GREENVILLE – Ronald William Walden, who was born in 1935 and passed away Dec. 11, 2013, was many things throughout his life. He was a husband, a father, a brother, and a grandfather. He was a man of God, never overlooking his faith. He was a friend to many, and an inspiration to all. Ronny had a lot of love in his heart, and he never hesitated to share that love with all people in his life. Through all of his life experiences, through everything he was and all the relationships he held so dear, there was one phrase that Ronald Walden lived by, a phrase that sums up his life in the colorful manner he so desired:
I Like To Color Outside The Lines.
Ronald Walden, that ol’ fuddy duddy, was a man of family, love, and faith. That is how he will be remembered: By his family and friends, with love, in faith.
A memorial service will be held in the spring of 2014 in Greenville. The date has yet to be determined.
Contributions may be made in his name to Good Will Hinckley School, which held a special place in Ronald’s heart or the Greenville Junction United Methodist Church Steeple Fund.
