Ernest (Ronnie) Weeks Obituary

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.       2 Timothy 4:7


Ernest “Ronnie” Weeks was born October 16, 1956, to the late Willie Joe Williams and the late Ophelia Legette. Ernest was raised and cared for by the late Joseph Weeks and the late Nettie Pugh Weeks in Mullins, South Carolina.


Ernest, affectionately known as “Ronnie,” received his formal education from Mullins High School and was a member of the class of 1977.   While in good health, Ronnie was employed with AVM Industries in Mullins, SC, and Walmart in Conway, SC.


Ronnie had such a welcoming and warm smile that would make any stranger feel comfortable in his presence. Once he met you, you became his friend. When you went to visit him in the hospital and nursing home, that big smile would appear along with the glow that he had when family and friends would walk into his room.


Ronnie liked his sweets, snacks, and black coffee. But most of all, Ronnie loved his WESTERN COWBOY HAT.   He was a gentle giant.  Ronnie’s obituary may not be as long as others, but if you knew Ronnie, you would know that the dash between 1956 (-) 2023 holds a lot of special memories for many people, especially his family.  


He was preceded in death by his biological parents and adoptive parents, his siblings: Rev. Irvin Wilson, Bessie Weeks Orgain, Alice Weeks Genwright, Deloris Ripley, Shirley Williams, and Betty Jo Williams.


Those left to cherish Ronnie’s memories include his sisters, Nancy Hamilton, Gladys Reaves, Mary Ann Curry, and Elizabeth Campbell; his brothers, Jimmy Williams, Derrick Weeks, and Daniel Weeks; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
