One day was all it took for the community of San Angelo to come together and support a family whose hearts are broken.

On Friday October 21, 2016 Ronnie and Braxton were doing what they loved best, spending the afternoon fishing but most of all spending time together!


Sadly, the afternoon ended in tragedy when Braxton got to close to the water and fell in. Ronnie fearlessly did what any grandpa would do, entered the water to save his grandbaby.


Unfortunately, the conditions of the water were to overwhelming and both precious lives were taken.


Ronnie, 61 leaves behind 3 children....Dustin, Heather and Ronda Strain. Ronda Strain, mother of 4-year-old Braxton.


The Family is in desperate need of help with funeral expenses. ANY donation would be greatly appreciated. Please keep the Strain family in your thoughts and prayers during their difficult time!

A Gofundme page was set up for the victims and their funeral arrangements. San Angelo pulled through and raised the $15k goal in less than a day.

Townsquare Media San Angelo offers our prayers, strength, and deepest condolences to the families during this difficult time.

Rest Easy, Mr. Strain and little Braxton.
