Ronnie E. Love Jr. (RJ), 42, of Terre Haute, IN, passed away Wednesday, November 10, 2021 in Noblesville, Indiana after a courageous battle with cancer.

Ronnie was born in Terre Haute on October 24, 1979, to Ronnie Edgar Love Sr. and Teresa LeAnn (Nading) Kelley.

“My father was someone that was loved by all and will not easily be forgotten.”

Ronnie attended Terre Haute North Vigo High School. He was always the life of the party and loved to make people laugh. His boys meant more to him than anything else in the world, as this was something he often mentioned. He also loved sports, especially football, and his favorite team was the Dallas Cowboys. He was passionate about being a loving father, going fishing with his boys, the outdoors, playing darts, and he loved collecting shoes and sports jerseys. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, and his love of God was known by his children.

“Everything I do in my life I do to make my mom and dad proud. I want to carry on in my dad’s footsteps and make sure that his last name lives on forever.” – Gavin Love, Camron Love

In honor of Ronnie’s wishes, cremation was chosen, and a memorial/celebration of life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Ronnie can be made to Riley Children’s Hospital, as this was something he was passionate about.
