Ronnie was born on August 24, 1946 to John Thomas Bennett and Velma Ruth Welch Bennett in Monroe, Louisiana and passed away on Wednesday, May 1, 2024 at his home in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Ronnie graduated from Ouachita High School and attended Louisiana Tech University. His thirst for knowledge and hard work paved the way for a successful career in corporate insurance that spanned for many years.

Ronnie had a wide range of interests and hobbies. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, dirt track racing as well as NASCAR. He was also a big LSU football fan. His green thumb was evident in the bountiful garden he nurtured with great care. Ronnie will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.
