OBITUARY:

Ronald A. Passerini passed away at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Sunday morning , March 18th. The beloved husband of Jane (Coulter) Passerini he was sixty six years of age.

Born in Cambridge he was the son of the late Peter and Alba (Camelio) Passerini. Raised in Somerville he was a graduate of Somerville High School, Class of 1966. While in high school he was introduced to a young lady, Jane Coulter. They dated for several years and in 1968 they married and began their life together.

Mr. Passerini had secured a position at Wonder Bread, where he remained until the late eighties, when he became involved in computers. He began working for a computer repair shop, which soon was to become his own company. He maintained his repair shop until ill health.

He and his wife lived in Somerville briefly and then moved to Billerica, where they remained for over the next twenty five years. Mr Passerini was devoted to his three children. He was always actively involved in all their activities. During the summer months they would be at Hampton Beach where there was much fun in the sun with lots of family and friends. Teaching his children how to fish both salt and fresh water, taking deep sea fishing trips were always family ventures. He was a remarkable pool player and had achieved tournament status and many first place finishes. After having watched a PBS “learn how to paint” show, he took up the oil palatte, and began painting landscapes. It was very hard to believe that he never had taken a lesson, his paintings were extraordinary.

Boston sports were a family favorite. They would all watch basketball, football and baseball games together while always enjoying some favorite chinese food.

Mr. Passerini was a very kind, loyal, and loving man. He loved his family, being and doing with them, gave him the great joys of his life.

Ronald is lovingly survived by his wife, Jane (Coulter) Passerini, his children, Ronald “Ron” Passerini and his husband David of Somerville, Dawn M. Passerini of Somerville and Paul W. Passerini of Lowell, his brothers, Peter “Kippy” Passerini and his wife Kathleen of Woburn and Patrick Passerini and his wife Joyce of Wakefield, and his grandchildren Eric, his sister Sarah and Andrew and his brothers Timmy and Kellen.

    You will be missed dearly. Thinking of your laugh around our dinner table at Christmas makes me smile. I will hold on to that memory forever. Tell Nana and Papa I said I love them and try not to let Nana force you to eat too much. I love you and miss you.
