It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mr. Ronald Lee Obier, age 61, of Waco, TX.

Ronnie was born on June 20, 1956 in Waco to Dorothy Jean Obier and the late Roy Alfred Obier. He was a devoted husband and an amazing Dad and PePaw. He enjoyed spending his free time fishing with his twink and making his wife happy. He truly adored his wife more than anything on this Earth. Ronnie was Santa at the mall for several years and loved seeing the children's faces light up with excitement by sharing their Christmas wishes with him. He loved his grandchildren and attended every sporting event he could. Even once he couldn't attend the games, he always made sure to keep up with the app on his phone. It brought such joy to him. He loved his Dallas Cowboys and Baylor Bears and always made sure to catch the games with the family. He enjoyed spending time with all of his children and cherished every moment he had. Ronnie always knew how to make you feel so loved. He truly was a special man. There will never be another one like him that's for sure. He was a valued employee at Airgas Southwest for 17 years and worked for the City of Waco for 20 years prior to that.
He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Lisa Suzanne Obier, his mother Dorothy Jean Obier, his children, Cody Braxton Coe, Nikki Cheyenne Coe, Crystal Dawn Obier and Cody Allen Obier. He also leaves behind 4 grandchildren, Katie McKenzie Sadler, Caden Blaine Coe, Cannon William Coe and Dasia Rose Ruiz. Ronnie also leaves behind a brother, David Obier and sister-in-law (twink), Robin Stine, as well as a niece, Tanci Hommel and a nephew, Jeff Obier. We'd also like to give a special thanks to all the staff at Scott & White for being so comforting during this hard time.
