Ronald James Rogari, 53, passed away on October 11, 2017 in Safety Harbor, Florida. He was predeceased by his father Ralph in 2014 and his mother Rose Marie in 2017. Born May 28, 1964 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Ron was the younger brother of Ralph Jr. and Karen. After graduating from Delone Catholic High School in McSherrystown, Pennsylvania, he attended the University of Tampa, where he was on the crew team and a member of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. After earning a BS degree in Business Management and Management Information Systems, Ron began his career as an IT consultant in the financial and healthcare sectors.
In 1992, Ron married the love of his life, Linda, his wife for 25 wonderful years. Five years later, they founded The Rogari Group, Inc., an IT solutions provider firm. In 1998, their daughter Tessa was born—the joy of their lives. Ron took great pleasure in coaching, mentoring, and volunteering for all of Tessa’s extracurricular activities. He loved his family and lived life to the fullest, enjoying travelling, sports, boating, culinary arts, and cooking.
Those who knew Ron loved his engaging personality and infectious sense of humor. His always-positive demeanor and joyful attitude were unforgettable, and he added spirit to every conversation. A loyal friend who would do anything for others, Ron also was a master of his profession and loved to discuss anything IT or technology related. He savored life and never took a single day for granted. Words can’t express how deeply Ron will be missed by his family and friends.
A service will be held at Espiritu Santo Catholic Church, 2405 Philippe Parkway, Safety Harbor, Florida on October 28, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. A celebration of Ron’s life will follow immediately after at the Parish Center.
