Ronald loved his family and dedicated his life to taking care of the people he loved the most, his family and friends. Although Ronald never married, he had many friends and was loved by many and will be missed but not forgotten.
He is preceded in death by his parents Charlie and Evelyn Landers, brother Terry Landers and nephew Ricky Landers. He is survived by his brothers Charles (Katrina) Landers, Donald Landers and niece Charley Jo Landers and numerous cousins.
Ronald was a natural servient leader by allowing people to develop their skills and placed others above himself. He was a kind and gentle person who believed in people, helping them to achieve their goals, always a watchful eye out for what might be coming around the bend. He had a natural easy-going nature with a sense of humor that made many difficult situations better with a smile and a kind gesture of support by maybe a hand on your shoulder to reassure you that things will get better and he’s there to help. Ronald dedicated his life to his family and truly believed that helping others throughout his entire life was the best achievement one could contribute to the world. Despite all of the many challenges that he faced on a day-to-day basis, being that he was legally blind, was diabetic and on dialysis three times a week, he never gave up always moving forward smiling and laughing and occasionally a prank or two if he could get away with it, he had a sense of humor and enjoyed laughing and being with others. He like to have fun.
