Ronald A. Reagan, 49, of Torrington, CT, passed away Saturday, October 9th, surrounded by his loved ones.
Ronald was born in Newport, VT on April 3, 1972, a son of Carmella Pantaleo Reagan and the late William Reagan. He lived his dream being an over the road truck driver.
He is survived by his fiance, Jessica Gladu, and sons Ronald Reagan Jr (RJ) with Angelica Jordan, and Robert Reagan(Rubix) with Brianna Tapia, daughters Courtney(Smurf) Reagan and Christine Donovan and step children Aidan and Liam Rossi and Isabella Florian. He also leaves a grandson Brayden Tapia-Reagan and a brothers Aldeo LeClerc and William Reagan and wife Cathy, sister Trisha Reagan with Nick Sweeting,
Ronnie loved life and his family through thick and thin. He was a proud father and his children meant the world to him. He took on the role of papa and step dad with pride. He was always excited to spend the weekend with Aldeo heading to Vermont to go panning and taking scenic pictures of their adventures. He was eager to teach all his kids the proper use of tools and was proud of his collection, and was always willing to help a friend fix a car. His family will miss his stories he told by the fire pit, his laughter that lit up a room, and his smile that lit up his face. There is now a void that will never be filled. Fly High Snickerdoodle!
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday Oct 16 at Noon at Saint Francis Church. Friends may call prior to the service from 10:30-11:30 at Phalen Funeral Home.www.phalenfuneral.com
