April 18, 1959 – Oct. 29, 2023

Memorial services for Ronald Carl Promise, Sr.,64, of Houston, TX, who died Sunday, October 29, 2023, in Houston, will be held Saturday, November 18, 2023 at 4:00 P.M. at West Gate Funeral Home (George F. West Sr. Memorial Chapel).

Ronald was born on April 18, 1959, the son of Audrey Jackson Promise and John Thomas Promise, Sr. He wore many hats as a truck driver, jailer, and a security guard/supervisor. Ronald enjoyed watching television shows including westerns, Black Lightning, and especially “Hattie” from the Madea plays and movies; sports of all kinds, and Televangelist TD Jakes, his favorite. He also enjoyed traveling and spending time with his family and friends. But none of these things compared to him being an avid reader, student, and teacher of God’s Holy Bible.
