Ron S. Nicolosi

from Santa Clarita, California, United States

Ron S. Nicolosi was born May 16th, 1958 in Methuen, Massachusetts and passed away peacefully in his California home on July 28th, 2020. He was surrounded by loved ones and succumbed to health complications at just 62 years old. Ron is survived by his mother, Shirley Nicolosi, his brother Peter Nicolosi and wife Lois, and his nieces and nephews, Karen, Carl, Kathryn, Sally, Jodi, and Peter. His extended family includes many lifelong friends from childhood, the Theater/Television and friendly neighbors.

He is also survived by more cooking contraptions and baseball caps than we currently know what to do with... 

Ron was the kind of person that lit up the room with his big smile and contagious laugh. After spending many years lighting up stages across Massachusetts, he continued to follow his “ultimate dream” to Hollywood, where he worked on various household sitcoms like Just Shoot Me!, Stacked, How I Met Your Mother and most recently, Carol’s Second Act. Ron was always cheerful on set and everyone loved to be around him.

After graduating from UMASS Amherst in 1980, Ron went on to teach Physical Education and then would become a dispatcher at Raytheon Missile Systems. All the while, Ron loved to entertain - and as a local paper would once write, he was a man of a thousand faces. “Throw a comedy his way and he takes on a role of a bumbling harlequin destined to make you laugh…give him a tragedy and he’ll reduce you to tears.” Off stage, Ron was proficient in tennis, swimming, rollerskating, playing the piano and posting Facebook pickle recipes or keeping everyone updated on the latest car chase. 

Every wall in his home is garnished with cherished memories of colorful stage shots and celebrity group selfies. He lived a life sharing his numerous talents and magnetic personality. 

“Someone once told me that acting is a dirty word … that it should never be used. On the contrary I’ve played a lot of characters over the years and the best one was ME. I just want to be my natural self and put that on stage. - Ron”

    I never met Ron, we became friends on Facebook. I did cooking demonstrations on the Shopping Channels and Ron would help promote my shows, he would post recipes using my products. he even did a video dancing with his mother with my cleaning slippers on. I am so heartbroken for Ron's family and close friends for their loss. I know how much my heart hurt when I heard of his passing and I never met him. He was such a light! I am so grateful our paths crossed. I know for a fact Ron is in heaven! Hopefully I will meet him there someday.

    Ron wasn't the life of the party. He was the soul of the party. Today, there is a big hole in the world. We are missing you big time, Mr. Nick.

    Ron was one of my better friends in high school. I saw him at our 5th year reunion and it was if no time had gone by. I re-I I re-connected with him on Facebook and he has kept me laughing and loving him ever since. I will miss Ron. He was a bright light of love and laughter in a world that sorely needs that. His smile was was dazzling and his laugh infectious. God Bless you Ron, you will always be fondly remembered. Much love to your family. Judy Hanson Soteros

    Although I hadn't seen Ron in many decades since parting ways after our school days together, I followed his exploits on Facebook and enjoyed knowing the world was a more wonderful place because his gentle yet vibrant spirit was here making it so. His spirit lives on here in all who loved him and is expanding to rest among loved ones gone before. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again.

    Miss Me But Let Me Go When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom-filled room, why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little but not too long and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared miss me but let me go. For this is a journey that we all must take and each must go alone It’s all a part of the Master’s plan a step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart, Go to the friends we know, And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds, Miss me, but let me go. You were the kindest person I've ever known. I love you and will miss you with all my heart, Uncle Ron.
