Ronald Robert Roelke Obituary
September 27, 1933 - October 24, 2015 Ron, a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away suddenly to the despair of all who loved him. He was a loving, supportive husband to Mary Anne for 59 years. His children, Mark (Wendy Abkin), Toni and Lisa (Michael Salvaggio) adored him. He loved his grandchildren, Jason (Bri), Sara, Andrea, Nick, Seth and Samantha, and they loved their Papa. He was thrilled to be a great-grandfather to Hailey and treasured his best friend "Buddy." Ron was a loving brother to Joan, Arline, Susie, Gregg and Lee. He was a generous, caring, giving, funny, unique man and a supportive friend to many. Ron and Mary Anne traveled the world and after vacationing in Italy, Ron's favorite, he became a specialist in Italian cooking to the delight of his family and friends who felt honored to be invited to his dinners. His children will forever miss the special dinners they chose on their birthdays. Ron had a successful 49 year mortgage banking career as owner of Mylor Financial and Mirage Escrow. He was a generous and caring employer. Through the years Ron and Mary Anne supported Operation Bootstrap, Fair Housing Council, Women's Care Cottage and MEND because they cared deeply for those who were trying to raise themselves up by their bootstraps and felt privileged to be able to do so. A celebration of the life of this dear man will be held on Sunday, November 22, 2015 from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm in Santa Monica. Please call 818-216-1869 to RSVP and get the location. Donations in honor of Ron can be made to Planned Parenthood, 400 W. 30th Street, Los Angeles, 90007.
