Ronnie was a good friend and neighbor. During his long illness, he has been sorely missed around Ruritan Lake. Not only will my husband and I miss him but so will our sons when they come to visit. Our condolences go out to all who loved this big hearted man.

Ronnie was a friend and neighbor in Fishersville. He played baseball in my back yard. Boy could he smack it! My condolences to the Statton family.

Sad to hear of Ronnie's passing as I will miss seeing him on his four wheeler coming down the old gravel road during hunting season and just shooting the breeze with him. He had a way that you couldn't help but like, may he rest in peace.

Marsha and family, I am so sorry to learn of Ronnie's passing. He was a wonderful co-worker and employee, always eager to do whatever I asked of him. I learned as much from him as he learned from me. Ronnie made going to work fun for everyone who worked with him. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Marsha I pray that God gives you strength and guides you. Ronnie was such a caring sweet guy. He always was the life of the party. Remember the party we had on Druid Ave for Christmas? He was so funny and he had so much fun. We will miss him so much but at least he is at peace in heaven and he will always be looking down on you. If you need us you know we are there for you. We love you both

I just want to thank God, that Ronnie stratton was a friend of mine. I worked with Ronnie @Pennz 10[texaco express lube] Ronnie was the type of a guy that would give you the shirt of his back[a real stand up guy]. One of my fondest memories of Ronnie was him&Marsha came to my wedding& then on New Years day[1999] he came over to my house in Verona, & I fixed him & Marsha breakfast.
I really am gonna miss you, Ronnie. You are in my thoughts and memories forever.
