Dearest Fran & Family, I am so very sad to hear the news of cousin Ron’s passing. In my childhood i always remember the fun times we had when my Aunt Edna and Ron would visit. And i never forget his generosity when i was at Aunt Edna’s funeral service in a huge rainstorm, i had no way to return home and he had his driver bring me all the way back to Manhattan. From all your posts Fran, over the years, I’ve learned what and amazing, kind and special person my cousin continued to be throughout his life. He’s now your Angel in Heaven watching over you and also with my sister Carole, who passed in 2013. I will always remember him fondly with his endearing smile 💕 With much love and warm hugs, cousin Judy

Words fail to express our sorrow for your loss. Ron has made a difference in so many lives. He was an exceptionally kind, warm, and loving person. We will always remember our time, though brief, that we were able to share with Ron, his stories, laughter, and smile. Ron left a lasting impression on anyone he crossed paths with. Our deepest condolences to the Acquaviva Family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Tom McCloskey left a message on November 19, 2020:
I'm crushed by the tragic loss of one of the most decent men, loving husbands, father and grandfather I have ever known in my life. Ron was like a second/third father to me before and after the loss of my own father and father-in-law. Not to mention a loyal and trusted client for 20+ years of my legal career while in private practice. I am so, so sorry to hear this. I have been praying for him every day since first learning of his illness. I have a HEAVY, HEAVY heart - for him, Fran, Chris, Greg, Gerard, Jeff and all in the family. Hits home and hard for me. He was a good and decent man with such a big heart who helped so many - especially me. May God give you all comfort and peace in this difficult time of such deep personal loss. Love you Ron and all. - Tom McCloskey & Family ❤️😪

CHRISTOPHER & MARSHA ACQUAVIVA left a message on November 19, 2020:
There are no words that a son can ever say about his father. All he can do is take the lessons he learned from him and share them with his family and in this case just hope he does half the job this father did and he will be a success. Some men were blessed with the ability to raise their family while some men are blessed to raise families. My father was one of those men, for he has touched the lives of many families and helped them somewhere along their journey. As these next few days unfold that will become more and more evident. Hopefully we can all just take a little piece of him and share it with someone else. If we do, the world will be a better place.
Fátima Cristina ZAGURSKI left a message on November 19, 2020:
