Ronald Richard Auriana, Sr. passed away peacefully at home on September 5, 2020 surrounded by his loving family.

Ron was born in New York City to Louis and Emma Auriana. He attended Immaculate Conception Elementary School and Cardinal Hayes High School. He is also a graduate of Fordham University.

Ron married JoAnn McIntyre in 1964 and shortly thereafter moved to Bethel, CT where they celebrated their lives together and raised their family.

A successful financial planner, Ron also served as President of St. Mary’s Home School Association and was a long-time volunteer at St. Mary’s Church.

Ron’s greatest joy in life was his family. A beloved husband and father, he was a devoted “Poppy” to his grandchildren. His big laugh and hearty smile were an inspiration to all who knew him. As a young boy in the Bronx, Ron and his childhood friends literally hung out at Yankee Stadium & his love for his “Yankees” continued throughout his life.

A Graveside Service will be conducted at 11am on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at St. Mary Cemetery, Bethel, CT.

Ron was one of a kind, and unique in many ways. He was not shy in saying what he thought, had a great sense of humor, and was sensitive, sympathetic, empathetic, and charitable. He was dedicated to his family and friends, could be tough at times, but only to encourage people to do the rIght thing. He was young at heart, enjoyed Oldies but Goodies music, and was known for his memorable moves on the the dance floor which could only be matched by “Dancing with the Stars”. Ron was appreciative of the opportunities given to him by our country and worked hard and enjoyed a successful business career. However if you engaged in a political discussion with him, you would not forget it. He was “ Madly in Love with JoAnn” which I believe was a match made in Heaven. Ron made a “Positive difference” during his time in our world and he set an example for his family, friends and others who had the privilege of meeting him. I Will Miss Him Dearly. Morris Gross
