Ronnie moved to Michigan and made Southwest Michigan his home. On July 16, 1987, he married Gloria Ann (Beauregard) Krantz. Ronnie was a loving husband, dedicated father and supportive grandfather. His life was built around his children and grandchildren, and he leaves them with wonderful memories to cherish. Ronnies favorite days were spent at home, family and friends gathered, with the Sunday barbecue going. He loved laughing and reminiscing about old camping trips or hunting excursions. Ronnie was very handy and in the Krantz household was known as “Mr. Fix-it”; there was nothing he wouldn’t try to help with. Above all Ronnie loved his family and he will be missed. He is survived by his loving wife Gloria Krantz; nine children, Tonya Parker, Brandi Parker, Jenny (Chad) Rainey, Lacey (Branden) Phillips, Dustin Krantz, Malichi Krantz, Zylyn Krantz, also Duane Parker Jr. and Ronnie F.
