A Homegoing Celebration, honoring the life of Rondre Lamar Hornbeak, age 38, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Macedonia Baptist Church. His final resting place will be in Abramsville Cemetery in Gene Autry with his Pastor, the Rev. John Roberts, officiating.

Rondre died Aug. 22, 2014. He was born in Ardmore, Nov. 25, 1975, to Brenda Kay Brown and Ronnie Luther Hornbeak. He attended Heritage Christian Center and Ardmore High School. Rondre accepted Christ as Lord and Savior and was baptized July 7, 2007, under the leadership of Pastor John Roberts at Macedonia Baptist Church. He loved the Lord. He would stand during Sunday School and give his testimony about God’s love. Rondre was a big help to his family. He had a special place in his heart for his nephew Quinten and niece Derika. He always encouraged them to pursue their dreams, while assisting Derika with the cleaning of her room. He called Quinten his godson, while Derika was his little girl. He and Mamo Sarah took care of each other. He would drive her to and from paying bills and grocery shopping. They had a joke between themselves as being the poorest two in the family. He and his great-aunt Medie had a pastime of having lunch at Casey’s. He loved those times. Rondre’s passion for life was with his family and serving his family. He was an aide to them in every way possible. After the death of his parents, his aunt Gwen Willis, uncle James and the late Evelyn Agers-Hornbeak, stepped into his life and helped rear him. Aunt Gwen and Uncle James remain special in his life today. Rondre’s death came as a shock to all.

He was preceded in death by his father Ronnie Luther in 1988, his mother Brenda Kay in 1989, and his paternal grandfather Luther Hornbeak in 1989.

He leaves to mourn his death, yet, to forever cherish those precious memories, two daughters, Darian of Tulsa, and Mariah of Edmond; paternal grandmother Sarah Hornbeak, Dunbar; three sisters and a brother-in-law, Ronesha and Derrick Roberts, Ardmore, Yvette Vasquez and Valerie Hornbeak and a brother, Luther Hornbeak, each of Las Cruces, N.M.; a great-aunt, Almedia Roberts; special cousins with whom he grew up, Cardell Hornbeak, Baeyan Brown and Ursula Hill; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, numerous other cousins and a host of friends.
