Obituary for Ronald W. Holmes

Ronald W. Holmes of Vancleave, MS, passed away at the age of 54 on March 21, 2018. Ron is survived by his wife, Natalia Rebets Holmes. At the time of his passing, Ron was serving at First Baptist Church Vancleave as Associate Pastor of Membership/Outreach Ministry.

Along with his wife, Ron is survived by his parents, Billy and Linda Holmes of Slidell, LA, and sister, Robin Holmes of Slidell, LA; brother, Warren (Randy) Holmes (Michele), of D’Iberville, MS; niece, Diamond Holmes, nephew, Gordon Manni and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Ron loved Natalia, his family, his church family and his many friends across the world. More than anything, Ron loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, dedicating his entire adult life to ministry.
Ron had a passion for outdoor things such as fishing, but his true passion was being a “fisher of men”. He began his ministry serving as student pastor of Juniper Grove Baptist Church, Poplarville, MS; and then went on to serve at West Union Baptist Church, Carriere, MS; 15th Avenue Baptist Church, Meridian, MS; FBC Louisville, Louisville, MS; FBC Vancleave, Vancleave, MS; FBC Ocean Springs, Ocean Springs, MS. Prior to returning to Vancleave in 2015, Ron worked as a missionary through the Southern Baptist International Mission Board, serving in Ukraine and Russia.
Ron received a Master’s in Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in 1996. Prior to his calling in ministry, Ron had plans to pursue a career in business, and received a Master’s in Business Administration from Southeastern Louisiana University in 1990 and a Bachelor of Science in Business from Louisiana College in 1989.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018, at First Baptist Church of Vancleave from 9:00am until 10:00am with a Memorial service beginning at 10:00am. Afterwards, there will be a visitation at Juniper Grove Baptist Church in Poplarville, MS, from 2:00pm until 3:00pm. Funeral services will begin at 3:00pm. Interment will immediately follow at Juniper Grove Cemetery.

The family would like to thank Hospice of Light for the loving care they provided during Ron’s illness. In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations be made to First Baptist Church of Vancleave for International Missions, 12513 Highway 57, Vancleave, MS 39565.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
