1980 Ronnie 2021

Ronnie Cleveland Fink, II

April 14, 1980 — October 27, 2021

Ronnie Cleveland Fink, II, 41, of Beckley, left this earthly plane on Wednesday,October 27th, 2021 after a
long, hard-fought battle with multiple illnesses. At approximately 6pm on that evening the Holy Spirit
came into his room and gently escorted Ronnie out of that pain ridden body into the Kingdom of
Heaven.
Ronnie was born in Beckley on April 14th
, 1980 to Karen Lynn Underwood and Ronnie C. Fink, I. He grew
up in Beckley, Crab Orchard, and also spent a great deal of time in Shady Spring. He attended Stanford
and Crab Orchard elementary schools and Independence and Park junior high schools. As a child he
could ride or drive nearly anything with wheels. He loved the outdoors, animals, and music… and those
things never changed. Ronnie was such a good artist! His drawings were seen by many of us, but he also
enjoyed clay sculpting, painting, carving, and just creating beautiful and interesting things. There was no
denying that he was an artist at heart….a talented, eccentric, moon-loving,somewhat misunderstood
artist. In recent years Ron had continued his love of all types of music, movies, YouTube, and animals. He
got the biggest kick out of playing a good prank or telling an unexpected joke.He had an infectious laugh
that will always be in the back of our minds when we hear a corny joke, see someone pretend to fall and
be hurt, or watch a funny YouTube video.
Many people only knew all of these things about him, but some of us were privy to the WHOLE Ronnie.
The Ronnie who was not just dark and hurt and who disguised it as humor, but who recognized that
both good and bad exist in us all. He was kind, forgiving, funny, protective,sweet, strong, stubborn,
sharp, silly, and opinionated. Most of all Ronnie loved us all and only wanted the best for everyone in his
life. He had a huge heart and an unwavering faith and belief in God. He was in pain both physically and
emotionally throughout his life, but he believed in the goodness and mercy of God. He had spoken of
this recently and said that he had asked God to make him a Fisher of men. He was. He could give advice,
guidance, and perspective that would sometimes leave you speechless. For all of these things and so
many,many more, he will be remembered and cherished until we meet him again, as he would
say….Later♡
