Born on July 17th, 1953, in Marshalltown at the St. Thomas Hospital, he was the eldest child born to David and Doris (Schaper) Terrell. He received his education in the Pleasant Hill School in Marshalltown.
Ronnie was a faithful member of St. Paul Lutheran and the Special Olympics. Music was in his heart and he loved to sing for church or the State Center Specialty Care. He had quite a collection of hats family and friends brought back from travels. Summers going to the Iowa State Fair and eating tenderloin, making sure everything was neat and tidy, sitting on the swing or rocking chair and ice cream and cold Mt. Dew were always highlights of his day.
He will be greatly missed by his mom, Doris Terrell, his sister Linda (Tom) Henline of Norwalk, brother Ricky Terrell of State Center and brother Randy (Kris) Terrell of State Center, three nephews- David Henline, Ethan (Nicole) Terrell and Jason (Jordan) Terrell as well as three great-nieces/nephews on the way.
In death, he rejoined his father, David who passed in 1975, and his grandparents.
