Dear Kevin, Holly & Ryan,
Sorry that you are missing a very special member of your family. It's good to know, that special son Ronnie, was blessed with such a loved up-bringing from his own family and so much love from so many friends. As Ronnie's Meemaw, I pray that he will continue abiding by the truth as stated in John 14:6 "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life". May you find rest in Gods peace knowing Ronnie is with our Lord Jesus. I Love you all so much.

Someone Like Me

When I was young and living in a world under thee
I would ponder the reason to be
With confidence of your promises to me
I was not what I thought I should be
The way up was always in thee
I found my life when she introduced you to me
He came to us with looks of who me?
I knew I had found someone like me
His ways were longing for what he can see
Our lives were changed with voices of glee
He grew and grew and our love grew indeed
We were proud and hopeful of what your life was to be
Then asthma released its hardship on thee
So we pulled together and said lets see
Your life can be as full as you want it to be
With pride in our hearts and thank God to thee
For watching over someone like me
You grew and grew your life like a tree
Spreading out and shading many lives with your leaves
Your good nature and laughter and times was the seed
You shine in our hearts of family and friends with glee
Your fruit of all, who came to see
But God has His timing and we don’t always see
The reasons your not with your mom and me
His love is so strong even in the storms of the sea
When lifes great losses bring you to your knees
We will forever miss you I hope you can see
The tears continue to fall like leaves off your tree
Hey Ronnie its Dad and I will miss you and me
Just laughing and talking about the birds and the bees
Your love we feel and always will be
From you our son who is someone like me
I know you would say don’t worry your hearts forever about me
For it was Gods timing for He set me free.

What a guy... Ronnie always had a smile on his face and a laugh in his heart. I think back to all the fun we had growing up on the weekends out at Hidden River. Running through the mud at “Peach Creek”, climbing trees care free, feeling like we were out in the middle of the wild and only being 100yards from the house. He was a good friend, a good cousin and a good son. He loved his family and we love him.
He will always be our Ronnie “Roo”.
Love you. Praying for you daily.

Ronnie Eskew was a wonderful son, brother nephew and grandson.. He lit up the room wherever he went with his bright smile and easygoing personality.

He was also a huge Tampa Bay sports fan and loved cheering on the Rays and the Buccaneers, but his favorite was the Tampa Bay Lightning which when you think about it makes all the sense in the world for Master Electrican with a neon smile!

Ronnie loved his family and his many friends and touched our lives with his..Some spirits burn brighter than others and That was Ronnie..

We will miss him terribly in the physical sense but will feel his presence in the bright sunshine, at Breakfast on the Beach and in the glow of Christmas Lights

I’m Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

God bless Ronnie Richard Eskew!

Ronnie was a best friend to me when I didn’t have any friends at all. He basically took me under his wing and taught me how to wire a home. I remember strictly getting an iPhone because he had one so I could FaceTime him and learn from him on how to wire things. He was a big brother when I needed advice, a friend when it was party time, and a mentor when it came to my electrical work. He always pushed me to be a better person at work and at home. My daughter Naomi loved Ronnie they made so many jokes back and fourth and she could go joke for joke with him just like she was part of the group despite only being 4 when he first met her. I have missed him everyday and wish I would of spent more time with him this last year but it’s been rough with Covid. I have so many memories but my favorite memory with Ronnie would be doing fantasy football putting together a league and running it. He was such a part of my everyday life just texting being brothers I love him and miss him so much already they say god has a plan for everybody I know it’s not right to question god but this I don’t understand. The picture of us was my 26th birthday at Top Golf in Tampa which was also an awesome time! I love and miss you buddy you will forever live on through me and your family and friends. I know if there is a heaven u smiling looking down on me saying Cody I miss ya and love ya too. Blood could not of made us no closer.
