Our beloved Pasqualino “Patsy” Ruvolo passed away on July 27, 2018. He was born in Queens, New York, to Josephine and Giuseppe “Joseph” Ruvolo on January 22, 1930. He was one of four brothers.

He met Shirley Kilok at a dance and they were married October 6, 1951. They were married 66 years.

Patsy was a retired salesman, amateur animal rights activist, and Dean Martin enthusiast. He could serenade even the coldest of hearts. He was an exceptional golfer with shelves full of trophies. He was a devout Catholic and was a past Grand Knight with the Knights of Columbus. He laughed at his own jokes before reaching the punchline. He was passionate about bingo and his dogs.
