Ronald Lynn Ferguson

Funeral services for Mr. Ronald “Ronny” Lynn Ferguson, 74, of Watauga, TX, is scheduled for 3:00 PM Friday, April 19, 2019 at First Assembly of God with Brother Ken Otwell officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to service.

Ronald Lynn Ferguson was born January 18, 1945 in Dallas to Linton Doty and Margaret Jean (Hastings) Ferguson. After graduating high school, he worked at his parent’s service station. He later served his country proudly in the United States Navy on the USS Enterprise. In 1968 he married Ruth Ann (Warner) Ferguson. The two were married 32 years at the time of her passing in 2000. On December 15, 2000, he married Sharon Ferguson. In 2003, he retired from American Airlines. He worked for 32 years as a crew chief.

Ronny was a Quitman and Yantis resident for 20 years before moving to Watauga in 2017. He was a member of First Assembly of God. He was also a proud member of the NRA and a former Bass Masters member. He was a very accomplished fisherman, and in his mind, he was THE Bass Master. Ronny loved fossils and had a huge crystal and rock collection. The first thing he picked up when he learned to walk was a rock. He loved fossil hunting and studying archaeology. He was a man of many hobbies, enjoying hunting and fishing, metal detecting and excavating antique bottles, trapping furs, chess, and was always ready for a good arm wrestling challenge.

Ronny was a good man and a great father, husband, grandfather, and great grandfather. He loved his family dearly and will be missed by his family and many friends.

Ronny passed away Saturday morning, April 13, 2019.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Linton Doty Ferguson and Margaret Jean (Hastings) Ferguson; his first wife of 32 years, Ruth Ann (Warner) Ferguson; sister, Linda Williston; and brother, Donny Ferguson.

Dad I miss you more every day. I am glad your not in pain anymore. but I do miss talking with you about hunting and fishing. You taught me so much and you groomed me into the man I am today. You taught me to love God and work hard and so many other thing. You were a great father and I will always love you. I hope the fish are biting up there in heaven. Until we see each other again in heaven I love you Dad.

To the Ferguson Family...I don't know many of you, but work with Brian. Many of us at the jail prayed for Ronald, as Brian kept us up with how he was doing. I'm sorry I can not make the service today, but wanted you to know that our continued prayers will be with your entire family. Conrad (Mr. D)

My condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Ferguson. May you find yourselves surrounded by true friends in this time of your loss. Prov.17:17"A true friend shows love at all times And is a brother who is born for times of distress." I personally find the words in Revelation very comforting. Rev. 21:3,4"..And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." The following free article is very comforting, may it be of help, during this time of grief. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/awake-no3-2018-nov-dec/
