Tribute Wall


  1. I want to take a few moments to remember my vibrant, bright light of an uncle: Ron Posteraro. I’ve been beyond blessed to have such a figure in my life, who has always been so supportive in my path from childhood to today in what drives my passions as I move about the world. Uncle Ron has been here for me since my birth, having been one of the most dear friends to my father, Mark Rosner, who treated him as a brother. I remember Uncle Ron throughout my childhood – his hearty laugh, his inquisitiveness, his jokes with my father. They were well-found friends and through this relationship was I blessed with a thoughtful and caring uncle. Uncle Ron was there for my graduation from high school, and he and Namthip have been a wonderful presence to my father who is also ill. I know how greatly appreciative my father has been to continue to have Ron and Namthip in his life, in which they shared with him much love. I personally have many lovely memories together with Uncle Ron, Auntie Namthip and Aaron – times of laughter and joy around the table. Thank you so much for loving me, Uncle Ron. I am heartbroken by this loss, but I will forever cherish his memory and hold it high with the light of a candle. Baruch dayan ha’emet. Sending much love and support to Namthip, Aaron & the Posteraro family.

  2. Our deepest sympathy and sorrow for the loss of a true friend with a heart of gold who always made us smile. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with you all.

  5. Dear Posteraro Family,
    May the good memories see you through the difficult times ahead.
    I met Ron in the 1980s when I moved to St. Marys and we became good friends. Some fun memories includes the road trips in his Impala, his love of technology and of course AC/DC and Judas Priest. Ron was one of the Ushers in my wedding in 1992.
    I had noticed that a previous memory on the Tribute Wall mentioned “Lek” which also happens to be the nickname he came up with for me.
    Thank you Ron for being a great friend.

  6. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Aaron during this difficult period.
    RIP Ron!

  7. My heartfelt condolences to the Posteraro family. Ron and I were childhood buddies and had a lot of good times together growing up in the old neighborhood and playing sports. RIP Ron.

  8. My deeply condolences to Namtip and families, may him Rest In Peace.

  9. Our condolences for your loss!
    Ron was a great friend, father and husband 🌹🌹

  10. Bethy and I are truly saddened by this news. May God bless you all.
