CHESHIRE – Ronald F. DePalma, 80, passed peacefully on Dec. 2, 2022, at the hospice unit of Apple Rehab in Plainville.

Ronald was born on July 21, 1942; he was the son of Vincenza (Santoro) and Charles DePalma. Ron enjoyed his family, home and classic car shows. He worked for the public works department in Cheshire.
