Reaves, Ronnie 1cc

Ronnie A. Reaves, 67, Bolivar, went to be with the Lord on the morning of Oct. 30, 2016, after a long battle with the big bad C. He was born July 29, 1949, in Warsaw, the son of Leo and Ila (Kirby) Reaves.

Ronnie proudly served our country multiple tours in the Vietnam War. He was a firm believer in our Savior Jesus Christ. Ronnie was known for his talkative nature and his caring heart. He was a kind man that would give you his time and would always help someone in need. He was a man who truly had something for everyone.

He loved to acquire anything unique. He loved to barter even more. Ronnie had an impressive undying love for his family and friends. He left a mark on everyone he met and he will truly be missed by all.
