This is from Ron's wife, Deby, - my beloved "got his wings" and is now free from all pain. Thank you for all of your prayers, love and support. Rejoice, and be glad, for even at the grave we make our song, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. (For those of you who don't know, Deby Adinolfi is an ordained priest in the Episcopal church serving in Arizona. Ron passed away at 9:23 PM on Feb 14, 2016.)
In Memory of
Ronald Albert Adinolfi
November 7, 1943 - February 14, 2016
Ron took his final walk on Valentine's Day, at rest now from the pain and ravages of the cancer he had lived with for nine years. Ron lived his life to the fullest and is remembered and loved by his former Saint Catherine's Indian School students, his friends and his family. He was a man with a deeply rooted faith in God, who was filled with wisdom and knowledge and a love of life. He loved to cook and he enjoyed traveling, good books, music and dance, as well as hiking and canoeing in his beloved northern New Mexico. All who knew him will sorely miss his wit and wisdom, knowledge and insight. His wife, the Rev. Debora Adinolfi, survives Ron.

Am so sorry to hear about the passing of Ron. After many years we finally we able to get intouch with one another. At that time he had told me of his illness. Normally he would response to my emails but had not in a while. Now I realize that he must have been quite ill during that time. I shall have fond memories of him during our time at Central. May he rest in piece.

I am so sorry to have learned about the passing of Ron. Yes, he was a great kid, even though we were
not close friends, when he would see each other in class or the hallways, he was always very friendly.
My deepest condolences to his family.

Deby & Family, my deepest sympathy to each of you. Ron & I graduated from Winthrop and Central together and were part of the upper north-end neighborhood. Ron was always funny, interesting, a unique individual, even in grammer school, and an all round nice guy. My prayers are with you at this time.

Dear Deby, greetings from another Episcopal priest! I was saddened to hear of Ron's death, but with you believe that death is only a horizon, and a horizon is nothing saved the limitation of our sight, and one day our eyes will see our loved ones again who are in the presence of our Lord in the communion of all the saints.
I remember some really good days in highschool with Ron's sense of humor and his positive out-going personality. Hearing of his passing brought back some really good memories. May his soul rest in peace.

Ron was in my homeroom with Mr. Connelly. Even though it's been a very long time, I remember him well - as a very friendly, down to earth, and enjoyable guy. While at first he seemed to be a very serious type of fellow, it turned out he had a great sense of humor and was always upbeat. Just a nice friend to have during those times. It sure sounds like he was a very respected and loved man - not surprising.
My sympathies are with the family.

My condolences to Ron's family. He and I used to double date in high school, and spent a fair amount of time together, lost touch over the years, but the memories are stil vivid. May he rest in peace.

Although I didn't know him well on a personal level, it was obvious to me in my contacts with him, that Ron seemed to have a deeper understanding of life and a different outlook than many of our other peers in the class. It wasn't overly obvious at the time, but you kind of knew that he had a sensitivity and respect for others that was almost spiritual in nature. Well as it turns out, these early qualities served him well in his service to others in need. He hit the high point in serving his religion and humanity, something which all of us respect and honor him for. I agree with the Reverend Donald Parker's comments- who incidentally married me and my wife in 1976.
