Obituary:
Ronnie Edward Massengill, Sr.

Everyone that knew Ron, as he was often known, knew some very key truths about him. First, he was a huge fan of Superman and, at one time, held an extensive collection that spanned decades. Second, he was a people person - it seemed like he knew almost everybody.

During his life he made a number of contacts with people. He wasn't afraid to start talking to someone, sharing his opinions on things that could be better and listening to others ideas. Through his contacts in the comic fandom circles and his community activities with W.A.N.T. and the E.C.C., he came into contact with celebrities, artists, writers, politicians, clergy, and even royalty. He had a gift for organization, something that was an asset to every endeavor he embarked upon. He also had an exceptional memory that helped him recall details of things at a moment's notice during any conversation.

Ron unexpectedly died on November 4th in the peacefulness of his apartment. He is survived by his parents Eunice and Farrell Massengill, his brother Jeff Massengill, his children, Krystal Fujii with her husband Nick, and Ronson MacLeod and his wife Karen, and his grandchildren Hunter and Brenden. He is also survived by several neices and nephews, cousins and very close friends.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2015 from 1pm to 4pm at BENSON FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, 3224 W Montrose Ave, Chicago, IL 60618
