Ronald Farina, 90, of Muhlenberg Township, passed away peacefully in his home the evening of Saturday, June 20, 2020. He was the loving husband of Patricia A. (Reck), with whom he shared over 67 years of marriage.

(Alice B.) of Memphis , TN; grandchildren Jason, Nicolas (Bretta) and Zachary and great-grandsons Ernest and Oscar and granddaughter Amanda(Evan), daughter of the late Thomas C. Farina; and also, a nephew, James Bolognese (Debbie), who was raised like a son, and his daughter Jodi (Holly).

In addition to his son, Thomas, Ron was predeceased by his sister Louise M. Bolognese.

So sorry to Ron’s family for your loss. I golfed in the VE golf tournaments against him. He was a great golfer and even a greater person. He will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to your family. Mr. Farina was a truly kind person. I want to thank Mike for the kind note to my mom when dad passed away.

My thoughts are with you Aunt Pat and family. I’ll always remember visits on New Year’s Day. I never did develop a taste for pinto beans, but I remember that uncle Ron loved them. Let me know if you need anything.
