Obituary

Our Father , Papa, Husband , Brother, and Uncle left this earth on January 13th 2022. He was 69 years old. He was born on January 25th 1952 to William Alfred McKee and Annie Mae (Williams) McKee. He was the baby of the family. He grew up in Ponca City, Oklahoma and attended Ponca City High School graduating with the class of 1970. He was proud to be a Wildcat. On January 8th 1970 he asked the love of his life to go steady. He always recalled, “I saw her big brown eyes and knew she was going to be my wife.” On May 29th 1971, they were joined in marriage. This past May they celebrated their 50th anniversary hosted by their children. They made their home in Ponca City, Oklahoma and had three children; Desiree Pruett husband Che, William McKee partner Shanesta, and Lisa Smith husband Paul. Ron has 9 grandkids Christopher Michael Pruett fiancé Olivia, Drew Ronald McKee, Abigail Lynn Smith, Sophia LeeAnn Smith, Ella Renee McKee , and William Liles McKee . Four bonus grandkids Brooklyn Rae Cook , Haven Nichole Cook, Phillip Barrett Cook, and Russell Smith. Two great grand kids Jaycob Ray Pruett, and Jordon Michael Pruett . He loved his grandkids so much and was their biggest supporter. Ron worked for Pioneer wholesale liquor . Where he was a warehouse supervisor. Shortly before Pioneer closed, he went to work for Albertsons warehouse till his retirement. Our dad took pride of his lawn. No one else could touch it because no one did it right . As kids we would always want to surprise him by mowing the lawn for him. It wasn’t till years later we found out he hated it. That shows what kind of dad we had. Dad loved music! He took pride in writing and singing. Picking his guitar was one of his favorite past times. He was in a few bands that traveled all over Oklahoma and played at many places. They had a following that loved their band. He passed the love of music to his kids and grandkids. Watching his kids play a instrument made him smile so big! He would also love to play for the people in nursing homes. He loved to make people dance, even if it was just them bouncing their knees. He loved his OSU cowboys. His collection was very unique and he loved showing it off. He had a room in his home painted orange just for his collection. Our dad was the most giving and dedicated person you could ever meet. During the hot summers, in Oklahoma, he would see someone walking and give them a ride. As a huge cowboys fan, he would trade the black and orange colors for any colors his grandkids were into to show support for them. The dedication he instilled into his kids was the same dedication he had with our mother. He loved and supported her and showed us that anything with work, can last. There was a golden rule that us kids had, and it was to never mention if any of the grand kids or any of us was in need of something, knowing that dad would run out and get it to beat you to it. We will miss you daddy. He is survived by his love of 50 years Mary Lynn ( Hawkins) McKee. His three children Desiree, Will and Lisa. Nine grandbabies Christopher, Drew, Abigail, Sophia, Ella, Liles, Brooklyn, Haven, and Barrett. Two great grandbabies Jaycob and Jordon. One sister Janice Devilbliss of Morris, Oklahoma.
