“I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks.”
Ronald D. Lewis (Ronnie) age 80 of Farmers Branch, TX went to be with the Lord on Sept. 27, 2022 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. He was surrounded by family and friends. Ronnie was born in Colorado City, TX on May 23, 1942. He grew up in Big Spring, TX and graduated from Big Spring HS and then attended Howard County Jr. College where he received his associate degree.
Ronnie married the love of his life, Sue Adams Lewis on Feb. 27, 1965. He was a proud father of three daughters Kimberly (Joe) Collins, Tracy (Coby) Farrow and Kristi (Rick) Shipley. He is also survived by a Brother Jerry (Mary) Lewis, sister Martha (Brent) Womack, grandchildren (7), great grandchildren (9), along with many nieces and nephews.
Ronnie was preceded in death by his parents, Stanley and Lena Mae Lewis, and granddaughter, Bailey Mae Farrow.
Ronnie retired from Trane, heating and air conditioning company. As he would say, “You can’t stop a Trane!” He won many top salesman awards for international and light commercial sales while working there. Anyone that knew him, knew he was a true salesman to the core. He had a great work ethic and passion! Ronnie was also very involved with the Lion Club and his church home a Westside Church of Christ in Midland, TX in his earlier years. Later when they moved to Farmers Branch, TX he was involved in the mission work at Walnut Hill Church of Christ for over 35 years. Ronnie and Sue also taught Awana and the 4/5 year old Bible class. He has supported many missionary families and still does today. He believed in the work for the Lord!
Ronnie was a family man and loved them deeply. His daughters, grandkids, and great grandkids loved him deeply. He would tell everyone about his family and how proud he was of them. Ronnie truly had a heart for people. He loved them and wanted everyone to know about Jesus. He was constantly inviting people to church over the years and Ronnie never met a stranger. He has left such a wonderful legacy for his family and friends. Be fishers of men and spread the Gospel. Matthew 4:19 “Come follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”
The family would like to express their appreciation for all the love and support during this difficult time.
