Ronald Vincent Wysocki passed away suddenly during the night on Friday, January 14, 2022. He had been admitted to Trinitas Hospital 2 days prior for an onset of conditions that were worsening quickly. He was 77 years old.
Ron was born to Vincent & Johanna (Wehland) Wysocki & grew up in Union, NJ. He eventually settled in New Providence, NJ to raise his 3 children with his former wife, Janet. Over the past decade he lived in Roselle Park, where he made many new friends & acquaintances.

After graduating from Union High School, Ron went on to earn a BA in Political Science from Bloomfield College. He then joined the U.S. Army for a year before being honorably discharged for a physical condition he acquired while serving. He also held a NJ Real estate License for most of his life.
Most of Ron’s career centered around real estate. In his younger days, he owned a couple of multifamily residences around the Kearny area. Later he dabbled in a few businesses to assist with home ownership & as well as other investments.

He was an animal lover as well, assisting with helping wildlife in need or homeless pets he came across. His volunteer work & helping his family & friends in need however he could truly gave him a sense of purpose & joy. Lending a hand was the best outlet for his generosity.
