Ronnie's life was a testament to the strength and resilience of the human spirit.

He shared 47 beautiful years of marriage with his beloved wife, Vicky Ramos Robbins.

He also held a special place in his heart for his "nieces," Lynn and Leigh, who brought additional joy and laughter to his days.

A patriot at heart, Ronnie proudly served his country in the Army before embarking on a career as a machine operator at Commonwealth Bolt. His commitment to his work was matched only by his dedication to his faith. Ronnie was a man who lived to serve God, maintaining a prayer and faith journal that was a source of comfort and guidance to him and an inspiration to others.

Ronnie's interests were as varied as they were passionate. He was an outdoorsman who loved to hunt, fish, and camp, reveling in the beauty of nature and the simplicity of a life well-lived. His adventurous spirit found joy in the thrill of playing video games and the creativity of building with Legos. These hobbies provided not only personal enjoyment but also opportunities to connect with younger generations and share his zest for life.
