MEFFORD, Ronald (Ronnie) L., age 63, of Fairborn, passed away July 11, 2014, with his family by his side. He was born April 28, 1951 in Dayton, OH, son of the late Jesse L. Mefford and Joan F. Davis. In addition to his parents, Ronnie was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Francis Larkin and a very special uncle, Thomas Davis. He is survived by his wife, Cheryl (Ramey); brothers Richard Mefford of Enon and Michael Mefford of Fairborn; children Kelly (Tom) Mader of Fairborn, Lora Mefford of Fairborn, Scott (Shi) Mefford of Springfield and Heather (Danny) Bell of West Carrollton (children with his first wife, Brenda Henderson); Regina Doyle of Celina and Jesi and Jane Mefford of Fairborn (children from his current marriage); 13 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews that were very special to him. He is also survived by an aunt, Mary Mefford of Florida and many cousins and friends. Many will remember Ronnie for his love of music and the endless hours spent playing "name that tune"; all will remember him for his sense of humor, which could be ornery at times. He had a contagious smile, a kind heart and a love for life and Honey Brown. Although we will continue on with our lives, his passing has left a huge hole that can never be filled. A celebration of life will be held at the TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME, 3970 Dayton – Xenia Road, Beavercreek, OH on Friday, July 25. Family will receive friends from 11 a.m. - noon; services from noon - 1:00 p.m.; with burial at the Fairfield Cemetery in Fairborn, OH immediately following. After the services, the family will be holding a memorial picnic at George Rogers Clark Park's Silver Heels shelter in Springfield from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m., where friends and family can spend the afternoon sharing in Ronnie's love of fishing and the outdoors.
