Larry thought a lot of him. I remember the banjo most when they played at Red's. Good Times!

I knew Ronnie during our school years and also while working at Archer Creek in the 80’s. I’ll always remember him as one of the nicest people I’ve ever known. I never saw him without a smile. R.I.P. Ronnie.
