Ronald Tulio Succheralli

May 4, 1956 ~ November 29, 2021 (age 65)


Ronald Tulio Succheralli, 65, Shelocta, died Monday, November 29, 2021, at his residence.

The son of James and Marie (Garonzi) Succheralli, he was born May 4, 1956, in Indiana, PA.

Ron was a graduate of Homer City High School, class of 1975.

After graduation, Ron spent a number of years working in the coal mines, then became self-employed as a building contractor. He went on to become a Facilities Project Manager at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, retiring in 2014.

Ron was a man of many talents. If he wasn’t cooking up one of his favorite family recipes in the kitchen, he was busy problem solving, tinkering on something, or planning his next remodeling project. Most of all, Ron enjoyed being with his friends & family, especially his grandchildren who called him “Papa Ron”.

On any given day, you could find Ron on his daily coffee run, then taking a drive “around the hill” to see what was happening at Larry’s or what was cooking at Bernie’s. Dirt track racing was also a passion of his, especially sprint cars. Some of his best memories were spent in the garage working on #29 with good friends.

Over the past few years, he faced many health issues, but met each one with grit and a strong determination to overcome them. He was truly a warrior of strength.

Surviving is his wife of 43 years, Ruth (Weston) Succheralli; daughters, Melissa (Greg) Hirt, Delaware, Ohio and Kristin (Josh) Williams, Indiana, PA., grandchildren, Hailey and Grady Hirt, Delaware, Ohio; a sister, Linda (Tom) Roser, Homer City; brothers James (Cherie) Succheralli, Indiana, PA and Mark Succheralli, Cleveland, Ohio. He was also known as “favorite Uncle Ron” to many nieces and nephews.

Preceding Ron in death were his parents and his beloved cat, Murphy.

A private memorial service will be held with close family at the John A. Lefdahl Funeral Home.
