Ronnie moved with his family from Albion, Michigan, to Clare County in his teens. He graduated from Farwell High School in 1975. He worked as a truck driver for many years. Ronnie and Eunice owned several businesses in Clare County over the years. The most recent being rental properties. Ronnie’s passion was working on rental houses. He was a one-of-a-kind problem-solver, assisting community friends with any repairs. Even in Ronnie’s final days, he was advising his brother on a water well and his hospice nurse on electrical issues she was having at her house.
The family would like to thank all the friends and family who supported Ronnie in his final days at home. He was a very blessed man to have the support that he had. Ronnie was able to say his goodbyes and every last wish he had was able to be met.
