Ronald “Ronnie” L. Wallace, age 57, of Granite City, IL, passed away on Sunday, September 10, 2017 at Gateway Regional Medical Center, Granite City, IL. Ronnie was born on June 14, 1960 in Granite City, IL, a son of Guy Wallace and Laverne (Taylor) Dawson.

Ronnie was very outgoing and he never met a stranger. If you ever needed any kind of help, Ronnie was always ready to lend a hand. He enjoyed playing poker with his friends. His greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially with his grandchildren, whom he adored. Ronnie loved life, he loved to laugh, but most of all he loved his family. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

He was preceded in death by his father, Guy Wallace; stepfather, Richard Dawson; and one sister, Judy Riskovsky.

Ronnie is survived by his dear mother, Laverne Dawson of Granite City, IL; loving daughters, Rebecca Wallace of Eureka, MO and Christina Wallace of Collinsville, IL; dear brothers and sisters-in-law, Michael and Jada Dawson of Collinsville, IL, Darin and Beverly Dawson of Highland, IL and Marty Pulley of OK; step-mom, Vicky Wallace; proud grandfather to Dawson, Christian, Trinity, Anabelle, Alex and Haliana; extended family and many wonderful friends.
