He is survived by his beloved wife Barbara, 3 step children: David Norcross, Greg Norcross, and Kimberly Lyons; two sisters-in-law, 13 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. An accomplished musician, Ruggi held a Master's Degree in Violin Performance from San Francisco State College and traveled the country with Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Orchestra. A native of San Francisco, he played with many orchestras and spent the last 35 years before he retired with the world-class San Francisco Ballet Orchestra.
