He enjoyed his excursions with his mother, Barbara Lawhon, to the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. Ronnie was also an avid garage and estate sale scavenger, always looking for the unusual. He loved animals, and they loved him. He would stop to pet any stray dog he happened to encounter.

Ronnie will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
