Ronnie was a great friend and will be missed dearly.
My best memory was when Pat Flores, myself played basketball against Ronnie and Thomas Trevino. I was playing with a missed up leg and we still beat them. I'm pretty sure we had a bet going, we had a great time.
Also the time we played football in Amarillo, the Cactus Rats, won that game too. Ronnie was our QB.
Miss you my friend.
