R.I.P. Ronald Abner of The Fabulous Peps - Family seeking help

We're very sad to report the death of Ronald Abner, a member of the 60s Detroit soul group The Fabulous Peps. Along with Tommy Hester and Joe Harris, Abner formed a group that had a big following in the Midwest and also some international attention as a killer live act with fantastic choreography.

The trio had moderate success with songs like "This I Pray," "My Love Looks Good on You," "Why Are You Blowing My Mind" (backed by Booker T and the MGs), "So Fine" and their hometown ode, "Detroit, Michigan" before breaking up toward the end of the 1960s. However, their songs had a continuing life, particularly in Europe, where some of their songs became Northern Soul classics.

Abner died with financial problems, and his family has requested help in giving him a proper burial. They've started a GoFundMe page stating the following: Children and family of Ronald Abner, former member of The Fabulous Peps are in need of assistance to give him a much deserved home going. We are asking the assistance of fans and other lovers of the beautiful music enjoyed over the years by this fantastic group. We greatly appreciate and thank you all for your assistance.
