An Ithaca native and graduate of Cornell University, Ron went on to own and operate Perfect Painters/Heritage Builders Inc., Heritage Park TownHouses, Inc. and Lansing Center Associates, Inc.  He was a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Certified Graduate Builder, Graduate Master Builder and Certified Green Professional.  He was a member of the Tompkins/Cortland Builders and Remodelers Association (TCBRA), the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and Historic Ithaca.  He served proudly on the Alumni Board for Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity and was a sponsor of the Ithaca Softball League.  He was a communicant of All Saints Catholic Church.

Ron was preceded in death by his father, Ronald Ronsvalle.

In his leisure time he enjoyed fishing, boating, camping, traveling, gardening, cruising on his motorcycle and restoring antique cars and boats.  Above all, he loved spending time with his family.

So sorry for your loss Maureen. Ron was always so happy talking about you and the boys. He was such a kind hearted guy. High school and Cornell days were always better when I ran into Ron at the frat or on the walk around campus. Sending you heartfelt prayers and hugs to you all.

My condolences to Ronnys family. I knew Ronny since 2nd grade as we both lived off Coddington Rd. I had the biggest crush and would ride my bike past his house just to see if he was outside. He was a kind soul and will be truly missed. RIP friend
