Ronnie spent most of his life farming with his father and his brother Billy. He then moved to Vegreville where he retired. Ronnie was a very kind and friendly person with a gentle spirit to all those who knew him. He loved to spend time with family, friends and neighbors by visiting and playing cards. Ronnie spent lots of time with his nieces and nephews, who were a huge part of his life. He loved to travel to Canmore and Radium with his special friend Cecile to holiday and visit. In his younger days, he was an avid pool and shuffleboard player, winning many trophies. He fought a difficult battle the last two months and showed such strength and perseverance.
