Share this Tribute
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Ronnie Cottrell (Opa), 61 left this world for a time to be with Jesus on August 14, 2018. He fought a painful and long courageous battle to be there for the people that needed him. He was very sick and very tired and really needed rest and healing that wasn’t available here.
Ronnie was a huge teddy bear always trying to do the right thing and treat all children made in the image of God with respect and dignity. He has touched every person that ever knew him with a sense that they were greater than they believed. He was a simple man that had the child like faith of Jesus down to a pat.
Ronnie was a peacekeeper and forgave “seventy times seven” time and time again. He stayed as long as he could to prepare all the people that loved him so much for his next journey. But the Lord told him he had suffered and done enough and needed His rest. He had spent his life serving everyone else, and now he is finally at peace watching us and serving us from above.
He is preceded in death by his Mother and Father. He is survived by his wife, two sons, one daughter and six grandchildren who were his life. He will be dearly missed in this world but Heaven gained a true angel.
There will be a celebration of his life is at Eleven Oaks Ranch 21601 Diagnal Road Luther, Oklahoma August 25,2018 at 6pm

Ronnie was a great high school friend who was such a special person! I ran into him a few years ago at a church conference and so enjoyed catching up. He will be missed but I know heaven is rejoicing! Prayers for the family.

It’s been years since I’ve seen Ronnie. I remember him as a happy, kind, gentle person. I am glad to know he was surrounded by a loving family. My sincere condolences to his loved ones.
Betty Willey says
Ronnie always had a smile for everyone even during his 138 days in ICU. He was uplifting to us all. Our family get togethers will never be the same but they are having wonderful times in heaven with no pain or illness. Just love and smiles. He had joined our other Angels to watch over us here on earth. Oh Lord how we truly miss them with us but we will be reunited. Til then give Connie and family comfort, hugs and love from you dear Lord and from all of us on earth.

Love you always Ronnie,
You were one of (if not my best) friend growing up and I will never forget you.
I’m a better person for having known you.
The memories of our high school years together along with our other classmates are some of the best memories and times of my life.
I’ll always regret not having spent more time with you… (especially when we met again at your mom’s funeral).
I regret that I never got to meet your wife, children, and grandchildren….(it’s unbelievable that we could lose touch with each other that much).
I wish someone had let me know you were ill….(I’d have been there in a heartbeat).
It’s unbelievable that I’m just now hearing of your struggles and passing….. (I am so sorry brother… I should have been there…. I wish I had been there………another regret I’ll always have).
My only hope is that I become worthy to see you again someday in Heaven.
It’s so great to hear of your strength and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
I love you brother……rest in Peace…..I’ll miss you.
Ronnie was like a brother to me.
If there is anything you need or anything I can do….. please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Please tell Ronnie’s sister, Tracy,….. that I’m so sorry….. and our love to her also.
May the Lord be with you all, and comfort you always,
Chris Freeman says
We had some good times.
Blanchard Lions forever !
