Ronnie Joseph Sr. Obituary

Ronnie Ray Joseph SR. passed away peacefully on February 09, 2023.

Born in Houston, Texas to Debra Denise Joseph and Dempsey Lee Jones. Ronnie grew up in Houston for most of his life. He attended Klein Forest High School as well as Willow Ridge High School. He loved music, trucking, family and most of all his children. Ronnie enjoyed getting together with family and being over the road providing for them. His family was his absolute priority.

Ronnie leaves behind 10 beautiful children, 6 boys and 4 girls. (Demarcus 23, Ronnie JR 13, Ronnisha 11, Akeelah 10, Jayden 9, Nevaeh 8, Adrian 7, Aaron 7, Kaiden 6, and Robert 2). He also leaves behind his beautiful wife and 5 bonus children.  He will be missed dearly.

He also leaves behind 3 siblings. Tangela Ann Joseph, Dempsey Lee Jones JR and Ayla Chasanique Jones who will miss their older brother dearly. He also leaves behind his two aunts from his mother side and three from his father’s side who didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. Ronnie had a big family who loved him and supported him with his dreams. Sadly, the dreams were cut short, but they did in fact come true.

Ronnie Joseph Sr. was the prime example of never giving up on your dreams. He knew exactly what he wanted to become. From watching his father drive trucks to waking up early in the morning to practice in the mirror. Ronnie would place his headphones over his ears, jamming to Sade or Toni Braxton, go into the bathroom, stand in front of the mirror and drive himself a big red for hours. (Literally for hours, if you know then you know) Ronnie made sure to surround himself with friends and people that pursued the same interest in truck driving that he did. He studied daily, watched multiple trucking documentaries and even went on the road with his best friend because he knew exactly what he wanted to be. So, we know that his message to his loved ones and children most importantly is to never give up on your dreams, no matter the obstacles or time. Do what you love and never look back. The words from Ronnie himself “Keep your eyes straight ahead and keep on trucking.”
