Ronald Henry Arceneaux Sr., 73, a lifelong native of Morgan City, passed away at his residence on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013.

Arceneaux Jr. of Bayou L’Ourse; five grandchildren, Samantha Fromenthal, Brandy Swim, Robin Ann Brown, Katie Breaux and Alex Theriot; seven great-grandchildren with expectation of an eighth soon; two brothers, Irie Wlliamson of Texas and Anthony Arceneaux of Oklahoma; and one sister, Ursula Worsham of Texas; along with a host of nieces and nephews.

Ronald was preceded in death by his parents, Richard Arceneaux and Annette Giroir Crouch; and one brother.

Visitation will take place today, Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, beginning at 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. at Twin City Funeral Home and will resume on Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, starting at 8 a.m. until the time of service at 1 p.m. He will be laid to rest in the Morgan City Cemetery.

Ronald began his life July 18, 1940, and along the way met Yvonne and made her his wife on Aug. 15, 1959. They began their family of two children, Pamela and Ronald Jr. Along the way Ronald had several occupations in which he was always proud to say he worked doing. He worked as a dairy manager, boat hand, milk man, bread man and a floor mechanic (carpet man). But his most long-sought job profession was for him to become a commercial fisherman. He loved the water crawfishing, crabbing, and shrimping. Along with him would be his wife Yvonne.

He had many friends and family, and if you knew Ronald you knew he was somewhat of a jokester. And on Aug. 17, 2013, Ronald passed from this world as we know it and crossed over into his new life after a battle of lengthy illness.
