I worked for A & A for 16 years and dealt with Ron who was our consulting actuary for our pension plan. Ron was extremely professional - he was knowledgeable in his area of expertise- he answered all my questions - even if some showed a lack of understanding. He always presented management with options - this was the time that the FASB was issuing new pronouncements on pensions and post retirement benefits and their recognition. I got to know Ron quite well and was lucky to consider him a friend as well as a business colleague. My sympathies to his family.

Cheryl,

Oh how long it has been, but I can never forget you & Ron at Y&O and the good times we had working together! What a great 39 years you had with Ron and my thoughts & prayers are with you and your family.

The memory that comes to me whenever I think of cousin Ronnie stems from my mother Marilyn's love for him and his brothers. The stories she would tell about how they ran around together when young were incredibly entertaining, and the love that filled her eyes as she spoke of their joy was beautiful....only to be bettered by the laughter and hysteria conveyed when they had the opportunity to get together as adults and reminisce. It was so easy to visualize the four of them as children and it brought others such happiness to watch them remember their childhood mischief. I am sure he and mom will continue their fun in heaven. Rest in Peace Ron. Love Cousin Laura

One of my fondest memories of Ron was a trip to Great Adventure with Cheryl, Jennifer, Lindsay, Danielle, Jimmy, Paul and myself.
He showed his skill by winning 3 Bears in a row. He was determined to win that 4th bear no matter what the cost, not wanting to disappoint any of his nieces or nephew.
As Ron was bringing the bears to the car, a woman approached and asked "Where'd you get those bears!!!?"
He was a great brother in law and uncle to our children.
With Love
Marcy DeStefano

We three brothers grew up together sharing the same bedroom. We all had our own unique personalities.
Lying in bed reading before lights out
Ron would be working calculus equations.
Brother Dr. Dennis reading biology and science periodicals.
Yours truly had the stash of comic books.
A better brother, husband and father you couldn't wish for.

He's in gods hands and will be missed by all

Brother Paul DeStefano

To know Ron was to love him! He was such a kind, caring, happy and thoughtful man. It was very apparent how much he loved his family and the joy he had in everything he did. We were so blessed to have the family as neighbors and friends. We have so many fun memories of laughter and happy times together which I will always cherish. My heart and prayer go out to Cheryl, Adam and Bryan. Ron will always be remembered as an extraordinary man and he will be greatly missed.
