Ronnie was a 1965 graduate of Lafayette High School. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam conflict. He loved God, his family, and being “Poppie” to his granddaughters. He retired from the oilfield services industry after many years and most recently worked for Weatherford Completion Services in Scott, La. A talented craftsman, Ronnie enjoyed working with wood and marble; in particular, he loved to make crosses for his family and friends. The family requests that anyone who received a cross from Ronnie bring it to the funeral service so it may be blessed at the mass. In 2015, Ronnie was blessed to receive a heart transplant and a second chance at life. Therefore, in lieu of flowers, the family asks that Memorial contributions be made in Ronald “Ronnie” Roy's name to Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency Foundation, 68190 Highway 190 Service Rd., Covington, LA 70433, https://www.lopa.org/ Pallbearers will be Medlock Harbison, Jr., Warren Wiggs, Michael Ducharme, Mitchell Prejean, Paul Choate, and Matthew Johnson.
