Ronald Mario DeGasperis, 70, passed away on September 12, 2021.

Ron was born December 22, 1950, in Wheeling, West Virginia and was the third out of seven children. He lived his entire life in Wheeling. He was a graduate of Wheeling Central Catholic High School, then he attended a trade school and became a machinist. He worked for Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel for 42 years and loved every day of it.

Ron was preceded in death by his father, Loreto; mother, Delfina; brothers, Larry and Robert.

Ron leaves behind his wife Sandra Marlene, Wheeling, daughter Samantha DeGasperis Blackburn, Hilliard, OH, sons Ronald “Rocky”  DeGasperis II and Vincenzo DeGasperis, Wheeling.  He leaves behind 6 grandchildren: Kaylie Orth, Spencer Wood, Ava Blackburn, Sophia DeGasperis, Vincenzo DeGasperis and Luciano DeGasperis. He also leaves behind one great-granddaughter Leila. And his little doggie Maggie.

He was a member Sacred Heart Church and then St Alphonsus. He enjoyed the great outdoors and hunting. He loved going to antique cars shows and working on cars. And was always up for a good cup of coffee. But what he loved most was spending time with his family and sharing all of his knowledge with whomever would listen.  He loved making a play on words and cracking jokes. Which his family called “Ronisms”.

Family and friends are invited from 2 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15th at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 1400 Eoff Street, Wheeling with the service at 7:00 p.m. with Rev. Joseph Wiley officiating.
