Ronny was a man full of love, who graced the world with his presence. He lived a life with many titles, positions and roles, all of which he played very well. But those that came with the forests and lakes, where he wandered, would forever be his favorite. His hands crafted many things and held many children, all of whom he loved. His smile uplifted the Heavens and his laughter replenished the soul. We can all be comforted in knowing this man will forever shine down on those he left behind with the hope of better days to come. The legacy he left behind will continually bloom into a flower of great beauty, which will continue to grow with every waking breath. He will be missed and never forgotten. Rest in peace, to the man who set out on the journey of life and lived every moment to the fullest.

As per Ronny's wishes there will be no viewing or funeral services.
