Ronnie Paul, a long time Page resident, passed away in September 2017. He was 54 years old.
Ronnie was best known for his amazing musical talent and creativity, which emerged at an early age, especially his genius on the guitar. He headlined at legendary clubs like Gazzarri’s on Sunset Boulevard and the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California in his 20s. Ronnie and his various bandmates entertained at virtually every venue in the Page/Lake Powell area, as well at the Buckskin Tavern in Fredonia, in Winslow, and at Lake Havasu and the Brian Head ski resort. Ronnie worked in a variety of “real” jobs while pursuing his music career, including: the garden department at Walmart, Roadrunner Fire and Safety, and Southwest Plumbing.
Ronnie was an incredibly skilled carpenter who worked on all sorts of projects creating anything from birdhouses to shopping malls, hand rails to hotels, tree houses to apartment complexes.
Ronnie is survived by his mother, Nancy Doble (Paul), of Greenehaven; sister, Cindy (Byron) Sanderson, of Page; brother, Eric (Kathy) Paul, of Durango, Colo.; sister, Carli (Robert) Andi, of Yucca Valley, Calif.; daughter, Jennifer Frances; aunt, Sally and uncle, Jerry; cousins, Sharon, Susan, Stacie and Sabrina; nieces, Rebecca, Jadyn, Jordyn and Ava; nephews, Jacob and Nicholas; and step-moms, Andrina Frank and Judy Paul.
Ronnie is deeply missed but his music and memory will keep rockin’ on.
Ronnie’s life will be celebrated at a memorial service to the held at 2 p.m., on Nov. 11, 2017 at the Lake Powell Church of the Nazarene. In lieu of flowers the family respectfully suggests a donation to me made in Ronnie’s honor to one of his favorite local charities: Another Way Women’s support Group/Family Bargain Center; the Cancer Outreach Program, or Best Friends Animal Sanctuary
