Ronnie and I had 12 years of going to the same schools from South Park Elementary, to Bingman Elementary, to Mac Arthur Junior High, then on to South Park High School. We played tennis in school together under the direction of Coach Carl Dillon. We had many good times with Linda at dances, vendors open houses and getting together with some of the other school friends. He will surely be missed. Rest peacefully, Ronnie

To the entire Barrow family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. My heart is aching for all of you. I remember when Tammy, Monte, and Keith, and I were little kids. I would come over on Sunday mornings to go to church and your Dad would have his gospel music playing. He would sing and I couldn't help but smile. I still to this day know all those songs because he played and sung them. I will always have a special place in my heart for him and your entire family. God bless you all.

To you all, Uncle Ronnie will be greatly missed. Unfortunately since our adulthood our families have been separated more then the old days. This saddens me ,but you all are always on my mind. I love you very much. I remember those good ole days together at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Roger Swayback football with Uncle Ronnie as QB, , Camping and many other activities that we all did around our Grandparents. The loss of uncle Ronnie is so sad especially in these times of our distance from each other. He was a kind and great man to all he came to be with. He was a great talker, I always enjoyed talking with him so much. He was a great husband and father, he was a great grandpa to all of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. From the old days of him yelling at the referees on TV bowl games during holidays to attending Church with him. Family events were always so fun with his presence. I am so heart broken. I love you Aunt Linda .I will continue to pray for your strength and understanding now that he is gone. He will always be with you all at every sporting and family event because he left you all with so many great memories to hold on to. I am sorry we will not be attending his final farewell, but due to this awful virus, I hope you all understand. I'm here if you need anything. I love you all!, Kinde Regards, Chuck and Jamie Hunsucker

I have so many good memories of Ronnie (who never met a stranger). We were both Greenies, then our paths crossed with soccer and I can not fail to mention he was a fabulous dancer. His family and friends will miss his warmth and compassion., he was a good person.
