Rondi "Boom/Big Dog" Alanzo Jefferson, born to Lawrence and Ruth Jefferson on November 12,1965 in Richmond, Virginia. He was converted, baptized and joined Little Zion Baptist Church in 1977 under the leadership of Rev. G.W. Manning where his membership remained. He attended Powhatan County Public Schools. He was joined in marriage to Angela Bland on March 25, 1994. Rondi was self employed since 1996 for R. Jefferson and Sons Hauling, where he had a very dedicated employee/driver Dean Watson of Louisa, Virginia and his son, Travis. His first car a 1970 Chevelle, where he was given the nickname "Boom" for his passion for loud music. The love of racing was in his heart when he turned the Chevelle into a street racing car. His hobby was buying cars and fixing them up to race. He also had two 1967 Novas that he raced at various tracks such as, VA Motor Sports, Budds Creek, Richmond International and Colonial Beach. Not only did he have a love for cars but his dump trucks as well. This is when he received the nickname, "Big Dog". Yes, he could cook and enjoyed doing it whenever he got the chance. He enjoyed traveling to various places such as Florida, Maryland, Las Vegas, Bahamas, etc. with family and friends. He loved to joke and make people laugh. He had a love for ALL people whether he knew you or not. But by the end of the conversation you had an everlasting friendship and nothing but love for him and he had the same for you in return because his heart was so Kind, Loving and Giving. He always had a smile on his face no matter the circumstance or situation. The word "No" was never in his vocabulary, he would just say, "I'll get back with you", knowing all the time he was going to do whatever needed to be done. He was a God fearing and loving family man. On Sunday, February 27, 2011, Rondi departed this life at Little Zion Baptist Church while fulfilling his duty as an Usher. He was preceded in death by his great-grandmother, Vadie Young.
