I first met Ron as freshmen at Bristol High School. We became great friends and remained close ever since, for 67 years. Through the years we shared many adventures together while trying our best to stay out of trouble ice skating, skiing, scuba diving, sports cars, waterskiing, fishing, sailing, raising kids, drinking wine and many beers. My family and I were fortunate to frequently partake of Ron’s gourmet cooking. I shall miss his kindness, generosity, intelligence, humor, and companionship. Ron was a true entrepreneur, great friend and a great guy. I miss him. Godspeed, Ron buddy.
To my dear friend Suzanne Lavoie Dell'Orfano and her whole family, we are so very sorry for your loss. After reading about his amazing life and his passions I see so much of him in Suzanne and her girls, his granddaughters. Ron's legacy is truly a blessing. May all your memories be a blessing and give you comfort.
