Ronald DeVore was born on July 22, 1950 to his late parents Leroy and Rosabell DeVore in Bronx, NY. 
Ronald attended Evander Childs High School, in Bronx, New York and soon after graduation he enlisted in the US Navy. He had a tour of duty in Vietnam. After returning home from the service, Ronald eventually relocated to Atlanta, Georgia. Shortly after arriving, he started an over thirty-year career in the construction business. He was very proud of the buildings that he helped build and often pointed them out to friends and family. 
Ronald loved cars, clothes, music and reminiscing with old friends. He was raised in the Bronx, in the Edenwald Housing Development and remained friends with many of the people he grew up with. The world will be a different place for many without him. 
On Thursday, March 15, 2018 at his residence in Ridgeland, SC Ronald was called from labor to reward. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his sister, Ellaree Stewart and son in love, William Reynolds. 
Left to celebrate his life are: his sons, Roeson DeVore, Rhakeem Wiggins; son and daughter in love, Evan Reynolds and Bridget Reynolds Bonny; siblings: Alma Reed, Isaiah DeVore, Jaklyn DeVore, Denyse DeVore, Lesley Leslie (Lloyd) and Antoine DeVore; longtime companion, Tomeeka Barnes; grandchildren, Torrey, Bianca, Ciara, Symone and Jordyn; grandchildren in love, Kiyana, Jeancyrius, Jr., Takiema, Takasia, Somalia & Evan; aunts: Evelyn Peterson, Thelma Harris, Edna Walton (Leon), Ruth Knight and Delores Riggins; uncle, Enoch Chaneyfield; very special cousin, Jack DeVore; along with a host of nieces, nephews, and scores of other cousins and friends.
Ronald loved life, his family and friends. Let’s celebrate him by loving a little harder and letting go of unimportant things. Life is much too short to be miserable.
