He was very proud and honored to serve and protect this community. Ronnie was first and foremost a loving and devoted father and son. He was a very loyal friend to many. He was always smiling and willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle, playing sports and watching NASCAR. Ronnie always wanted to be a police officer “just like his dad” he would say. He started his career with the Washington State Patrol in 1997, graduating from the WSP academy’s 83 basic training class. He worked with the Washington State Patrol until 2004, when he then began working for the Lakewood Police Department. During his 12 year career, Ronnie was awarded several police commendations recognizing his work ethic, determination and dependability. The deaths of Ronnie and his partners were senseless and tragic, leaving so many families, friends and fellow Officers in shock and disbelief. We love him, miss him and will never forget him.
