RONALD ALBERT SARTORELLI At age 65, Ron passed away on April 19, 2013. Ron was born to the late Albert and Vera Sartorelli April 20, 1947, in Toronto. Ron attended Gordon Graydon High School (Mississauga) and went on to graduate from York University (1969) then from the Toronto Teachers' College. He followed the career he loved, making a difference in the lives of his students while teaching at Hillcrest Public School (Mississauga) for many years. After retirement, Ron was actively involved at the Peregrine Co-op in Toronto where he lived. The friends he made there were very special to him. A loving and caring son, brother, uncle and friend Ron loved Blue Jays games with family and friends, his trips to California to dog-sit for sister Joy, or to animal-sit for any one for that matter, wherever they lived! He shared fond memories of his camping trips to Bass Lake with friends Harry and Linda. Ron was an expert handyman, always available to his family and friends for those jobs nobody else would want to handle. Ron is survived by sisters Judy (Wayne), Christina (Rick), Wendy (George), Susan and Joy (Garry). He is also survived by nieces and nephews and their children: Aaron and Claire (Brianna and Caleb), Suzanne and Cam (Ailish), Laura and Victor (Seth, Emma and Ben), David and Kim, Jordan and Mary, Myles and Erica, Rachel and friend Tyler, Chase, Nicole and Justin. We will miss you, Uncle Ronnie. Heartfelt thanks from the family to the Doctors who helped Ron through his short illness and to his longtime friend Tom for his strong support to Ron and the family. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to The Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund, The SickKids Foundation, or Make-a-Wish Foundation. A private cremation has taken place. On Saturday, June 29, 2013 there will be a memorial service and celebration of Ron's life between 11-1 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery Visitation Centre. For information, please go to
