He was the cherished grandfather of Larissa, Ronnie, and Declan Crecco, Teddy Ricciardella (Rita), Roberto and Daniele Ricciardella, Manuela and Rosa Franzoni. He was also blessed to be the great grandfather of Mariella. Professionally, Ronnie was a well respected and gifted builder in the Bronx, Westchester and Putnam counties. His enjoyment was being on an excavator or backhoe breaking ground for one of his new homes. His love and enormous generosity for his family was the highlight of his life. Until the very end all he cared about was giving, loving and helping others. He was a true gem and will be immensely missed.
