  1. One of the finest men I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Prayers for his family and friends.

  2. Not only was a long life friend, but he was an outstanding employee for TVA and worked hard to serve the people of the valley for many years. He was model employee of mine who represented the Teamster union with great pride . Not only will I truly miss Ronnie as a great friend, but our Transmission Lines family has lost a special, hard-working employee.

    Rest in peace Ronnie Ezell 🙏

  3. So sorry for the Ezell family. We will hold you in our prayers as we await riding with Ronnie again.

  4. Ronnie was as great a man as I’ve ever met. I never saw him that we didn’t smile and have a great laugh. So glad I got to hug your neck last time we spoke. God bless your family.

  5. He was such an amazing friend to me and my dad Jim Tirey. We cherished his friendship, his smile and wonderful outlook everything. We will miss and love him forever more.
    Sorry dad can not attend but he has recently become bed bound. Our thoyghts and prayers are with you.

  6. I am so glad we had just had a couple of conversations on Facebook after not seeing you in 25 years. I believe now it was meant to be. We had fun in your old jeep when you worked at Fredricksons Appliances. We sat around the pool at Heathrow several nights just talking and enjoying life. R.I.P. my dear friend. See you on the other side. Love Always.

  7. Ronnie was just an all around great guy, always had a smile on his face every time you saw him. Just a pleasant person to be around.
    Always remember the good times to get you through the hard times.

  8. What do you say about a man who was a good and trusted friend over the many years of our acquaintance? Well, we navigated through high school together, played in the craziest band ever, and continued to stay in touch over the years…

    What I would say is that this was a man who lived life well and it was my pleasure to have shared so many memories with him.

    I talked with him last Monday, January 27 as he talked about his illness – hopeful and confident of his recovery. We shared some of those memories one more time – I will miss him more than I could have ever imagined.

    Rest in Peace Ezell…

  9. Brother, I’m going to miss you so much. Dinners with our group,… the river,… If everyone in this old world were like you, it would be a far better place. Save me a seat up there,…

  10. Ronnie was such a special person. I never saw him without a smile on his face. TVA has lost a good one. You will always be remembered by the TVA family. It was a blessing to have known you and to have worked with you. Until we meet again my friend.

  11. Condolences on the passing of Ronnie . It was a shock to all of us who knew him . Ronnie was one of the most caring and good natured people I have ever known . Continued prayers for the family . Rest In Peace my friend , until we meet again .

  12. I remember Ronnie from Coffee and auto mechanics class at Burrel Slater. He was always friendly and smiling. I haven’t seen him much since those days but I’ve never forgotten him. Looking at the obituaries today seeing his passing, this breaks my heart. You know he was a great guy when me, a former classmate of our school days who hasn’t seen him in over 30 years feels such a loss. Rest in peace brother. You just changed your address . Eternal life in Heaven.


  14. Ronnie, who would have thought when some of us Ezell cousins met on the river last year, and for me the first time we met, that this happened. Ronnie, may you fly with the angels and walk the streets of gold. One day cousin we will meet again. Until then God bless you and may God watch over your loved ones during this difficult time. Thoughts and prayers.

  15. Sandy & Janis, we are so sorry to learn of the passing of Ronnie. A great man with a great heart. You all are in thoughts and our prayers. God bless, David, Lori, Andrew, Justin Stutts.
