R. Ronald Petrillo passed in peace on January 15, 2019 just days shy of his 87th birthday. Preceded in death, 19 months earlier, Keithlyn Petrillo, his wife, best friend and lifelong companion. Loving father of Tom (Karen), Jim (Michelle) and Tim (Susie).

Proud and loving grandfather of Ryan, Christina (Shawn), Ellie, Emma, Julia, Oliver, Bryce, Mattea and step-grandfather to Renee, Michael, and Ryan W. He was also a loving great grandpa to Liam and step great grandpa Olena and Elliott. Ron loved his brother Paul, nieces, nephews, many other family members and friends.

Ron had a deep commitment to God and his faith. He will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, unselfish friend and serial entrepreneur who loved business and became a champion for many social causes. He was a proud patriot and US Army veteran. Besides his family, his other love was gardening and fitness.

The family will host a private celebration of Ron’s life at St. Jude’s Cathedral on Tuesday January 22, 2019.

A special thank you to Dr. Arias and Ron's nurses Ariana, Cynthia, Michelle, Ava, and Irene, whose loving care through the years meant so much to Ron and his family.
