Because you departed ~ our world became a little emptier.

Ronald Marcos Humerez, born November 21, 1952 in Ithaca, NY passed away Sunday, December 2, 2018 at Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, NY at the age of 66. Ronald was a great son, brother, brother in law and uncle to his family. He graduated from Ithaca High School in 1971 and attended Tompkins Cortland Community College.

Looks are very deceiving; Ronald was very approachable even if you did not think so. Ronald was the recipient of many awards for his positive willingness in helping others and his can-do attitude. He was a best friend to all who knew him. Some of Ron’s favorite things were attending the NY State Fair, the Ithaca Festival and Ithaca firework displays. He also was an expert garage sale enthusiast, always finding the best bargains.

Ronald was predeceased by a younger brother, Ricardo (Ricky) Humerez in 2002. He is survived by his parents, Ricardo & Alice Humerez; an older brother, James (Barbara) Humerez, a younger brother, Eric (Cheryl) Humerez; nieces and nephew, Shannon Moravec, Camellia Stevens, and Alexander Humerez; and many great nieces & nephews and extended family members.
