Ronald DeFrancisco

Ronald Michael DeFrancisco (Ron) age 60 passed away October 21st 2019, surrounded by love. Ron was preceded in death by his parents Raymond DeFrancisco and Elizabeth Hallman. He honorably served in the United States Navy from February 28th 1977 to February 27th 1983.

Loving father to Anthony (Jennifer) DeFrancisco, Michael (Loretta) DeFrancisco, Nicolas (Amanda) DeFrancisco, Dominic (Bridget) DeFrancisco.

Loving brother to Ruth DeFrancisco and Rita Lewis.  Proud Uncle to numerous nieces, nephew and cousins.

In his youth Ronald loved the outdoors and spent several years participating in Boy Scouts. Ron loved being a father, saying once " there is nothing like it, it's a feeling all of it's own."  He enjoyed  spending time with his boys, playing sports, bowling leagues, and other activities. As they got older he loved playing darts, pool, and just spending time with them, joking and laughing. Ron loved being a grandfather as much as he loved being a dad, spending as much time with his grandkids as he could.

Ron was known for his love for life, his big heart, and his wonderful sense of humor. He always had a smile and a joke for everyone he met.

His loss is felt deeply and he will be missed by many. A memorial service will be held November 2nd from 12pm to 4pm at Pomierski & Son Funeral Home 1059 W 32nd St, Chicago, Il 60608. A prayer service and military honors will be 3:30 pm. INT Private.
