Ronnie was a member of the First Presbyterian Church. He started working with his father and grandfather at Landry's Automotive Parts when young. After graduating from Southeastern La University he began a lifelong career as an insurance examiner. In his life, he was an avid golfer, fisherman, and runner. Nothing gave him greater pleasure than being with his family and taking them out to dinner or cooking on the grill. He was always there for anyone who needed his help. Ronnie was deeply spiritual, and through good times and bad, always held that life is a precious gift. He will be greatly missed.
