He was born on December 29, 1944 in Duplin County and was the son of the late Norman and Eva Batchelor Brown.
Ronnie served numerous families for 35 years with Jefferson-Pilot Insurance. After retiring with Jefferson-Pilot, he then went back to work with National Motor Company for 10 years.

Ronnie was a devoted husband and loving father, grandfather and brother. He was a people’s person and enjoyed his work as an insurance salesman throughout the years.

He enjoyed drag racing, golfing and fishing, but most of all he enjoyed spending time with his loving family. Ronnie will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
