Ronald F. (“Ronnie”) Marcella, of Hull, died Feb. 4.
He was a proud U.S. Marine veteran who served during Vietnam. He earned a Silver Star, a Bronze Star with Valor, and a Purple Heart.
Ronnie loved his family. With his quick wit and his limitless sarcasm, he left an impression on anyone whom he crossed paths with. He enjoyed fishing, scratch tickets, and he was the greatest storyteller you will ever encounter.
He spent many years volunteering at the Brockton VA hospital, and he was a member of the Mass Vigil Society. Ronnie was a man who gave his everything to the people he cared about and never expected anything in return. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Beloved husband of the late Sarah A. Marcella, he was the loving father of Christian Marcella, of Hull; Genevieve Rosario, of North Carolina; Jessica Davis, of Quincy; and Mariah Marcella, of Hull. He was the cherished twin brother of Paul Marcella, of Kingston, and brother of the late Richard, Robert, and Phillip Marcella.
He was the devoted grandfather of Isabella Rosario, of North Carolina, and Joseph Marcella, of Hull. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, sisters- in-law, and cousins.
The funeral Mass and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Ronnie can be made to the V.A. Boston Healthcare System, Brockton VAMC Campus, ATTN: Voluntary Services (135), 940 Belmont St., Brockton, MA 02301. Please see www.Keohane.com for online condolences.
