Ronald "Ronnie" Hamilton Shone, of Scituate, passed away August 28, 2021, after a long, brave battle with cancer. Ronnie is predeceased by his parents H. Ronald Shone and M. Beverly Shone. He and his brother Robert "Bob" Shone were raised from a very young age in the family business | Ronnie Shone General Store | but still had time for countless adventures and pick-up games. Ronnie graduated from Thayer Academy in 1963 where he was president of his class and a 3 sport athlete. He went on to Bowdoin College, Class of 1967, for whom he played football. He was a proud Marine. Ronnie's first job was setting up library systems for colleges in the US and Canada in a pre-computer age. The death of his father in 1973 brought him back to the store which became his legacy. Survived by his wife Karen Nechtem Shone, his son Brad Shone (wife Jennifer, daughter Sophie), his daughter Robin Shone Hutton (husband Jeff and children Marisa, Molly, Alex), brother Robert Shone (wife Jennifer, children Brint and Tristan and their families); close knit Nechtem in-laws, Judge Amy Nechtem, Todd and Lynne Nechtem and their children and grandchildren. Funeral services will be private. In lieu of flowers donations in his memory may be made to Dana Farber Cancer Institute at www.dana-farber.org Division of Hematology/Oncology. Please consider joining "Be The Match". Ron loved life. His passions included golf, fishing, crossword puzzles, and most of all his grandchildren who called him "Ronnie". His family is comforted knowing he has found peace, and will hit 'em straight. Words of comfort can be left at www.richardsongaffeyfuneralhome.com Richardson-Gaffey 781-545-0196

Mr. Shone, Sir, as a fellow Marine I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the USMC. It was the history and accomplishments made by you and your fellow Marines of the "Old Corps" that all us Marines who followed in your footsteps have always tried to live up to. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. Semper Fi Devil Dog! Mike Casey USMC `85-`89
