William Ronnie “RD” Dawson, of Pine Bluff, met Jesus on May 23, 2021 at his home with his brother by his side. Ronnie was born in Newport, Arkansas on July 25, 1954.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Lenora and William “Bill” Dawson; and his youngest sister, Lavonda Gail Dawson.
Survivors include one daughter, Jennifer Williams (David); five grandchildren, Devin Ewing, Rebecca Ewing, Kalin Turner (Roger), Dylan Williams, and Timothy Ewing, all of Colorado; one brother, James “Jim” Dawson of Pine Bluff; two sisters, Patricia “Pat” Harvey (George) of Hot Springs and Kathy Frazier (Delbert) of Vilonia; three nieces, Cristel Ross, Nancy Schnaufer and Stacy Baker; two nephews, Michael Frazier and Jeffery Frazier; seven great nephews; five great nieces; and two great-great nephews. One of his great nieces, Addison Frazier, was also his very special friend. She first met Ronnie when she was three and a half years old and immediately had such a love for him and he for her. She would tell her parents that he was her “friend”. His face would light up whenever her name was mentioned. It was a God given pure love. One of his last requests was to see Addison, who is now six years old, one more time and he got to do that ten days before meeting Jesus. Ronnie is also survived by a host of other family, friends, brothers and sisters.
Ronnie had a variety of occupations during his life including Raywick Mfg., Ben Pearson, and International Paper. He was also the owner of RD’s Bike Shop off of Old Warren Road in Pine Bluff. An avid Harley enthusiast, Ronnie founded Arkansas Abate District 20 in 2001 and served as the first president.
Memorial service will be 2:00 PM Saturday, May 29, 2021 in the chapel of Ralph Robinson and Son with Rev. Pat Hart officiating.
