We share in your loss. Not too long ago he and I had some private discussions regarding the both of us having roots in Booneville MS. Tiger family has lost one of its best. Godspeed, GA.

He loved the University of Memphis more than anything except his family. We lost a great voice, advocate and fan today. Please remember and honor him in that way. Rest in peace dad.

This really sucks. Never met him and he was a strictler, but you could count on him. He will be missed. His heart is beating Tiger blue somewhere.

I am so so sorry to hear this......my sincere condolences to you and your family. I met your Dad at a football function years ago and although we didn't always agree on all things, I did respect and appreciated his passion. He will be able to now be with a lot of tiger fans, players and coaches from the past. RIP Ronnie. God bless.

That is just terrible we lost a great Tiger with his passing. I truly hate to hear that; I very much enjoyed meeting him and seeing him at Tiger Baseball games. My sincere condolences to his family.

I am so sorry to hear this. He and I talked often by PM, and he was my friend. I will miss him very much.

Ronnie was a good man, and one of the best Tiger fans I ever met. My condolences and best wishes to his family, for peace and comfort in such a time.
