Afida’s tribute post comes just two days after Ronnie passed away at the age of 62.

Although bystanders reportedly attempted CPR, Ronnie was declared dead on the scene, and an investigation is ongoing.

Once the news was out, Ronnie’s mother, Tina, 83, quickly issued a statement about the tragedy on Instagram. “Ronnie, you left the world far too early. In sorrow, I close my eyes and think of you, my beloved son,” she wrote alongside a black and white close-up photo of herself with her eyes closed.
