Ronald Steven Deptula

AGE: 13 Months • Wilmington

Ronald Steven Deptula received his angel wings on January 30, 2017. Born in Newark on December 29, 2015, he is the son of Ronald M. and Ashley L. (Buchanan) Deptula. Although Little Ronnie was only with us a brief time, he has touched many hearts with his amazing smile and adorable personality.

Little Ronnie loved anything with sirens, especially fire trucks and police cars. His favorite times were spent playing with his big sister, Libby, and giggling from his special mommy tickles. Little Ronnie loved his cat and everyone's dogs. He always kept everyone entertained with his games of peek-a-boo and patty cake.

In addition to his loving parents, Little Ronnie is survived by his big sister, Libby Serene Deptula; his grandparents, Paulene and John J. Buchanan, Jr. and Nikki S. and the late Ronald R. Deptula, all of Wilmington; his great grandparents, Madlon Buchanan of Wilmington, Maryann and Larry Murphy of Wilmington, and Geraldine and Kenneth Hollingsworth of High Point, NC; his aunt, Kristyn Veid and her husband, Richard of Smyrna; his uncle, John J. Buchanan, III of Wilmington; as well as his god parents, William and Amy Mossinger, and his god brother, Robert Mossinger.

Family and friends are invited to visit on Monday, February 6, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM at Peniel United Methodist Church, 115 E. Market St., Newport, DE 19804, where a Celebration of Little Ronnie's Life will begin at 12:30 PM. Interment will follow at All Saints Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Ronald S. Deptula Memorial Fund, C/O WSFS Bank, Midway Banking Office, 4601 Kirkwood Hwy., Wilmington, DE 19808.
