Ronald Emil 'Ronnie' Harris

Ron loved life and will always be remembered for that hallmark shining smile and unmovable faith in his Christian walk until his Father called him peacefully home on Saturday morning, September 7, 2013 at the St. Joseph Carpenter House (family at his side). Ron was 52 years young and a native of Oklahoma. He last resided in Rock Wall, TX until moving to Prairieville, LA in 2012 in order to have the love and support of family during his illness and medical treatments.

He continued his faithful walk in Baton Rouge, LA at the Greater New Guide Baptist Church until he was called home to glory.
