Ronnie, also known as “Lebiss”, was a friendly happy-go-lucky man. He was outgoing and fun loving from early childhood.

Ronnie worked for 30+ years at Chrysler Corporation in Newark. He was an assembler and later advanced to repairman. He later worked 7+ years at Winner Ford and was working at Piazza Porsche until he became ill.

Ronnie had a flair for being well dressed. He will be remembered for his many suits, neckties, hats and casual wear. Ronnie also liked to ride in style. He would get a new vehicle every 2 or 3 years.

He loved to travel around the local Delaware area. You could find him at Wawa, the New Castle Farmer’s Market, Nicky’s Paper Store and Cowtown in New Jersey.

  2. Heartfelt Condolance to all the family of my very good friend of over 50 yrs. My heart is so broken n sad. When we moved to Kennett, this was one of the names that was of high reputation. I loved being around my smooth n good natured dude. We had so much fun when we worked at the plant. Everybody just loved this brother! He will always be remembered in my heart with his bigger than life personality n him being a true friend to all. I know that he knew the Lord n that my many n often conversations about Christ where sincere. Ronnie, see you at the barber shop in Heaven. Your bro. n friend. Dec. LM Dutton
