Ronald (Ronnie) Lewis Summers, 73, Clementsville, KY (1946-2020)
Ronald "Ronnie" Lewis Summers passed away Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at his home in Clementsville, Kentucky. He was 73 years old.
Funeral services will be held on Friday, April 3, 2020 at Auberry - Gupton & Chandler Funeral Home in Campbellsville, Kentucky with Father George Otuma officiating. Burial will follow at St. Bernard Catholic Church in Clementsville.
Under direction of the Office of Governor Andy Beshear and the Kentucky Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors, in effort to combat the spread of COVID-19 all funeral services will be performed privately. Online condolences at auberryguptonfh.com.
Ronnie was born May 1, 1946 to Gene and Evelyn (Murphy) Summers at home in Casey County, the second of five children. He graduated from Liberty High School in 1963.
Ronnie served as Airman 1st class in the U.S. Air Force in the late 60's. He married his devoted wife of 52 years, Mary Eileen (Goode) Summers, on June 17, 1967 at St. Bernard Catholic Church.
In 1970, Ronnie began his 31-year career at Columbia Gulf Transmission Company. Ronnie was known to many as the founder and president of the Casey County Pork Producers, which he started in 1985. The Pork Producers building at the Central Kentucky Ag/Expo Center in Liberty bears an honorary plaque with his name and picture on it, extolling his tremendous impact on pork farming in the county. He was a pork and beef farmer, lifelong FFA supporter (awarded an honorary FFA Degree in 1989), a 40+ year Casey County football booster, and a friend to anyone in need. Ronnie was an amazing son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.
Ronnie is survived by his wife, Eileen; sons, Craig (Jennifer), Marshall, Jayme (Gloria), and Darren Summers; 7 grandchildren, Miranda, Ronnie, Presley, Dalton and PJ Summers; Chelsey Skinner; and Zach Grider; 5 great-grandchildren, Hadley, Remi, and Zoey Summers; Marley Skinner; and Autumn Grider; sisters Gayle Renner, Kathy (Joe) Hatchett, and Katie (Tony) York; and numerous nephews and nieces. Ronnie was preceded in death by his parents, his older brother, Dwight, and his beloved grandson, Zach Summers.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Zach Summers Memorial Scholarship for Casey County High School students through the Casey County Bank or the Auberry - Gupton & Chandler Funeral Home or to Lifeline Home Health Care.
Auberry - Gupton & Chandler Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
