On Monday, July 24, 2023, God called home His good and humble servant, Mr. Ronnie (Lil Boy) Zachery, to enter eternal rest and peace. Ronnie was born July 25, 1955, in Kinston, Georgia, to the late Frank Thomas Zachery, Sr. and Virginia Zachery. Ronnie joined Queen Chapel Methodist Church in Kingston, Georgia, at an early age. He enjoyed his childhood alongside his twin brother Roy.
Ronnie enjoyed watching television, especially Westerns and Atlanta Falcons and Braves games. Talking loudly and smacking while eating food, you did not have to see him to know he was near.

He received his basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. He was then transferred to Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, South Carolina. Ronnie received his certification as a dental assistant and worked his next four years of service as assistant to his friend Dr. Yeager. During this time, he received an eye injury in a softball game that ended his military career.
Ronnie then moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he worked in the front office and as a dental assistant to Dr. Gregory Johnson for fifteen years. He also worked at Holy Cross Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, and Shaw Industries in Cartersville, Georgia.
