On January 8, 2023, Ronnie Morgan Stephens, 79, was called home to be with the Lord. He was the first of four children born to Vernola (Stephens) Stewart. Preceding him in death was his wife of 44 years, Cynthia (Weaver) Stephens, and his mother, Vernola (Stephens) Stewart.

Ronnie was born June 3, 1943, in Chillicothe, MO to Vernola Stephens. He was raised by his grandparents, William Olie and Mary Stephens, until their passing. Ronnie received his G.E.D. and enlisted in the US Army in 1961. He proudly served the United States in Vietnam.

Ronnie married Cynthia Weaver in 1976. He held various positions with different companies throughout his life, with his last position being an Environmental Construction Worker. He was known for his generosity, wittiness, and broad knowledge about all subjects.
