Truly, I tell you – enjoyed working with Ronnie better than anyone on the railroad. For entertainment value, he sure led the pack. Don’t think the man ever had a bad day. And a God-fearing man to boot. My collage of friends and former co-workers is much less vibrant without Ronnie. God rest his soul; and be with his family.

Remember Jesus weeps when you weep and hurts when you hurt and will never let go of your hand, so hold on to His unchanging hand.

Angie & Tim I’m so sorry for your loss.I’m surely going to miss your dad
I will miss seeing his friendly smile at MOSBY. My sincere condolences to the family and friends. I pray God’s comfort will consume, at this time.
To me Railroad was a man’s man. Of course the brother could sing, however, I am going to miss him more because he promised to take me to the train and let me drive. I guess his time ran short on the track. In addition, Railroad was always telling crazy jokes.
May’s God’s peace be with you during the bereavement of our “beloved ” Brother Hughes. He brought so much to our lives in the last 40 years+. His beautiful ways and abundance of love will forever be missed. He was truly a servant of God. His melancholy, “soothing” voice will be forever embedded in our memories.
A long time friend you will be. truly missed.
