Not sure what to say?

So sorry for your loss. I just found out about Ronnie from the Shells. My husband Kenny and I went on golf trips with Ronnie and the gang from Ole Monterey lots of times. When working at AEP I would stop in the market to get lunch and chat with Ronnie about the good old golfing days. Now he is playing golf with Kenny and many more of our golf buddies in heaven. Those memories will last forever for me. I hope your memories of Ronnie will be comforting to your family and friends in the days to...

Our deepest sympathies for the family of Mr Mowles,

We are saddened to hear of your loss. He was a wonderful, charming, energetic, entertaining, funny, sweet man. There aren't enough words to describe such a caring person and will be missed dearly.

I met Ronnie when I was a teenager at the old Orange Market in West Salem. I used to see him all of the time, especially during the summer! He was always so friendly! He certainly never met a stranger! I know he will be missed by so many! My prayers are extended to you all at this difficult time. I am terribly sorry for your loss.

Several days a week on my way home, my mom or dad would take me by the Orange Market. Ronnie was always there and would call my sister and I names to pick at us and we nicknamed him "Pork Chop." It has been many years since I last saw him but that it a fond memory from my childhood. So sorry for your loss.

Cindy Sorry for your lost. Yr dad was a good man. I am going to miss him at Orange Market in the morning and getting the updates on you.

I am very saddened by Ronnie's death. I was at the golf course the day of his passing - he loved golf and the Dudes. What a golfer he was! I am happy that I got to talk to him the day he passed. We went to high school together. God Bless.

Ronnie was one of the nicest men I've ever known. He always greeted with a smile and kind words. He was the face of Orange Market W. Main for so many years. Wayne and I spent many days together in our youth and Ronnie always treated me as one of his own. I will cherish many fond memories of Ronnie. My condolences to the family.

Dear Mowles Family, I am very sad to hear of Ronnies passing. I thought the world of him and hung out many times with him at the Orange Mkt on W main. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
