Ronald Ferraro

Ronald Ferraro, 81 years old, of Philadelphia, PA passed away peacefully on May 20, 2022. Ronald was born on October 7, 1940 in Brooklyn, NY. He was the son of the late Vera and Albert Ferraro.

Ronald had many nicknames including Bill, Pappy, Brooklyn and Bonjo. Bill was an avid sports fan, especially of the Eagles, Sixers, Phillies and Brooklyn Dodgers. He loved jazz music, singing along with Frank Sinatra, traveling, mostly on cruise ships and telling jokes or a good story. He was one of a kind. God broke the mold when He made him.
