Ronald was preceded in death by his parents, Audrey and Virginia Dewberry, and his twin brother, Donald Ray Dewberry.

Ronald loved driving a truck, embracing the freedom of the wide-open highway, and the beauty of the many states and scenic trips he experienced. His passion for the road was paralleled by his love for Auburn University football, a devotion that brought him both excitement and camaraderie. Ronald was also an avid horseshoe player, enjoying the simple pleasures of friendly competition and the company of his friends and family.

Those who knew Ronald will remember him as a man who never missed an opportunity to make others laugh. His generosity knew no bounds, and his presence was a source of comfort and happiness.

Ronald’s humor, warmth, and selflessness will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to cross paths with him. As we say goodbye to this remarkable man, we take comfort in knowing that his legacy will continue to inspire and uplift us.
