Ronald Bonzo

November 18, 1937 — January 16, 2020

Ronald G. Bonzo, 82, of Sciotoville, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, January 16, 2020, at his home with family by his bedside.  Born on November 18, 1937 in Scioto County, he was a son of the late Gilbert and Agnes Sergent Bonzo and was a longtime member of Berean Baptist Church in Sciotoville, Ohio.  A devoted follower of Jesus, he was a husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.

Ron graduated in 1955 from East High School and attended Ohio University.  He worked in the foundry industry in several different states throughout his career and enjoyed all things mechanical.  He was capable of building or repairing anything and was happiest cutting grass on his John Deere tractor and using his Kubota.

Also preceding him in death were two brothers, an infant, Roger, and Richard Bonzo and a sister, Dorothy Beadle.

Surviving are his wife of 63 years, Bridget Goetz Bonzo, a son, Dr. James Matthew (Dorothe) Bonzo of Sand Lake, MI; three daughters, Sandra Ellen Bonzo of Sciotoville, Debora Ann (Geof) Phillips of Wilmington, OH and Terry Jo (Dr. Jeff) Heffelfinger of Burlington, NC; a sister, Dr. Suzann Bonzo of Sciotoville; four grandchildren, Matthew Heffelfinger, Matthias (Brooke) Bonzo, Mallory Heffelfinger and Hannah Phillips, along with several cousins, nieces, nephews; and a very special friend and helper, Darrell Semones.

A Celebration of Ron’s Life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 23rd, at Berean Baptist Church with Pastor Steve Mann officiating.  Interment will be in Memorial Burial Park.

The family will receive guests at Berean Baptist Church after 11:00 a.m. on Thursday.
