I am so blessed to have known the Lobo family. Ron, Marilyn, and the boys were in my life briefly when the boys were younger and I remain touched by their kind and gentle spirits. My heart is heavy for you and the boys, Marilyn. I will keep you in my prayers as you are in my heart.

Ronnie you have left us with a lot of memories.Where do I begin, I guess from the early days at St. Lawrence’s Boys School where we became friends also we met after school as I was on Pedro D’ Souza Road . He was a man full of passion in whatever he did. From being a top athlete at school he became “Top Chef” in Chicago.
Ronnie and Marilyn hosted me and my family twice at their home in Wilmette and we have very fond memories.
Marilyn and the boys please accept our heartfelt condolences.
Ronnie, you will be missed.RIP buddy

My first introduction to Ronny and his wonderful family was in 2006 through his beloved Sisters and Brothers-in-Law, Lucy/Eusebius and Jessy (Jacintha)/Felix when I was serving in St Joseph Church, Wilmette for a few years.

At the very outset, he came across as a very jovial and warm person. In my encounters subsequently, I discovered that he was a very kind, compassionate, sensitive and helpful human being. He loved his family and siblings dearly and was like a ‘Patriarch’ to them. No wonder he was so much loved and missed now terribly by them.

In his Earthly Journey, besides proving himself to be a wonderful Son, Brother, Husband, Father, Friend…..Human, Christian, Ronny also proved to be an ATHLETE and CHEF Par Excellence!

I pray that Ronny’s Earthly Journey that was lived in HOPE, FAITH and LOVE prove to be the right RECIPE to help him to endure the NEW HEAVENLY JOURNEY TO ABBA, OUR FATHER!

May he be able to say like St Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).

ETERNAL PEACE, Dear Amigos! May Jesus be the consolation and strength of Agnes, Marilyn, Julius/Giuseppina, Eric, Kevin/Ashley, Walter/Rosalyn, Patrick/Clare, Jacintha/Felix, Lucy/Eusebius, and the dear and near ones of our beloved Ronny!

Fondly Remembered and In Prayerful Solidarity,
Rev. Anthony Fernandes

Firstly, my deepest heart felt Condolence to Ronny's Family! May God rest his soul in Eternal Peace - Amen. May God give his Family the courage to bear the irreplaceable loss!

The sad demise of Ronny has come to me as a Shock!

Ronny and I started our grade school career from Grade 1 right up to Grade 10! I vividly remember even today after 54 years Ronny sprinting away to victory in 100 meters, 200 meters, 400 meters, and 800 meters yearly school sports event. I cannot recall that he ever came in second place in these races!

Yes, we played a lot games together with other school friends such as marbles, langree (one legged catching), wooden tops, hockey, and cricket with tennis ball.

Other than him being an ACE in all of the above races he was a gentle and an understanding person. As a head prefect, I do not recall that he was ever unfair to me when it came to being disciplined.

Last I saw Ronny was in 1972 on Elphinstone Street on the footpath by the London Watch Co. showroom. It was a pleasant surprise and a coincidence. I still remember his cheerful face.

Dear Ronny, may your good and sincere soul race away to the Heavens just the way you used to sprint to victory at all times on this materialistic world!

Ronny, will miss you with fond memories at all times when reminiscing our childhood days.....

My memories of my dear friend Ronnie go back to the late 50s. St Lawrence’s School was our Alma Mater. I can’t remember an athlete or a sportsman in our school who has recieved more cups or medals then Ronnie.
I had a very close relationship with him during n after leaving school. In the 9th n 10th class when Ronnie was nominated as Head Prefect I was appointed as his deputy that brought us even more close.
Though he was a few months older then me but he somehow showered me with a respect of an elder brother. From the time Ronnie migrated to the USA I do not remember him or Marilyn ever miss my birthday.
My visits to Chicago would always include the famous brunch at his house. In the same breath his visit to Pakistan would not be complete without assembling at my residence over dinner with old school mates.
Ronnie u will always be in our hearts and will be forever missed.
