Ronald Jr., affectionately known by family and friends as “Lil Ron” accepted Jesus Christ as his savior at a very young age. He was baptized at Morning Star Baptist Church in Fairmont under the pastorate of Rev. Wesley Q. Dobbs. As an active church member, Lil Ron sang with the children’s choir, God’s Angels. He attended Sunday school regularly and performed in plays; and, he grew in the fear and admonition of the Lord. During his elementary and Middle school years, he attended St. Peter St. Paul Catholic School in Monongah, Dunbar and Miller Schools; and, in high school, he attended Fairmont High, where he played football. He loved sports and also played with the Barrackville Bisons. Ron passionately loved reading and was an excellent public speaker. He loved his family as much as he loved the Lord. Everyone loved him because he always had a smile and had a great sense of humor. Children especially loved him as much as he loved them. Lil Ron suddenly departed this earthly home and moved on to his eternal home on April 30, 2019. Left to mourn his passing and cherish his memory are his mother, Deaconess Lynn Renee Chaney; his sisters: Ashley Chaney (fiancé, Walter Colley Jr.); and Elicia Chaney Andrews (Craig) of Charlotte, NC.
