His longtime friend and Agent of 38 years, Paul Mascioli commented “Ronnie was an international star who transcended all boundaries with his big heart and superb showmanship.  He was a working man’s entertainer and loved by people of all ages.  We’ll truly miss him but never forget him.” The versatile Ronnie Prophet was not only a country music singer and entertainer, but also a gifted impressionist, and entertaining storyteller, comedian and emcee.  He was born in Hawkesbury, ON and grew up in the community of Calumet, Quebec, the youngest of three children.   He immigrated to the U.S. in 1966, wintering in the Bahamas and performing at the Jack Tar Hotel. Ronnie’s next move was to Nashville, TN where he began playing at Boots Randolph’s Carousel Club which eventually became Ronnie Prophet’s Carousel Club.   The Ronnie Prophet Waiting Room at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN came about as a result of his performances with Danny Thomas.  Ronnie also worked Las Vegas, NV opening shows for Danny Thomas, Perry Como, and Frankie Valli. In the early 1970’s he made his television debut on the CBC series  summer replacement for The Tommy Hunter Show and moved on to CFTO on CTV network with his own show, Grand Old Country and The Ronnie Prophet Show which ran till 1981.  He also hosted the British Series, Ronnie Prophet Entertains.   In 1975 Prophet made his recording debut with his first hit single, “Sanctuary” which made the top 30 and was quickly followed by three more charted hits.  Over the next 40 years he continued to appear on television and toured internationally throughout the United States, Canada, the UK and New Zealand as well as USO tour in Europe.   In 1997 Ronnie and his singing partner wife Glory Anne moved to Branson, MO and performed at various theaters with their own show till their retirement in 2015 after which they settled down in sunny Tavares FL. Ronnie favorite pastime was playing guitar, but also enjoyed fishing and spent leisure time golfing at Celebrity Golf Tournaments. He loved spending time with family and the many friends he has made over the years during all his travels.  In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be sent to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.  https://www.stjude.org.  Please dedicate your donation to the Ronnie Prophet Memorial Fund.
