Ronnie was a little league coach at Oakdale Playground for many years. He loved to fish and hunt and spent many days at the camp in Grand Isle, and hunting season in north Louisiana, but his first love was always his family.
Ronnie or also known as “Paw”, was at times a quiet many, but he had an unbelievable silly sense of humor he often used. Throughout his entire life, he devoted himself to his endless love for family.
Paw was our hero and the best role model. If we needed advice, he was the one we always turned to. He was the best husband and father, the greatest man we were ever blessed to have. Although Ronnie peacefully passed, he will continue to live through his adoring family. We will feel his loss and carry him in our hearts every day.
