Ronald Sells (Bugs 1%er)

August 17, 1946 — December 4, 2023


Ronald Sells, better known as Bugs 1%er, has left us on December 4, 2023, to embark on his final ride to the great beyond. Born on August 17, 1946, in Canton, Ronald was a charismatic and larger-than-life personality who touched the lives of many.

A man of many talents, Ronald pursued a diverse range of careers during his time on this earth. He excelled as a certified machinist and mechanic, showcasing his technical skills in every project he undertook. Additionally, he had a knack for home improvement, carpentry, and construction, leaving behind a legacy of masterfully crafted creations.

Ronald's love for motorcycles was legendary. Riding his Harley with the wind in his face and the thrill coursing through his veins brought him immeasurable joy. The open road was his sanctuary where he experienced absolute freedom and lived life to the fullest. His unwavering passion for riding inspired others to chase their dreams fearlessly.

However, Ronald's adventures extended beyond the roads. He had an insatiable appetite for life and knew how to party like a rockstar. His presence at gatherings was electrifying, lighting up any room he entered. With laughter and cheer always in abundance when he was around, he created lasting memories that will be cherished by all who had the privilege of sharing those moments with him.

Education played an important role in Ronald's life. He graduated from McKinley High School as part of the Class of 1964, setting the stage for a future filled with success and accomplishment. Following his graduation, he embarked on an apprenticeship at Timkin High School where he honed his skills and acquired valuable knowledge that would shape his career trajectory.

Ronald's exceptional personality commanded respect and admiration from all who crossed paths with him. A true legend in every sense of the word, he blazed trails that inspired countless others to follow their own passions. His determination, resilience, and unwavering spirit set an example for generations to come.

While his professional achievements were notable, Ronald's proudest accomplishments centered around his family. He had an unbreakable bond with his children, showering them with love and guiding them through life's ups and downs. His devotion to his grandkids knew no bounds, as he cherished every moment spent with them, leaving an indelible mark on their lives.

Ronald will be dearly missed by his surviving family and friends. He is survived by his wife, Zella M Sells, who he married in June 1993, as well as his sons Eddie H (Julie) Perretti Sells and Jimi (Ginger) Fisher, his daughter Heidi (Tim) Gorman, his daughters-in-law Jessica Miller and Michelle Bordelon, and his grandchildren Angelina, Serenity, Jersey, Brandon, Maddison, Anthony, Alexis, Calii. He will also be dearly missed by his cousins Mike Lamb and Cris Beadle. Ronald was preceded in death by his father Donald Sells and mother Gertrude Sells. His sister Carol A Butler and son Anthony F Perretti Sells also preceded Ronald in death.

In this time of mourning and reflection on Ronald's life, let us remember the joy he brought into our hearts. Let us honor him by continuing to pursue our passions with unwavering dedication and fearlessness. Ronald's legacy will endure through the memories we hold dear and the impact he made on our lives.

Farewell Bugs 1%er; may your final ride be filled with peace and eternal freedom. Ride in the Forever Chapter, Pops L&R-GBNF-
