Ralph F. DiFucci Obituary

"Live, Laugh, Love"

Ralph F. DiFucci, age 57, of Lake City, died suddenly on Saturday, May 10, 2014, while working at his business in Lake City.

He was born October 26, 1956 in Erie, a son of Anne Walker DiFucci of Lake City and the late Ralph R. DiFucci.

Ralph graduated from Central Tech High School in 1975. Following high school, he began working for Copes-Vulcan in Lake City as a Machinist. He was employed there for ten years when he began working for his family's business, North Girard Concrete Works, which he eventually became the owner of. While operating his own company he also began working for the Girard School District, initially as a Bus Driver and most recently employed in the Maintenance Department.

He was a member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Girard, as well as a member of the Sons of the American Legion, Girard.

Ralph was well known throughout the area for his abilities to repair cars, and everything else imaginable. He was the "Fix it man" for his entire family as well as everyone else that knew him.

He was preceded in death by his father, Ralph R. DiFucci in 1990.

Ralph will be greatly missed by his family, which includes his loving wife, Linda L. Richardson DiFucci, whom he married June 28, 1980 in Girard, also by his mother, Anne Walker DiFucci of Lake City; two daughters, Emily E. DiFucci of Lake City, Ashley A.

DiFucci (Jackie) of Wilmington, N.C., and Jeffrey M. DiFucci (Lori) of Lake City; his mother and father in law, Boyd and Audrey Richardson of Lake City; his sister in law, Sharon K. Desantis of Lake City and many nieces and nephews. Ralph was greatly looking forward to being a grandfather for the first time, as his first is expected this coming October.
