Rosalie dear friend my heart goes out to you. I’ll always remember when we were in high school and you an Ronnie would take us to canteen in Warren. The kindness you both shared. Watching the super bowl with you and Ronnie and teasing him when the Eagles beat the Patriots! Getting to see how proud Ronnie was of his great grandson racing at Connecticut. He had a good life with you. I always admired you both since high school as a perfect couple. He will be missed. Love Moe and John Mendes

Losing a dad who was amazing as yours, is not easy. Even when our minds are saying they are out of pain, at peace and in the company of those who went before and their Lord forever. Hearts aren’t as easy to accept the hole they have left behind. Let that hole mourn and take things hour by hour if you have to. The formalities will pass like a fog, In time your heart will begin accepting those fond memories that you and others recall. Smiles laughs and tears are all allowed and in some ways needed to heal the heart enough to learn how to live without him.

You had an awesome dad who was a fighter thru and thru. Or should that be a driver, racing through every obstacle that this world threw at him. The day he was here in Syracuse for a race at the fair grounds, I was honored to be able to see his passion for racing and joy in helping the next generations to grow the same love of the sport. Tears roll down my cheek just thinking of that never ending smile. God bless you all and prayers for strength thru this time will be sent your way.

Ron was such a fantastic gentleman, our family came to know him about 2 years following his having received my late husband's liver. Ron called me on Christmas day and a very welcome friendship started at that time. Having been in Rhode Island to visit with the Louro family, Ron and Rosalie have also been to Kentucky to visit with me and my family. I'll never forget when my 3 daughters and I got to meet Ron for the first time and he took our hands and placed them on his side where the liver was placed. What a gift he gave us with that small gesture. My girls and I will always consider Ron and Rosalie family. I'm sure Ron and Dale are celebrating their stories in heaven now as they get to know each other on a level we will never be able to understand. Thanks so much Ron for keeping that liver going for the past 25 years. We will miss your sweet smile, gentle says and all that you stood for. Rest in Peace my friend.

We have shared many great times over the years with you & Ron & the family.
Our last time with Ron was Christmas 2019 before covid hit our world.

We have many fond memories of our vacations together & times at the racetrack
and family gatherings.

We will cherish the memories of him until we all meet again one day.

If only we could step back in time and do it all over again...

All our love,
Carol & Wayne

Rosalie and family, we are lost for words. Remember the good times when Ronnie & Sonny used to (sometimes) walk and sometimes hitch hike ( to see us) from Warren to Barrington. Those are good memories that we will never forget. "RIP," Ron. You are in a better place.
Love you, Rosalie.
