As many of you know, Ronald had a great love for photography and often acted as the family’s photographer and historian. He collected several wonderful albums of family reunions and holiday gatherings. He was an excellent cook, enjoyed going to movies, an avid R&B music lover, and collector of 60’s Motown memorabilia. He was known for his kind and compassionate spirit, especially as he helped to care for his aging parents in their late years.
We will miss you, dear Ronnie…your laugh, inquisitive demeanor, kind conversations, thoughtful birthday and holiday greetings, and so much more.
