I am so very sorry to hear of Ronnie’s passing, Amy. I would be there in person to, in some small way, share the grief so many are feeling; however, I am advised to stay away from gatherings due to my age and asthma. I will continue in prayer and loving thoughts for you and your family. Sincerely Valeria Reynolds

Thoughts and Prayers

I was stationed with Ron in Hawaii, and my wife Kathy and I knew Ron and Amy. In a time like this, there are no words that can capture the loss and sadness that your family is facing. Kathy and I hope that maybe the little things that we remember—his smile, laughter, and of course his great sense of humor, will help your family through this most difficult time.

Kathy and Tim Burress


So many memories and love for Ronnie and his family that no words could ever express. Love and comfort to those who are hurting. God bless!

Sorry for you loss…

I met Ron while stationed in Hawaii at Schofield Barracks. We were in the 81mm Mortar Platoon together and he was always willing to help people out and had a great talent of making people laugh. We lost touch over the years but I have so many great memories of him it’s like we never lost touch. My heart goes out to the entire Brooks family.


I served with Ron in Schofield Barracks, HI in the 81mm Mortar Platoon. He had a great sense of humor and was an all around great guy. Though I haven’t seen him in years, he will always be my brother. My sincere condolences to the entire Brooks family.
