Ronnie was born on November 26, 1945, in Graham to the late Alan Walker and Louise Hutchison Berry. He grew up in Iowa Park surrounded by family, close life-long friends, and many pets along the way. He worked behind the counter of Berry Drug, his mom and dad’s pharmacy, where he became the world’s best gift wrapper and milkshake maker. He participated in many sports throughout school, loved his friends and was named “Mr. Iowa Park” his senior year. After school he had the opportunity to travel as far as Greece after joining the United States Navy. Upon discharge, Ronnie settled in Fort Worth where he worked for the railroad and eventually Coors Distributing. In 1980, he met and married Ginger Howard Terry. This union brought with it a new role: father to Amy. He jumped in and dedicated himself to his new family with patience, an incredible sense of humor, loyalty, and immeasurable amounts of love. After a back injury, Ronnie moved his family to Iowa Park where he had the opportunity to work for close family friends, Judge and Bobbie Shaw at Shaw Ford. As the years passed, Ronnie found himself working again for Coors, moving back to Fort Worth, losing his beloved wife, becoming a grandfather, enjoying friendships and retiring. With retirement, a new chapter began for Ronnie and his brother Malcolm. They moved into an inherited family home in Graham where they spent 8 years with their precious dog, Priscilla, supporting and taking care of each other. After Malcolm’s death in 2019, Ronnie moved to Trophy Club to be close to his daughter and grandkids. He spent his last years playing dominos with Quinn, supporting Tate’s love of sushi, attending Ford’s concerts, Lily’s games and watching Gracie thrive at TCU. He was loved by all who knew him.
Ronnie was preceded in death by his wife, Ginger; brother, Malcolm; mother and father, Louise and Alan; and niece and nephew, Shannon and Scott.
