Ron was known for his love of gourmet food and libation, and the occasional visit to the casino. He will be forever remembered for his loving and caring nature, his generous spirit and wicked sense of humor. Ron was predeceased by his parents Mike and Pat Tobo. He is survived by his sister Joyce Tobo; nephews Brenon Holmes (Shannon) and Tyler Holmes (Megan); sister Shelley Tobo Gaudreau (Paul Gaudreau); niece Paige Bontus (Troy); nephew Brett Gaudreau; as well as great nephews Ryan, Eric, Dash; and great niece Sage.
