Dear Joyce and family. Just was made aware of Ron's passing. After knowing him and working with him for 55 years, all I can say is how devastated we are. He pulled up to our house in a small sports car the first time we met. Loved him from day one. Our daughter was the first to have him take care of her as a baby in making sure we had the proper life insurance policy to cover her in case of our uncertain future. That was 53 years ago. Oh my, we did love Ron. We will miss him and his "jibes"!! Our sincerest thoughts are with you.

Dear Gioia and Family,

I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of bantering back and forth with Mr. Persuitte when I was over your house during our high school years. I was happy to be fed by he and your mom's Italian cooking any chance I got. He makes the best shrimp scampi to this day! I'll also never forget our epic sailing adventure. ;) Sending lots of love your way. May time heal and his spirit live on in our recollection of these fond memories in his presence. Hugs to you all.

Dear Joyce and their family,
I am the oldest grandchild of Dot and Ken Cook. They have both past a few years ago. I know that my grandparents were very fond of Ron. They spent time with you both. Ron was always a bubbly man. He always had a smile on his face. I do know my grandparents always spoke highly of Ron.
God Bless,
Linda Belli
