ron jacquez rsRonnie (Ron) Jacquez, 56, of Silver City was called home on December 4, 2017.

Ronnie was born on April 21, 1961 to Tony and Barbara Jacquez in Silver City New Mexico.

Ronnie was a very well-liked man who became friends with everyone he met.

He would never forget a name but was always quick to give them a unique nickname. Everyone knew him by his infectious laugh that always filled the room with energy and happiness. Ronnie was always quick to offer a helping hand to those in need.

He lived with his Mother who he referred to as "His Pretty Lady" until his passing as her caregiver. Ronnie was known in the county for many years as a car salesman. He took a lot of pride in his work and helped out many families in the community. Ronnie always welcomed his family and friends to his home and entertained them with food and drinks, and some darn good times. He was always proud of the family and their accomplishments no matter how small or big the achievement was whether it be the honor roll, sports, promotions in their jobs, or anything that was good for the family. He would say that they were making the Jacquez Family name stronger!

He is survived by his daughter Dinalle Jacquez and companion Louie Cota and his grandchildren Lexi and Gregory Jacquez; his son Roland Jacquez and fiancée Avery McBride and granddaughter Amethyst; and his son Armando Lucero; his mother Barbara Jacquez; his companion Priscilla Garcia; two brothers Tony Jacquez and Ralph Jacquez; two sisters Norma Jean Hernandez and Gavino and MaryEllen Lopez and husband Louie. God children Christina Delgado and Xavier Roman Gomez; also many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces and Nephews.

Ronnie was welcomed to his eternal home by his father, Tony O. Jacquez and his son, Naldo Jacquez.
