FRONZAGLlO, RONALD N. of Mt. Lebanon, died at home January 23,2017 at the age of 67. He left behind his wife of thirty-six years, the "love of his life," Karen (Peppy) and his pet cats, Angelina and Leo, our kind and helping friend Justin Evans, and many loving friends and neighbors. He was the second son of Alfred (deceased) and Antoinette Fronzaglio, the brother of Raymond (deceased) and Daniel and a sister, Denise. He has a son, Ronald, to a previous marriage. Ron earned a B.A. degree from California University of Pennsylvania and an M.A. from Duquesne University. He was the Director of Adult Basic Education for the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, the Director of Workforce Development Training and Grant Services at California University and the owner of APR Associates, a workforce development and customized job training company. Ron was a talented singer--a member of the Mendelssohn Choir and the Pittsburgh Opera Chorus. Most recently, he organized the ensemble, Martini Jazz. Ron was a remarkable and talented man, with a great sense of humor and a strong desire to live and enjoy life. He was an engaged person with ideas and opinions; he was fun-loving and always looking outward to the world. He never stopped trying. He will be greatly missed by all-colleagues, friends, neighbors, and by his wife, Karen, who will love him into the next world. To Ron! God bless you and keep you, God make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto to you, God lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. May you rest in eternal peace.
