Ron Connally, 64, of Amarillo, died Saturday, September 29, 2018.

Memorial services will be at 2:00 P.M., Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at Hillside Christian Church South Campus, 6901 Bell St. with Steve Rogers and Craig Albracht officiating.  Private burial will be at Llano Cemetery.  Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.

Ron was born on June 8, 1954 in Guymon, Oklahoma to Bonnie and H. G. “Bud” Connally. Ron graduated from Tascosa High in 1972 and received a bachelor’s degree from WTAMU. Ron and Tina were married May 28, 1982 in Amarillo, Texas. He was a custom homebuilder, building homes around the Panhandle since 1984.

Ron loved building houses, he was very active in the Texas Panhandle Builders Association, was President of the Texas Association of Builders in 2009, and also served as director on the National Association of Homebuilders. Ron was awarded the Texas Association of Builders ‘Builder of the Year’ in 2011.

A man of many talents and hobbies, he loved playing golf with his friends, anything to do with speed – from his hot rod to his Harley – a good cigar, and listening to live music. Ron is best described as a Christian, mentor, socialite, hard-worker, and man of integrity.

He most enjoyed spending time with his wife, kids and their spouses, especially with his recent title promotion to grandpa.

He will live on through his wife, Tina Connally, of the home; two daughters, Cari Morrison and husband Colby of Amarillo; Kalee Nofsinger and husband Jonathan of Dallas; his son, Brennan Connally and wife Leah; his mother, Bonnie Connally; his brother, Randy Connally and wife Christy; and his mother-in-law, Pattie Waters, all of Amarillo; and one grandchild, Channing Nofsinger.

    My deepest sympathy to the family. I too have many great memories of Ron and his contributions to the TPBA, and also to numerous families in our community. I especially will cherish memories of Ron while working with him to construct our Son’s new home.

    Ronnie was one-of-a-kind. I can remember the 1st time I met him….I think it was at a surprise birthday party in my garage. Ron and Tina always made things FUN. I am so shocked at his passing and am broken-hearted that his grandchildren will miss knowing him. I just want to cry! The Panhandle area has lost a great builder and the kindest and compassionate business partner. We will all miss his welcoming smile. May the angels greet you at their door, Ronnie. Till we meet again.

  • Trisha & Kirk Hill Posted October 2, 2018 1:45 pm

    Enjoyed workin with Ron for several years on his fabulous bew homes! Have had the privilege of partying with him and Tina! He will be remembered by many, many friends! Our prayers are with Tina and the family.

  • Herschel and Diane Taylor Posted October 2, 2018 2:10 pm

    We are so sad. Ron and Brennan built our home, completed in June 2018, and we never even talked to another builder after meeting Ron. Ron was it! We grew to love this man and felt close to his whole family by our conversations. A more honest, trustworthy, and competent builder does not exist. God bless this family during this trying and sad time.

    The moment I heard, my heart broke. Tina, I wish I lived closer because I want to hug you and cry with you. Ronnie was always very sweet to me and even before you married, he told me his plan was to spend his life making you a happy lady. You were blessed to find each other. I have no doubt that he fulfilled his plan. You and your family are in my prayers. Love and hugs, Cindy

    Ron was a great builder to work with and for. Especially as his time in the Texas Panhandle Builders Association. I always remember the fact that if I had questions regarding the TPBA, he took the time to explain it to me. He was a good leader to follow and he will be greatly missed by those that had the privilge of working with him.

    May God comfort Tina and their family with His Peace. Ron was a wonderful Christian man and it showed in all that he did. His building of homes, leadership, mentoring in his field and more, touched so many lives in such a positive way. He will be greatly missed.

    Saddened to hear of Rons passing. I have fond memories of getting to know Ron and serving on the school board with him. He was dedicated to all the people and kids in the district and he will be missed. Our prayers are with all Ron’s family and those who grieve for him. May God wrap his loving arms around you and comfort you. God Bless! Isiaiah 40:31.

    Ron and I visited many times during our real estate careers in Amarillo. He went to church with his family and was always well thought of. He personally gave me
    a tour of his last home Tina and he were preparing to sell. They loved their kids. I always liked the kind of carpet Ron chose for his homes. He was a great builder.
    He will be greatly missed in the Amarillo Community.

  • Chris and Debbie Caldwell Posted October 3, 2018 2:48 pm
