  • To Ronald Jr and Brian,

    We were neighbors for more than 20 years on enfield.
    Your dad, myself and husband Ray spent many a night or day chatting in his stairs and laughing about this and that. He was a good guy. We enjoyed talking to him. He had a good sense of humor and I was teased by him and husband Ray which always prompted a good laugh. If we ever had questions about a tool to use for a specific project Ron had the answer! 
    Rest in peace Ronnie. 

  • My condolences to the Mello Family.  I served with Ron in the Sub-2 precinct in Smith Hill in the 1980’s as a young patrolman. I always admired Ron for his patience, commonsense and coolness in stressful situations and learned much from him.  Rest in Peace, Ron.
