Ronnie was born on December 27, 1979 in Burton, the son of Abraham Smith and Bridgette Grandy. Ronnie was very kind-hearted. He would give you the shirt off his back, but he'd also expect two shirts and two rings in return and would respond with "forget about it" in an Al Pacino tone to his voice. He usually had a way with the ladies. He loved to spend time with his friends and family. He liked to have family get-togethers, cook outs, and enjoyed eating tons of good food. He was proud to be Native and enjoyed going to Pow-Wows. He also enjoyed going to the casino. Ronnie always made friends and family laugh and was the center of attention in groups. He was a loving son and brother, who loved his four children and family. He will be missed!
Ronnie is survived by his four children, Aiyanna, Zander, Anna Mae, and baby J; parents, Bridgette and Abraham; 10 siblings; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Ronnie was preceded in death by his son, Alijah; uncle, TJ Smith; aunt, Lynne Boudreau; grandmother, Cecelilia Marie.
