Ronald Joseph Reale, 78, passed away at his home on October 17, 2017. He was a Tracy resident for 50 years. Ronald was born on November 12, 1938 in Oakland, CA, to Joseph and Mary Reale.
Ron was an extremely devoted husband, father and papa. He is survived by Cynthia, his much loved wife of 53 years, and their children, Michael Reale of Tracy, CA, Tonja Reale-Phipps of Tracy, CA, and Kristie Reale of Manteca, CA and his grandchildren Ashley Reale and Elijah Phipps.
He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and reading about WWII documentaries. Ron was veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard. He was retired from his maintenance engineer position with San Joaquin Delta College. During the latter part of his years, his faith was very important to him, spending time each Sunday at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church. Every Saturday during the Tracy Farmers Market, he would buy flowers, for his “bride” as he would say.
He will be dearly missed and forever live in our hearts.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Fry Memorial Chapel on Friday, October 27, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
