Ronald G. Pucci

September 22, 1942 - May 29, 2019 Kennett Square, PA | Age 76 Loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Brother and Friend.

RONALD G. PUCCI, 76, of Kennett Square passed away on May 29, 2019, after a lengthy battle with COPD.   He was born Sept. 22, 1942 in Wellsville, Ohio, the son of Renaldo and Irene Gerace Pucci.

He attended St. Lawrence Elementary School, Upper Darby and St. Dorothy’s Elementary School, Drexel Hill, graduated from St. Joseph’s Prep, Philadelphia, and Villanova University School of Engineering with a degree in mechanical engineering. He began his career working in engineering sales, later was employed by the former ICI Americas, became an independent engineering consultant, and was also involved in environmental clean-up projects.

Ron liked many sports and had been an avid hunter before his illness. He enjoyed his many friends and was always available to lend a helping hand. He was truly amazing – with his broad knowledge, he could fix just about anything. We will miss his fun-loving nature and steadfast support.  Ron enjoyed memberships in the Sons of Italy, the Italian American Club, the Safari Club International, and the NRA (benefactor status) .

Survivors include his loving wife, Irene Lovisa; sister, Victoria Kressler (Carey); daughters, Renee Solomon (Charles) and Janine Jackson (Lee); 9 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Special thanks to his dearest friends Bob Holdsworth and Joe Ciampaglia who were always there to help him through the difficult times.

He was predeceased by his son, Ronald Pucci.

  1. So sorry we can’t be there today Irene. Ron was a sweetheart. We were so fortunate to have shared some good times with you. He certainly always had us laughing. A man of many talents. You Irene gave him the courage to live as long as he could. Anthony and I will keep you both in our prayers. I know we will all be together someday. Love Tony and Marie

  2. Ron was a dear friend to my daughter Brenda when they worked at ICI. He was instrumental in my getting a flea free puppy when she thought we needed a dog. That was one of the best gifts we ever got. Ron made a nicknack shelf for Brenda and I liked it so much that he made me a smaller version. Each day I am reminded of his kindness. We are all blessed for having him in our lives. So sorry he is gone. He will not be forgotten.
