LELAND — Ronnie Earl McLamb, 61, of Leland, NC, passed away Monday, September 20, 2021, at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
“Ronnie Mac”, as he was known to his friends, was born November 8, 1959, in Benson NC, son of Edna Earle Raynor McLamb and the late Ollin McLamb.
Ronnie McLamb was the light of every room he walked in. He was the man with the best stories that kept everyone laughing. Ronnie was a very competitive athlete who cherished any sport he ever touched. His passion for competition started young when he became the ping pong state champion at South Johnston high school in 1977. His extraordinary hand eye coordination followed him in life becoming an avid tennis player whose skills where hard to match on the court. There was not one sport that Ronnie couldn’t master or loved but nothing would touch the passion he had for golf. Golf would prove to not only be his outlet from the grind of everyday life but the start of an unbreakable bond with his core group of buddies.
Ronnie settled in Wilmington in 1983 when he was 24 years old. He ventured from his beloved home of Benson to pursue new opportunities where he found his career in the sales industry. Port City Plumbing would soon come to be his 27-year devotion where he touched the lives of many and was able to work with his lifelong friend of 45 years, David Morrison. In 1989 he and his now former wife, Kimberly George, welcomed their baby boy into the world (Justin Tyler McLamb). Justin was his one and only son to carry out the McLamb name until he was blessed with a grandson (Jayden McLamb) who he cherished.
Ronnie was captivated by Felisha Williams and fell in love in August of 2017, where his extended bachelor life blossomed into a family man that included her two daughters Kelsey and Makenzie. Ronnie and Felisha were looking forward to their long-awaited wedding day and spending the rest of their lives together.
Ronnie was a dedicated Father, son, brother, spouse, and friend to so many. He was a man that loved music and would sing on every car ride no matter how short. His voice and stories will truly be missed by all the people that got the chance to know and love him.
In addition to his mother, he is survived by his son Justin Mclamb (Logan) Grandson Jayden McLamb; His soulmate and Fiancé Felisha Williams along with her daughters, Makenzie William DeVolld & Kelsey Williams. His siblings Tony Pleasant (Onnie); Jean Weeks (Douglas); Sharon Alford (Billy); & Barry McLamb.
A funeral service will be held at 3:00pm Saturday, September 25, 2021, at Andrews Mortuary Market Street Chapel. Prior to the service, the family will receive friends from 2:00pm until the service hour.
