Obituary for Ronald Ray Bagby

On April 21, as a beautiful Easter Sunday came to a close, Ronald Ray Bagby, beloved husband and father of two, peacefully entered the kingdom of Heaven. He had just turned 78. He was known as Ronald to his dad, and Ron to the rest of the world, but the ones who loved and knew him best called him Ronnie.
Ronnie was born on April 9, 1941 to John and Leu Ella (Lula) Bagby in Slaton, Texas. He attended Texas Tech University and worked in the railroad industry for 40 years. On August 18, 1962, Ronnie married the love of his life, Nita Sue Ward of Slaton, Texas. They raised two children, daughter Stacie Dawn, and son John Craig.
Ronnie had a passion for the outdoors. As well as being a ranch hand at the C Bar ranch in Slaton, Ronnie loved hunting, fishing and saddle bronc riding in rodeos. Ronnie served as both a deacon and an elder in his church. Always known for his quick wit, Ronnie usually got a smile and a laugh or two from anyone he spoke to, whether they were old friends or complete strangers. But his favorite thing was dancing to “Waltz Across Texas” with his beautiful bride of 56 years, Nita.
Ronnie leaves behind a legacy which includes sister Jan Sorrels; his two children; five grandchildren-Kylee Rae Olberding (Jake), Samantha Dawn Gregory, Colton McLain Trowbridge, Carson Paige Trowbridge, and Ella Sophia Bagby; 3 great grandchildren-Landon Gray, Paisley Grace, and Harlan Jacob; and 9 nieces and nephews.
A celebration of his life will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, June 8 at Wimberley Presbyterian Church, 956 FM 2325, Wimberley, TX 78676. Donations may also be made to the church in his honor.
