Ronald was born August 5, 1948 in Lafayette, Louisiana. He was a long time employee of Lafayette Woodworks and for the past 25 years up until his death, he owned and operated the Northgrove Trailer Park in Lafayette.
Although Ronald worked long hours, he always made time to spend with his large family while enjoying an abundance of good food and Cajun camaraderie. As in many self-owned businesses there were challenges along the way. His love for doing his job and meeting people were incorporated in the many stories he liked to tell. Many serious, most comical.
Ronald’s family feels that he is celebrating with loved ones lost and wish to convey a sense of resting in peace to their brother, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
A rosary will be prayed by Sister Doris Roy at 6:30 p.m., Friday, November 24 in the funeral home.
Visitation is from 3-9 p.m., Friday and from 9 a.m. to the time of services on Saturday.
