Ronnie E. Chapman Sr., longtime resident of Roseville, died peacefully in his sleep on May 2, 2020. He was 76 years of age.

Ronnie was born on December 18, 1943 in Jacksboro, Tennessee, one of seven children to the late Elmer and Euldene (Hatfield) Chapman. He was a 1961 graduate of Lincoln High School of Warren, where he was known as the "News Reporter." Ronnie was united in marriage to his beautiful wife, Martha Jane Taylor, on June 25, 1966 in Warren, Michigan. The couple lived in Warren until moving to Roseville in 1971. He worked many years for Square D Electric of Madison Heights and retired in 2008 from Freeman Manufacturing of Roseville after 24 years of dedicated service.

Ronnie was known as the "Mayor" of his neighborhood. From Gratiot Avenue to Beaconsfield everyone knew his name and was the beacon of hope to his community. He enjoyed being out of the house everyday, woodworking or tending to his garden. Ronnie always looked forward to his fishing trips with his wife on Henderson Lake in Lupton, Michigan. He also enjoyed Hunting and was quite the Antique Collector. Ronnie will always be known for his gift of social networking, his value of friendship, his kindred spirit and his words of wisdom. He loved his family dearly and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. His light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

Ronnie was the loving and devoted husband of the late Martha; dearest father of Ronnie (Teena) Jr. and Richard (Tracy); cherished grandfather of Ryan, Samantha, Kyle and Isabel; dear great grandfather of Ellie, Nicolas and Everly; dearest brother of Billy (Cheryl) Hatfield, Gayle Taylor, Kathy (James) Huffman, Donna (Eddie) Stanford and the late Robert Chapman, Orville (Barbara) Chapman and Michael McCulley; and beloved uncle to many nieces and nephews.

We are so sorry to hear about Ronnie. We were Roseville neighbors for over 25 years living across the street from each other. Our kids grew up together. We shared many backyard get togethers. Ron was always willing to help whenever we needed him. If I was out shoveling snow he would always come across the street to help me. He was one of the most friendly and caring people I ever met. Always had a kind word for everyone. Whenever they had a party they would park cars in our driveway and we would park in their driveway when we had a party. Halloween was the most fun. Ron and Martha always had the best Halloween display of anyone in the neighborhood. He will be greatly missed. Hope all your special memories help during this most difficult time. Please accept our condolences Ronnie, Richard and your families. May God Bless You. Ted and Linda Barbret

My name is Sandra Graham. I am a friend of Dan Hodgson. Dan visited Mr. Chapman on a regular basis and I had the privilege to accompany him a few times. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Death is the enemy of us all. But John 5:28,29 show there is hope of seeing our loved ones again. So sorry for your loss.
