Ron was born in Rochester NY, October 21, 1944. He was an only child to Nicholas & Evelyn Falzolare.

When Ron came into Nicholas & Evelyn's life they were "older", so he was a surprise. After many years of accepting that they would be childless, it was only natural that they were very proud and protective of Ron.

Ron's education included: St. Anthony's Grade School & Jefferson HS. He finished up attending RIT for a year. He began a lifelong career with Eastman Kodak company in the camera division. His total time at Kodak spanned 32 years. He worked in various departments with different responsibilities, at the time of his retirement he was a Senior Stock Keeper.

Growing up like most boys, he loved his car and the freedom it gave him. Driving with him was like "drag racing" on Main Street. Again, like most boys, he had an eye for pretty girls, too. That was up until he met the love of his life, Kathy Kramb.

They were married on January 11, 1969. Ironically it was an ex-girlfriend of Ron's that introduced the two. After that, there was no turning back. During Kathy & Ron's 52 years together, they had two children, Renee & Richard. He idolized his granddaughter Liana. He loved and cherished his family very much!

His family and his pets whom he treated like family were the most important things in Ron's life. Ron enjoyed traveling, especially family trips to Lake George, Virginia, Myrtle Beach and Florida.

Ron enjoyed watching TV, not "mushy TV' he enjoyed, Gun Smoke, Andy Griffith, Shark Tank & King of Queens. His personality could best be described as, loving, selfless, caring, and very strong willed.

Through the years Ron's sight became more and more degenerative. Even though this gave him limitations, he remained strong, and he accepted whatever limitations came his way and made the best of his situation.

He will be missed by his family and friends!
