Ronald Wm. Livers, was born July 20, 1955 in Norristown, Pennsylvania, to the late Lawrence A. Livers, Sr. and the late Barbara (Waldrop) Livers. Ronnie took his final earthly leap into the arms of his Heavenly Father, surrounded by his family, on Saturday, December 19, 2020. We praise God for his amazing life. Ronnie was affectionately known as “Legs”. He was a graduate of A.D Eisenhower High School, Class of 1973. He went on to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Performance from San Jose State University in San Jose, California. Over the years, he served in various capacities at the Carson Valley School, The Pathway School, Lincoln Alternative School, Silver Springs Group Home, Northern Homes for Children, St. Gabriel’s Hall for Boys, Baptist Children’s Services and most recently, Stewart Middle School. His ability to leap seemingly effortlessly, led to the hurdles, high jump and triple jump events in high school, then college and beyond. In high school under the coaching of Coach Bob Shoudt, Ronnie developed and honed his gift. He travelled to San Jose, California, where he continued to achieve great things under the coaching of his big brother, Larry Livers, II, and Coach Ernie Bullard. His athletic achievements took him around the world, and the stories of his travels are never-ending.

Livers, II, Yvonne (Robert) Massie, Rosalyn (James) Owens; Donald (Skylit) Livers; mother-in-law, Nancy Jones; sisters-in-law, Lisa Jones-Jarrett, and Maria Jones; Godson, Adam Johnson; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
