great honour to call him a friend. Ronnie made my work life so much better because of all of his help and knowledge. As a person I he was nice and funny and very personable. I am very saddened by his lost. My prayers and thoughts go out to his family and other friends.

  14. Kathaneeta, I am sorry I wasn’t able to come to the funeral home with Van, but I want you to know I have been thinking about you. I lost my little brother to a stroke two years ago, and it is a harder loss than I ever thought it could be. May God comfort you and all of Ronnie’s family during this painful time.

  15. Kathaneeta and Sue and Family: I am so sorry to hear about Ronnie. I have many memories of our days in school on the hill and at Central. It was great seeing Ronnie this summer at the class reunion. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

  16. We were sorry to hear about Ronnie. We
    both went to school with Ronnie and he was a fun person to be around. Glad he made it to the class reunion this year. He looked great! Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
