Ronald Lee “Ronnie” Ware, 65, of Thomas, formerly of Anmoore and Mingo, passed away on Sunday, January 3, 2021 at the Garrett Regional Medical Center in Oakland, MD.

Ronnie was born in Elkins on September 9, 1955, a son of the late Carl Ramon Ware, and Ruby Grace (Pritt) Ware, who survives in Anmoore.

In addition to his father, Ronnie was preceded in death by his grandparents, Burley and Mary Pritt, and Charles and Biddie Ware; two brothers, Rodney Ware and Randall Ware; one sister-in-law, Allene Ware; one son-in-law, Richard Suntken; and several extended family members to include aunts, uncles and cousins.

Surviving to cherish Ronnie’s memory are his mother, Ruby Grace (Pritt) Ware; two brothers, Roger Ware and his companion Robin Goff and Rex (Brenda) Ware; three sisters, Rachel (Keith) Ware, Regina Ware and Rhoda (Darrick) Leeson; one sister-in-law, Sheila Ware; one daughter, Debra (Ricky) Harbert; two granddaughters, Briana Suntken and companion Juwan Jones-Wright and Zoey Harbert; one grandson, Nathan Harbert; one great granddaughter, Ezlyn Jones-Wright; several nephews, nieces, great nephew and nieces, as well as extended family and friends.

Ronnie was raised in Anmoore, was the oldest of his siblings and graduated from Bridgeport High School in 1973. In his early adult life, Ronnie drove truck for Hinkle Brothers and was a very active member of the Anmoore Volunteer Fire Department. He was a Lieutenant when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and forced to stop service.

To say Ronnie loved the outdoors would be an understatement. Hunting was his passion. He looked forward to hunting in Randolph County every year. In 2003, Ronnie moved to Mingo in Randolph County. He made Mingo his home until two years ago when he moved to Cortland Acres in Thomas.

A very special Thank you to the excellent staff at Cortland Acres for being so great to Ronnie for the last two years. Like so many others, Ronnie became a victim of this Global Pandemic. He passed away at Garrett Regional Medical Center in the ICU due to the effects CoVid had on his body. A special thank you to the staff and doctors who cared for Ronnie in his final days.

At the request of the family, there will be no service at this time. A memorial service will be held at the Floral Hills Memorial Gardens Chapel when it is once again safe to gather. Ronnie will already be there, as he will be laid to rest in the Mausoleum at the Chapel.
