Funeral service celebrating the life of Ronald Lary Carlisle of West Monroe, LA will be held at 2:00pm, Wednesday, December 9, 2020 in the chapel of Griffin Funeral Home, 911 Warren Drive, West Monroe, with Pastor Kevin Stewart officiating.
Interment will follow at Antioch Cemetery, West Monroe, under the direction of Griffin Funeral Home.

Ronnie was born on December 28, 1951 to John Robert and Beatrice Carlisle and passed from this life on December 5, 2020 in the comfort of his home surrounded by his family and close friends at the age of 68.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Beatrice Hearold Carlisle and his father,
John Robert "Bob" Carlisle, brothers Roger Dean Carlisle, Toby Carlisle, sisters, Lucy Evans, Louise Allen, uncles, Wesley Hearold, JD Hearold and cousin baby
Steven Trent Eyre.

Those left to cherish his memories include his sons, Ronald Jeffrey "JefP' Carlisle, and Cathy of West Monroe, LA Robert Carlisle and April of Quitman,LA Daughter Kelly Carlisle of Orlando, FL, grandchildren Sarah Malone and Ashley of West Monroe, LA, Nicholas Canales of Downsville, LA, Cheyenne Carlisle of
Quitman, LA, great grandchildren Aly Malone and Tucker Malone of West Monroe, LA, sisters, Pat Terry and Wesley of Channelview, TX, Barbara Horne and Lew of Hattisburg,MS, and Betty Carlisle Smith of Jonesboro, LA.

During much of his life he worked in the oil field industry as a professional driller. He began his career as a driller with Jet Drilling Company at the age of 26, making him the youngest man to achieve that position. He led a 5-man crew with few
turnovers and no lost time accidents. The safety of his men was always his top
priority and everyone on his crew always made it home safely.
In his free time, you could always find him tinkering on anything with a motor,
from cars to small engines to appliances. If he couldn't fix it, chances were nobody else would be able to either. You may have seen him riding in his cherished black
truck listening to Merle Haggard or singing a Johnny Cash song. Watching old
westerns was his favorite way to relax.

He was a gentle giant with solid morals. His Uncle Wesley taught him to always
shoot straight across the shoulder and never hesitate to step up and help someone in need. If you were fortunate enough to have made his acquaintance, you came
away a little better for it. He was a smart man and would rather teach you how to do something than do it for you. He had a great sense of humor, touched the lives of many and he will be greatly missed.
