November 11, 1954 - January 29, 2022
Ronald "Ronnie" Joseph Abbott, age 67 of Millville, passed away Saturday morning, January 29, 2022 at Cooper Medical Center in Camden. Ronnie was the beloved son of the late Alice and Robert Abbott Sr. Ronnie attended special classes at Bacon Elementary School in Millville, and received an honorary diploma from Millville Senior High School in 1976. He was a member of the Socialites at the Evanoff Center, and he participated in Special Olympics in Track and Field, and Bowling. He loved music, especially The Beatles, and anything Motown and Disco. Ronnie lived in a Group Home and attended the day program at Upper Deerfield Senior Center. Ronnie was special, but only because a test classified him as "special." Ronnie taught all of us the true definition of kindness and unconditional love. Anyone who knew Ronnie became a better person because of him. Some became teachers, others became more understanding and loving. He was a presence in his neighborhood and everyone smiled when they saw Ronnie and his mom walking or biking. Ronnie's life made a difference for all those who knew him. Ronnie is survived by his loving family: Brother, Robert Abbott Jr.; Sister and Brother-in-law, Gail and Don Headley; Nieces, Allison Headley, Erin Erlandson (John), and Kim Ale (David); Aunt, Frances Abbott; Honorary Sister, Terry Shaw; and many cousins near and far. His Family wishes to thank all of his caregivers at Caring House 5 in Millville. You were his "second" family and he loved all of you dearly. A celebration of Ronnie's life is being planned for a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Christy Funeral Home, Millville. Donations in Ronnie's memory can be made to The Arc of Cumberland County, 1680 W. Sherman Ave., Vineland, NJ 08360. Memories and expressions of sympathy for Ronald J. Abbott may be shared on the Obituary Tribute Wall at www.christyfuneralservice.com.
