On Tuesday, November 17, 2020, God called our beloved Ronald Leroy Lassiter, Sr., to everlasting rest. Ronnie's earthly journey began on December 31, 1948, the third child born to the late Carl and Mary Lassiter of Williamsburg, Virginia.
Ronnie attended the Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools, graduating with the class of 1967 from Berkeley High School.
Ronnie had a personality that couldn't be beat. He always had a jovial way that would make grown folks laugh out loud and children giggle. He was a member of the Buffalo Boyz Motorcycle Club and enjoyed group riding, working, and participating in their activities and events. Joy for everyone was to see Ronnie singing with the Buffalo Boyz when they sang at many programs throughout the years. He always enjoyed having his friends and family visit him at the 'garage', a gathering of the minds as he called it.
He was preceded in death by a daughter, Rhonda Lassiter; son, Carlos Lassiter; granddaughter, Jessica Smith; brother, William 'Billy' Lassiter; and nephew, Carl L. Lassiter, III.
Ronnie is survived by his wife of 35 years, Francine Scott Lassiter; children, Ronald Lassiter, Jr. (Teresa Pearce), Seneca Lassiter (Esperanza), Rondell Lassiter, Troy Scott, Sherita Hamilton Lassiter (Renee), and Missy Hill (Wayne); cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren; godson, Kevin Jones; siblings, Carl Lassiter, Jr. (Coleen), Curtis Lassiter, Sr. (Cynthia), Mary Lassiter, and Sandra Clyburn; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A Homegoing Service is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Saturday, November 21, 2020, at St. John Baptist Church. Due to the current health pandemic, all attendees must remain in their vehicles.
