BERLIN – Ronald K. Sanguinetti, 94, of Ledge Road, Moretown passed away quietly on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, at CVMC.
Born on May 5, 1929, in Barre, he was the son of Joseph and Ruth (Kelton) Sanguinetti. He attended schools in Barre, graduating from Spaulding in 1947. He was drafted into the US Army and stationed in Germany during his enlistment.
He married Ella Lou Ayer of Montpelier on May 9, 1953. They lived in Montpelier for several years before moving to Moretown in 1972. They recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary.
Ron’s long working life included many different occupations. He owned and operated a service station, grocery store, shoe/shoe repair store, sold real estate, managed a manufacturing plant, drove granite truck, did bookkeeping, and read electric meters. He also cut and sold firewood until his late 80’s. Like many Vermonters, he worked a lot.
He was a 70+ year member and past master of Granite Lodge #35 of the Masonic Temple and worked on the charity bingo there for many years.
Ron loved to hunt and fish and to share that joy with others. He would be in his deer stand, high in a tree, before first light and not come down until dark. Favorite memories include a cross country trip to Alaska where he caught salmon and a Newfoundland hunting trip for caribou and moose. He believed that the best dog to have is a beagle. He missed his last beagle, Susan, for many years after her passing.
Survivors include his wife, Ella Lou, sons Bruce (Pam), and David (Debbie), grandchildren Madison, Justin (Lea), Rachael Hayes (Shoghi), Joseph, and a great-grandchild, Charlie.
He was predeceased by his parents, his sisters Patricia Sanguinetti and Marcia Mitchell (William), and an infant son, Michael.
There will be a Celebration of Life to be held at a future date.
Ron’s family is grateful for the care he received at CVMC for many years – Dad appreciated all your work to keep him healthy. Because of you, we were able to enjoy many additional years with him.
We would also like to thank Susan Lyons and Julie Ladue and Bobby Ryan for the care you’ve given Dad and Mom – you are family.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Masonic Scholarship Fund, c/o Granite Lodge #35, 2 Academy St, Barre, VT 05641.
