Ronald Francis Galloway was born on March 10, 1954, in Shreveport, Louisiana. Surrounded by his loving family, he transitioned on February 23, 2022, in Garland, Texas.
In 1973, Ronald graduated from Byrd High School in Shreveport. He went on to enjoy working in a number of industries - glass, automotive, and food processing. He most enjoyed working as an autobody paint technician. After many years of service, he retired in 2016.
Ronald gave his life to Christ and loved God with all his heart, soul, strength, and mind. Selfless at heart, he ministered to people, even those living on the streets, about salvation through Jesus. Every day, he manifested one of the great commandments, "Love your neighbor as yourself". Ronald, indeed, tried to love his neighbors as himself on a daily basis.
Affectionately regarded as "Billy Shy" and "Ronnie", Ronald loved his children. His greatest achievement was to love and be loved by his family and friends. He had the unique ability to find beauty and value in discarded things. Among many hobbies and interests, he loved working with his hands, working on cars, and collecting antiques. He also delighted in music, horses, model cars, dominos, and golf.
A Stoner Hill legend (Shreveport), Ronald was a great brother and protector. He was a man of wisdom and a loving father, brother, and friend. He will be fondly remembered for his humorous, optimistic, and outgoing nature. He was "cool as a fan", and his loving spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Ronald was preceded in death by his father, Francis R. Galloway; mother, Jeanie Mae Bass Mitchell; and son, Santana Clark. Those left to cherish precious memories and carry on his legacy of love include his children - Carlous Galloway, Sr., Roderick Hill, Rev. Ramon F. Smith, Sr. (Gabrielle), Jasmine Galloway, and Janessa Galloway; 21 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; siblings - Annie Lois Dickson (Frank), Janice Dickens Griffin, Terrie Galloway Horton, Joan Goodwin, Marian Balthazar, Kysheya Galloway, and Nickey Huntly; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
