Ronald ''Ronnie'' Ernest Mercier Jr., 48, after a lengthy struggle with illness, passed away on Friday, September 8th, 2017.
Ronnie loved his family, especially his devoted wife of 23 years, Christine and their daughters, Emma, and Nicole. Nothing brought him more joy than being with his family, especially his daughters and grandchildren. He loved the outdoors, sports, hunting and most of all fishing. Ronnie was larger than life, and lit up every room he entered. He loved to share stories about the things he’d experienced, and his infectious sense of humor never failed despite his declining health. In addition to his family, Ronnie had a wide circle of friends, and tried to keep up with as many as he could through Facebook. Ron is survived by his wife, Christine Wade Mercier, his daughter Emma Joan Pace, daughter Nicole and her husband Bobby Prebelski, and their two children Aurora Marie and Jackson Ronald Rowan, his mother Roberta “Honey” Mercier and his 3 sisters and their families: Cheree and Daniel Allee and their two children Alexandria and Daniel Jr., Jeannine and Oliver Guerra and their four children Oliver, Joseph, Catherine, and Gabriella, and Nicole and Nathan Campbell and their two children Mercier and Violet. He is preceded in death by his father, Ronald Ernest Mercier Sr. A memorial service to celebrate Ron’s life will be held on Saturday, September 16th at 2:00 pm at The Church of Reconciliation, 8900 Starcrest, San Antonio, Texas 78217. This world never seemed large enough to contain Ronnie’s love for his family and friends. It will never be the same with his loss. We will love you forever and always Ron. May you rest in peace with our heavenly father.
