Pastor Ronnie Cuvillier
October 24, 1953 – February 29, 2020
Ronnie Cuvillier, best known as Brother Ronnie, a lifetime resident of East St. Mary Parish, went on to glory on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at the age of 66. Brother Ronnie was a passionate pastor to many and a tireless investor in all. He leaves behind a legacy characterized by a loving family and a vibrant body of believers whose lives are forever impacted by his influence.
A well-known and respected member of our community, Brother Ronnie was a master of many trades. To name a few, he worked in the oilfield industry as a salesman, was a marine electrician, worked as a carpenter, and professionally tuned pianos (He even tuned Ray Charles’ piano once at the Morgan City Auditorium.) before he dedicated his life to ministry. With a humble and gracious heart, Brother Ronnie founded Higher Ground Family Church in Stephensville dedicating his life to mending the brokenhearted, strengthening the weak, and building the Kingdom. He instilled truth, honor, integrity, excellence, and love into every life he encountered and every project he accomplished. He exemplified to the world a man after God’s own heart, a mighty man of valor.
Brother Ronnie was a phenomenal husband to his high school sweetheart of 46 years, Myrna Beaugh Cuvillier; an outstanding dad to his two children, Christine Cuvillier and Chet Cuvillier and his wife, Reneé; and an astronomical Paw-Paw to his four grandkids, Harmony Rose, Daisy Joy, Corban Russell, and Boaz Alexander. He was son to Russell Cuvillier, Sr. (deceased) and O’Nealia Ragin and was a supportive brother to his siblings, Gloria Comeaux, Bobby Cuvillier, and Russell Cuvillier, Jr.
Brother Ronnie was preceded in death by his father and his step-mother, Mary Cuvillier.
