Cochran Funeral Home of Hiawassee announces funeral services for Mr. Ronnie London, age 65, of Dacula, Georgia, who passed away on Saturday, September 14th, 2019.
Born to Harold and Betty London on August 29, 1954 in Atlanta Georgia, Ronnie saw the world through different eyes. He saw people through different eyes. He was more than just kind and generous. He truly believed that there was good buried deep in the heart of us all. But sometimes it took time to get that good dug out of people’s lives. In that, he loved like Christ loves. Truly believing that people were deserving of another chance. And then another. And then another. Without end. What a simple thought. What a simple thing. But the truly deep things are always hiding in plain sight within the simple acts of love we so easily pass over. Ronnie had that part figured out. So we will miss him for this and for his quick wit, his easy nature, his contagious laugh and his good, good heart. Heaven’s gate swings wide for a man like Ronnie.
He will be warmly remembered by all who knew him, but especially missed by his family: Mother, Betty London; Sister’s, Charlene L. Davis and Darlene London Merritt; Nephew, Jamey Merritt; Niece, Stephanie White; Great Niece, Samantha McPherson; Great Nephew, Daniel White; Great- Great Niece, Lyric McPherson; and Five Cats: Woody, Chester, Nova, Chevy, and Harley. Special mention of Tony Vaughn & Darrell Dillon. Thank you for being there for Ronnie all these years. Ronnie was preceded by the love of his life and wife of 37 years, Laverna A. London; his father, Harold London; and brother, Dennis London.
Funeral services are scheduled for Wednesday, September 18th, at 3:00 p.m., to be held in the Chapel of Cochran Funeral Home in Hiawassee.
