Always caring and concerned for his family. He loved talking to them on the telephone. He was a loving father-in-law to my daughter. He will be fondly remembered for a life well lived. He was loved dearly and will be missed by family and friends. Rest in peace Ronald! You will be gone from our sight but never from our hearts. You have earned your wings and place in heaven.

    Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

    Thessalonians 4:13-14. Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

  12. candle 4Dear Elloie Family,

    I am deeply sorry to hear of Ronald Sr.’s passing. I only met Ronald Sr. a handful of times but recall his kind and gentle nature and welcoming smile. I also remember how fondly Ronald Jr. talked about him and how much he looked forward to their annual trips. Ronald Sr. was clearly a wonderful man who has left a great legacy to his children and grandchildren. I know he will guide you in spirit always, and hope that your memories of him bring you peace. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4.

  17. My first Father’s Day without you💔 it’s only been 4 days and I already miss you so much. I know I shouldn’t be sad, I have my own personal guardian angel looking down on me for the rest of my life. But I just wish I can get one more hug with you, and just one more breakfast dates we use to take, Or just to talk on the phone with you and do our little saying “I love you to the moon and back, and you would say I love you more to the moon and back and back again💛”. I love you soo much Pawpaw, until we meet again my cool breeze New Orleans Grandpa😘💜💛💚😇

  18. My First Uncle that taught me everything from age 13 to 17 yrs old. He taught me about, New Orleans, Jazz music and the pool hall. He would always say, ” Show you Right”. He taught me that we are “Cut from a Different Cloth” Southern Gentleman”. Even though in later years his memory was going, he could still sit and talk with me about N’awlins 60, years ago without missing a year.
    I will miss you Inc, but I know you will be looking down on me.

    Love Always
    Your Nephew

  19. candle 4Remembering Uncle Ronald, family brunches will never be the same. We use to meet you at Coffee Cafe, meet with you at Ma’Dear’s, meet w/you at TAL’S, meet w/you at Mobley’s, Overland Cafe, because breakfast was your thing, if the Lord say so i hope to meet you in Heaven. Forever missed. Never forgotten. Love your niece Kim

  20. candle 3Brother Ronald!! WOW! Where do I begin? I guess that I could start with you welcoming me to TWA as one of their new young, Black pilots! Then you extended your personal friendship and invited me into your home introducing me to your lovely wife Corinne, your children, along with much of the rest of your Family at your subsequent Retirement Party. When my Father passed away in my late twenties, you embraced me and became the big brother that I never had. You were a great listener, very patient and you ALWAYS instilled knowledge and wisdom. It was no secret that you Loved the Lord and I have many memories of your expressions of Gratitude to God! I honestly CANNOT remember you EVER complaining about ANYTHING?! Not even when the hot water went out for two weeks at Jesse Owens Swimming Pool!! God has now called you Home and your Soul has elevated to the next level. Thank you for being one of the Best Friends that I ever had! I will TRULY miss you in this physical realm!! Blessings and Light Brother Ronald!!
