Glenn "Chip" Ronnie, 66, a lifelong resident of the Middletown area, peacefully passed away Friday, August 19th, at home with his family by his side. Chip was born in Point Pleasant, on May 29, 1956, a son of the late Beverly (McTighe) and Glenn Ronnie, Sr. After his mother remarried, he was also raised by his stepfather, Darrel “Pops” Maloney.
Chip started selling cars in 1979 and fell in love with the car business. Especially loving Used vehicles, he became a respected and rare honest Used car manager. Anyone that knew Chip in the business respected him as a great “car guy”. Towards the end of his 41-year career, he was a buyer and seller for dealerships that had trusted him with his expertise.
Chip had a great sense of humor and was probably best known for his one-liners. He loved spending time with his family and his life-long friends that were like family. In his spare time, Chip could often be found fishing, enjoying a Budweiser with friends, and spending time with his beloved dog Bailey. He will be fondly remembered as a loving father, brother and friend.
Chip is survived by two children; his daughter and son-in-law, Nicole and Michael Butkocy; and his son Christian Ronnie. He also leaves behind two sisters, Kim Lopez and Renee Ronnie; along with two brothers, Shawn and his wife Anita Maloney and Darrel Maloney as well by his Uncle Derf and his nieces and nephews Ryan, Teddie, Ashley, Chelsea, Taylor, Dawn and Martina. Chip was predeceased by his sister Missy Maloney.
It was Chip’s wishes that there were no services, however there will be a celebration of life held on Friday, August 26th for family and friends at the Elks Club in Red Bank, NJ from 6:30-9:30pm
Please feel free to leave your condolences for the family here on his Memorial Page.
