Due to recent changes to CDC guidelines during COVID-19, we ask that all visitors please wear masks, and refrain from hugging the family.

Thanks for understanding and for showing us love and support during such a trying time.

The very busy and useful life of Ronald Clarence Routon, age 64, came to a close unexpectedly on Sunday morning, July 12th in Lake St. John, Louisiana. He was born in San Antonio, Texas at Fort Sam Houston Hospital on May 8, 1956. He was a 1974 graduate of Harrisonburg High School and a 1977 graduate of Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business. He was an avid preservationist of all the natural resources Louisiana has to offer. He married Susan Cox Routon on July 3, 1975. He worked in the vast oilfield of central Louisiana and managed abundant family farmland for over 40 years. During this time, he built a beautiful family and resided on the family farm. Subsequent to the death of his first wife, Ron wed Susanne Robertson Routon on October 16, 2009 and continued to live a full life in the Jonesville area. He was currently employed by Robertson Energy as Lease Operator in Lake St. John, LA. He displayed a wonderful knack for solving problems along with a unique sense of humor. Ron truly lived life through simple pleasures, chatting with friends and family, enjoying family gatherings and working in the natural state. The quote of an unknown author beautifully sums how the family is left feeling: “There is an aching void in all of us, but he has not left us, but instead he has preceded us. The only time something is lost is if you don’t know where it is. He is not lost because we know where he is.”

Ron was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents- Clarence F. Routon, Sr. and Imogene Routon; maternal grandparents- Ronald Richardson and Myrtle Richardson; and his first wife- Susan Cox Routon.

He leaves behind his wife- Susanne Robertson Routon of Jonesville, LA; parents- Clarence F. Routon, Jr. and JoAnn R. Routon of Jonesville, LA; three sisters- Rhonda Routon of West Monroe, Joan McHale of Jonesville, LA, and Catherine Regan of Jonesville, LA; daughter- Kristen Routon of West Monroe, LA; son- Justin Routon & his wife Sarah Garrett Routon of Magnolia, AR; step-daughter- Shana Shirley of Baton Rouge, LA; step-son- Landon Shirley of Birmingham, AL; three grandsons- Chandler Routon of West Monroe, LA; Christian Routon and Bowman Routon of Magnolia, AR; granddaughter- Eva Catherine Routon of Magnolia, AR; step-granddaughter- Hannah Veade of Baton Rouge, LA; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers will be Kerry Kirby, Gary King, Rox Routon, Kevin Routon, Robert Routon, Nick Costanza, Sam Costanza, Greg Terry and Ken Terry

Honorary pallbearer is Chandler Routon.
