Richard Ferronato, 89, died peacefully at St Michael’s hospital on Feb 8th, 2024.

Loving, humble, loyal, and proud, he was the kindest man you’d ever know and always willing to help a friend.

Born in San Francisco, California, he had a full and happy life. He provided well for his family: played professional baseball, worked in the grocery, PR, and retail business, was a veteran, worked for the government, and lived in 3 of the most beautiful states, California, Hawaii, and Washington. He was proud to be member #62 of the Native Sons of California, Guadalupe Parlor No. 231 for 72 years. He loved baseball, watching his 49ers, and playing golf into his late 80s. He and his wife loved having bridge parties with their closest friends. They traveled to Europe on their own and with friends many times and fell in love with Ireland. He collected Pinocchio’s and loved cruising with Disney and going to Disney World with his family.

He is survived by his wife Valerie of almost 64 years, his cousin(brother) Bob, son David, daughter Deborah, grandchildren Amber and Steven, and many great grandchildren as well as countless friends. He was a loving and kind husband and the best Dad ever. He loved and was beloved by many and will be tremendously missed.

Richard did not want a service and his interment will be private and at the convenience of the family.
