On behalf of the entire South East Clown Association Board, I announce the untimely passing of Ronnie “Rollo” Cross, a great friend and colleague who has served on this board for many many years serving in five elected positions of President Elect, President, Treasurer, Chaplain, Past President, and appointed to Education Director several times.
Ronnie always had a smile for everyone. Gentle but passionate about his clowning, he has been a core ingredient on the SECA Board. He extended his love in the art form with his membership in World Clown Association serving in elected positions including Past President. He was also a long-time and good standing member of Clowns of America International (COAI). His allegiance to the Jolly Raleigh Clown Alley in Raleigh, North Carolina also brought much more to his circle of many friends.
We send our love and heartfelt condolences to his beloved Vicki and their family. No words can mend the pain right now. We ask our members to pray and/or keep Vicki in your thoughts during this very difficult time. We want her to know how special Ronnie was to all of SECA and a chasm he leaves.
Bob “Bunky” Gretton, President
2015 South East Clown Association
