On Thursday February 11, 2021, the Ruberti Family lost their "Superman" Ronald(Ron) Ruberti, 75, after losing a short but difficult battle with the terrible Coronavirus.
Ronald is survived by his beloved wife Susan Gentile of 45 years, his daughters Alexandra(Richard), Mary(Brad) and Christina(Rui), his son Ronald(RJ) Ruberti Jr.(Wilson), 7 grandchildren, brothers-in-law and sisters in-law, many nieces and nephews and extended family. His biggest joys in life were spending time with his family and friends and endlessly making them laugh.
Born in NYC in 1945, Ronald was the only child of Alexander and Frances(Ragno) Ruberti. Having lost his father when he was only 4 years old, Ron learned from an early age to work hard and was able to provide for his mother, wife and children. He instilled his excellent work ethic in all his children. Ron was a graduate of Mount St. Michael in the Bronx and Nyack College(Rockland County, NY). A Director of Risk Management, CPCU, ARM, Ron worked over 35 years in the field; at the Lowes Corporation in NYC, then relocating to Greensboro, NC in 1997 to head Risk Management for their branched-out Lorillard Tobacco Co. Over those years he made many long lasting and cherished friendships.
Retiring in 2014, Ron made the most it. He explored Italy, traveled with his wife and cousins, visited family and friends and took many special trips with his children and grandchildren. Ronald loved relaxing in Aruba each year, keeping in touch with loved ones, telling many jokes and finding the humor in everything. He found great enjoyment as an active member of the Italian American Social club. He was a true friend to everyone.
He will be so greatly missed but will live on through his wife, children and grandchildren who all carry a special part of him. His family will be celebrating his life in a private ceremony due to current restrictions. A special thank you to all the healthcare workers, nurses and doctors who risk their lives each day in this unfortunate pandemic that took our father from us way too soon.
