February 27, 1957 ~ June 5, 2024

Born in: Asheville, North Carolina
Resided in: Candler, North Carolina

Mr. Ronnie Lee Flowers, son of the late Clyde and Delila Flowers was born February 17, 1957 in Asheville, NC. He attended the Asheville public school system until he finished high school at Lee Edwards High.

Ronnie was a devout Christian who in his early years attended Oak Grove Baptist church in Brevard, NC. For much of his life he was a professional painter serving the western North Carolina community. He was married to Susan Diane Flowers in July of 1987 and would lead to the birth of their two sons.

Above all else, Ronnie was a family man, and devoted husband. Family was his priority, and he was an anchor for all that he loved. He was an avid motorcycle enthusiast who often would ride in charity events; such as Toys For Tots. He always went above and beyond for the holiday season and more often than not would have more Christmas decorations than a house could hold.

His life was a testament to what it meant to be tough, through many illnesses and extended hospital stays he triumphed and gave those he loved an extra twenty more years than what was expected. Surviving a major stroke, a broken neck, a heart attack, pancreatitis induced a nearly two-month coma, and the recent sepsis that he overcame earlier this year. He was a warrior with a heart even bigger than his own resolve. All that knew him will be blessed for many years to come holding close to all the happy memories shared.

His legacy is survived by his wife Susan Flowers, his sons Ronnie and Joshua Flowers, his grandchildren Christian, Leyton, Raelyn, and Ezekiel Flowers. His siblings Clyde Flowers, Darlene Largent, and Donna Lusk.

There will be a private celebration of life held on Sunday the 16th of June for immediate family and close friends, to celebrate what was truly a life well lived.

Groce Funeral Home at Lake Julian is assisting the family.
