Ronald Dewayne "Ronnie" Calkins was born June 17, 1949 at Amarillo, TX to George Ezra and Mary Ann (Weller) Calkins and departed this life in Lawton, OK on May 27, 2019 at the age of 69 years, 11 months and 10 days.

Ronnie grew up at Groom, TX. He worked for the City of Amarillo for a time before moving to Lubbock where he was employed as a manager for 7-Eleven. He met Jackie Lynn Collier who also worked as a manager for 7-Eleven and they married on July 2, 1990 at Clovis, NM. They came to Walters, OK in 1992, owning and operating Circle S and Simple Simons Pizza, and also did catering and ran several concessions stands for sporting events. Because of a fire they changed locations and concentrated on Simple Simons and catering. He eventually hired on to haul trailers, hot-shoting horse trailers across the US. He later had a transport business helping patients get to their doctor appointments, therapy and other medical treatments.

He was a member of Bible Baptist Church in Walters. Ronnie enjoyed doing yardwork, spending time with grandkids, giving people a hard time, playing cards and other games with the family and cooking out.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother, Johnny Calkins.
