Ronald M. Schwabe (1965-2017), 51 years of age, left this life February 27, 2017 surrounded by his family and closest friends.  He was a person who always lived life to its fullest, but the last few years were fraught with constant, intense, chronic pain resulting from failed medical procedures and the inability to alleviate what had been created.

Ronnie spent his career in the construction field, often self employed, as well as working for others.  He was very skilled and able to do many things.  His computer expertise was exceptional, all self taught, and he was a guru who provided help and assistance to many.

He loved the outdoors and followed some of the best coon hounds to ever take a breath over the years, he was a top handler and dog man.  Also, a great fisherman who loved being on the water who put many giant catfish in the boat, almost all were returned to swim again and allow others the joy of the same experience.

Ronnis was a good man who had many friends all over the world.  He is survived by his parents, Ron and Marilyn Schwabe of Athens, IL, his daughter, Star and grandson Archer of Jefferson City, MO, aunts and uncles; BJ Jarrett, John Jarrett, Bob Jarrett, William Jarrett, Harold Bowman, Bill and Vicky Jarrett, Jake and Kathy Jarrett, Don and Diane Jarrett, and many cousins and a great number of friends.

There will be a Memorial Celebration of Life event at the Athens Community Center, March 11, 2017 from 1-4pm, all are invited to share thoughts and memories.

Ronnie may have left us, but his memory will be forever in the hearts and minds of all fortunate enough to have known him…
