Read more about the life story of Ron and share your memory.
Ron Sheffield passed away Sunday, June 4th in the comfort of his home in Eddy, Texas. He was born in Grove Hill, Alabama on June 21, 1954 to Henry and Patsy Sheffield. He met his beloved wife in Dallas and they shared forty-three years of marriage before her passing in 2021. They had a son, Ronnie Langston, and a daughter, Kelly Elayne. He worked in the chemical distribution industry for several decades and made many lifelong friends among his colleagues before retiring to a slower-paced life in the hill country in 2019.
Ron was an extraordinary individual, a blend of quick wit and intellect that left us in awe. His mind was razor-sharp; he could find humor in any situation. Whether through a clever one-liner, a well-timed pun, or a brilliantly crafted joke, he had a way of turning any gathering into a laugh-out-loud affair. He always brought joy and laughter to others.
Beyond his humor, Ron possessed a brilliant mind that was always hungry for knowledge. He was a lifelong learner, an intellectual explorer seeking wisdom and understanding. He read constantly and could engage in meaningful conversations on a wide range of subjects. He had a unique talent for making complex ideas accessible, sparking curiosity, and igniting a love for learning in those around him.
Amidst his intelligence and wit, Ron’s true pride and joy were his roles as a devoted husband and a one–in-a-million father. His love for his wife Patricia was a beacon of light that guided their journey through life. Together, they built a partnership grounded in deep understanding, unwavering support, and laughter that echoed through the years. Their story was a testament to the power of a strong and loving bond, filled with a plethora of inside jokes.
As a father, Ron was a mentor and an endless source of inspiration for his children. He nurtured their minds, encouraged their dreams, and led by example with his insatiable curiosity and creativity. He used humor as a tool to teach life's lessons, using laughter as a bridge to impart wisdom, instill values, and create cherished memories. His children grew up surrounded by love, mirth, and an unwavering belief in their limitless potential.
In addition to his role as a family man, Ron’s impact extended far and wide. He was a beloved friend and a cherished companion. Whether it was a social gathering, a work place meeting or simply a chance encounter, Ron’s infectious laughter had a way of lighting up the room and bringing people together.
Ron is survived by daughter, Kelly Smith and husband Derik; son, Ronnie; granddaughters, Ava and Darcie Sheffield, Millie and Hattie Smith.
Proceeding him in death were his parents; wife, Patricia; and sisters, Flora O’Deh Carder and Nikki Sheffield.
