Ron was born in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up in nearby Dorchester. At a young age, Ron's grandfather took him under his wing and taught him the ropes in the printing business. While working at a large Boston printing corporation and being an amiable and outgoing sort, he soon advanced to become a branch manager in Manchester, NH. Promoted from there, he oversaw the company's expansion of two branches into Florida. The branches were consolidated, and eventually he became the owner/operator of the remaining Tampa branch, Semco Printing Company for over 30+ years.
Ron had a great sense of humor and enjoyed making people laugh. He never met a stranger, only friends he hadn't met yet. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
