Ronny was preceded in death by his brother, LaCarda Barnes; his sister, Lisa Lee and his grandparents along with several uncles and cousins.

Ronny was survived by his parents, Willie and Marilyn Reid of Pikeville; his wife, Norma Barnes; son, Jalen Isaiah Barnes of Goldsboro; daughter, Jaslynn Kellee Rogers of Kinston; grandson, Brandon Paul Thomas, Jr., of Kinston; his sisters, Renee Reid and Robin Reid and countless other family and friends.

Ronny was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 6, 1986. He worked for Camelot Music Store for 22 years and Wayne County Public Schools for 15 years until May of 2020. Ronny enjoyed playing electric football as a pastime with his cousins, James Artis, Dalvin Reid, and his best friend, Rhone McManus.  Ronny married his wife, Norma Barnes on July 20, 2014. They both loved to tell all who would listen about their love story, always saying that Jehovah had brought them together just at the right time. They both enjoyed talking about their strong faith and the promise of the day when he would have perfect health. Even though we have for the moment been separated from our dear beloved Ronny, it will only be for a little while. For in just a little while we will be reunited with Ronny in that Grand Paradise that he so much hoped for.
