Ralph Michael Presutti November 28, 1943 – March 30, 2013

Passed away on March 30, 2013 in Boca Raton, FL at the age of 69, following a courageous battle with cancer.

Ralph is survived by the love of his life, Linda(Hare), to whom he was married for 28 years. We should all be as lucky to have such a bond as theirs. His children include Christina Louise Vizzi of Margate Florida, Vicki Marie Hahn (Paul) of Waldorf, Maryland; Kristine Marie Schner (Larry) of Boca Raton, Florida; Robert Scott Stayrook (Shelly) of Pickerington, Ohio; Richard Douglas Presutti (Alison) of Coconut Creek, Florida and Jennifer Lynn Breitinger (Jeffrey) of Loxahatchee, Florida, Ralph and Linda’s 12 wonderful grandchildren . He is also survived by a sister, Joanne Blake (Robert) of Margate, Florida and countless relatives and friends who will share their memories for many years to come. He was the son of the late Claude and Rose Presutti of Clinton and is predeceased by his brother Claude P. and his sister Sue T. Dack.

Born and raised in Washington, DC, Ralph served his community as a police officer and went on to own several successful businesses including the first Gas and Go in the country in Waldorf, Maryland in 1979. Ralph soon relocated his family to Boca Raton, FL where he continued to operate businesses such as Shoprite Liquors in Deerfield Beach and recently opened Bella Hair Designs with his wife and sister in law, Sandy Moore. His business sense, vision and work ethic are well known and have provided well for his family.

His generous nature, vibrant smile and unforgettable laugh will be forever missed by all who knew him.

I am Ralph's cousin, sister of John Puglise. I am quite a bit older than John & Ralph, but do remember him as a little boy when we went to visit Uncle Claude & Aunt Rose. I am sorry for your loss. You & your family have my sincere sympathies. I know he will be greatly missed.

Thank you all for the uplifting messages in Ralph's Guest Book. He would have been honored that so many friends from the past remember and care for him. The family and I are staying close to one another as we try to find a "new normal" with Pop gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. The wealth of priceless memories we shared together sustain us now. Your kindness touched us all and is making a difficult time a little easier to bear.

Sincerely
