West Columbia-Ronnie Lee Jeffcoat, 52, succumbed to cancer at the comfort of his own home surrounded by his family on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.
Ronnie is survived by his 5 children, Mary (Vicki) Jeffcoat, Ashley Jeffcoat, Kayla Jeffcoat, Jonathan Pitts and Joshua Jeffcoat; 4 grandchildren, Liam Gradel, Josie Holiday, Samuel (Sambo) Holiday, and Violet (Lizzi) Grade; and many loving nieces, nephews and extended family. Ronnie was a caring father, grandfather, and friend to everyone. Ron loved sports, especially football, where his favorite team was South Carolina Gamecocks. He worked as a lab technician for 15 years. Ron spent his free time spending time with his children and grandchildren. He loved being outdoors sitting in the sun, joking around, and would always randomly start dancing or rapping to LL Cool J. Ron also loved to kick back with his friends and watch football, no matter who was playing as long as football was on. He also enjoyed watching drama and horror movies. Ron was always there to help family and friends with household projects, or whatever else people needed him for. He was a hardworking man and even better father. Dad said becoming a father was his greatest accomplishment.
A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, June 12, 2021 at Faith Presbyterian Church 1811 Dutch Fork Rd. Irmo SC 29063. The family will receive friends from 10:00 am to 11:00 am prior to the service at the church. Burial will follow at Lexington Memorial Cemetery. Barr-Price Funeral Home and Crematorium, Lexington Chapel is assisting the family.
A special thank you to the employees at MSA Hospice in Columbia for their loving care and support during Dad’s final days and to Gena Brooks and Aretha Brown.
