Uncle Ronnie you will be missed. While I haven’t been in touch in a long time, let me say...you left a mark on my life for sure. I remember you always having a smile on your face. You were one of the absolute funniest people I’ve ever known. Always making everyone laugh. What a great dad, granddad and uncle you were!! Heather tells me we get the double chin from the Curry side...many of us have that lovely feature, LOL!!! I guess she’s right . Rest In peace, dear uncle. You were one cool dude.
