ForeverMissed
Ronald Keith Hadley, 68, of Waxahachie Texas, passed away peacefully in his home on May 5, 2021.

Ronny was born on August 20, 1952 in Earth, Texas to Robert and Joyce Hadley.  He and Patti Jo Woods were married on December 1st 1973, at the Justice of Peace in their flannel shirts and denim jeans.

He was baptized in 1975. He loved helping others learn Bible truths and to see the transformation in their lives to serve Jehovah. He was a jack of all trades, however the occupation he enjoyed the most was landscaping.  At the end of the day, you could always see a smile of satisfaction over his hard work.

Ronny was preceded in death by his father Robert Hadley, his Mother Joyce Tucker and son Justen Hadley.  Ronny is survived by his wife Patti Jo Hadley, son Kaleb Hadley, daughter Anna Young and her husband Noah, his grandchildren Ethan, Jude, Mia, Van, Liam and EllaClaire.

To all our dear friends, we want to thank you for fulfilling Proverbs 17:17 which says, “A true friend shows love at all times and is a brother who is born for times of distress.”

It's been many years since I have seen Ron, but as I attended his Memorial Service today, I was moved by the memories shared. In fact, those memories recalled many of my memories of the way he was. The love he displayed in his daily life was very powerful. It was a pleasure to be able to serve Jehovah with him. I agree with the speaker that Ron was a Prince among men. There is certainly no doubt that he will be remembered by Jehovah when it comes time to call back from the grave those whom He loves. My love and condolences to you Patti, and all your family.

Your family is so special to me and always will be. Patti, you and Ronny helped get us through the worst time in our lives. I wish I could give you even a portion of the encouragement and love you two have shown us. Anna, you have always been special to me since the moment I met you. I know that you all have a big ole hole in your hearts right now. Fill those holes with love and memories and before you know it you’ll be waking your sweet guy up. Can you imagine how excited he’ll be to wake up in Paradise with a whole, perfect body amid beautiful gardens and bountiful fruitage and surrounded by his WHOLE family and tons of friends? I can see his big smile. I love you all and can’t wait to introduce you to my little temper tail after resurrection. ❤️❣️

Ronny was a good man and a great father. I have known his family for many years now and it was a privilege to get to share some moments with him. Ronny was a caring and kind person with a strong work ethic. He passed too soon and will be sorely missed…

Your dad was such a beautiful man and a dear friend we just always have connected and I will miss him terribly I still remember conversations we had and laugh all the time !!!
I know that he wouldn't want us to be sad about this but want us to look forward to when we can laugh in that new world that we all are waiting for...he is one of the strongest and bravest men I've ever known in my life and his example will shine bright for me to walk ahead , to imitate his dedication his hard-working ethic and his love for his family he truly was a man's man I have been so blessed to have known him and couldn't imagine my life without his shining example and a brilliant smile he always had I thank you and Jehovah that I have known him!!!!

The whole family will forever be in my heart. Ronny's story of how he met Patti is still my favorite of all time. A true love story. Just like you I look forward to seeing his and Justen's smiling faces in the new world. Love, hugs, and prayers for your comfort!
