Ronnie worked for many years at GNB, Clifton Grain Elevator, Sears Warehouse and Stronghold Construction.  He loved to be outdoors fishing, hiking, biking, storm chasing and simply enjoying nature’s beauty.  He was a lifelong White Sox and Chicago Bears fan.  He never missed a Chicago Bulls Championship celebration in Grant Park or a good Blues Fest.  He was an excellent Pool player and enjoyed playing in a men’s softball league for many years.   He truly loved getting dressed up, wearing a suit and hat to every Holiday or family event.   Ronnie was the life of every good party and a friend like no other.

He was preceded in death by both of his parents and grandparents, his oldest brothers James Alfred and Larry Wrye, a brother-in-law James Larry Robinson, and special cousin Rob Graham.
