I knew Ronnie since the days of East Tennessee Transportation over 17 years ago. He was always a happy cheerful person that just enjoyed life and was glad that he had a great career and friends at Southeastern Freight lines! To all his trucking friends I hope you have many happy memories to help you thru this sad time.
