Tribute & Message From The Family

Ronald J. Surrette, 71, of Merrimack died unexpectedly on December 20, 2019.
Born in Worcester MA on February 24, 1948, he was the son of the late Robert and Anita (Pizzuti). He was a graduate of North High School, Worcester, Ma and Worcester Jr. College. Ronald served in the U.S. Army as a MP and was honorably discharged. He worked in sales for several computer companies. In retirement he worked in sales for BJ's Wholesalers.
Ronald was a very outgoing, social and giving man. He had an amazing sense of humor and would do anything for anyone. He enjoyed golfing and fishing, but his true passion was his family. Family was his priority and always came first. Seeing his family happy was what brought him true happiness. Ronald was the "fun Grampy" on the beach, in the pool, and in his grandchildren's lives. He was the Grampy that rode big wheels, and on the sled. The Grampy that gave 100% all of the time. Above all, he will be remembered as the best, most loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather.
Surviving family members include his beloved wife of 49 years, Constance (Shilalie) Surrette; his daughter, Laurie S. Lamy and husband Ray, his son Jeff M. Surrette and wife Darlene of Pepperell, MA; and two granddaughters, Elizabeth and Sarah
. He was predeceased by both parents; and his sister Amy Greene. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the police dept., fire dept., and first responders of Merrimack for their care, kindness and empathy.
A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Friday, December 27, 2019 at St. Elizabeth Seton church, 190 Meetinghouse Road, Bedford. Burial followed in St. Joseph Cemetary, 448 Donald Street, Bedford. Memorial donations may be made to: Monarch School of New England, in honor of his granddaughter, Elizabeth Lamy, PO Box 1921, Rochester, NH 03866.


Condolence & Memory Journal

Ron and I worked together 20 years ago. Had some of my best, fun and most productive days working with Ron. The consummate professional Ron was hardworking, smart and quick with a smile and a joke. Too many great stories to write here but let me say, Ron was just a great guy and a person you were simply blessed to know and spend time with. Sad but smiling just thinking of him.

I worked with Ron 20 or so years ago now. I just remember enjoying his company as we travelled all around the east coast. Although work, it was always an adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed. I am so glad to have known Ron and for the fun he added to life!

Our sympathy and prayers are with you all.
