Obituary

Colagreco
1958~2021

Ronald N. "Ronnie", age 63 of Bristol, PA, formerly of Overbrook, passed away peacefully on November 3, 2021 surrounded by his loved ones.

Born and raised in Overbrook, Ron enjoyed fishing, traveling with family, spending time with his fiancé Teresa, his daughter, and grandchildren.
Everyone who met him loved him.

Ron's other passion was live music. Especially the Grateful Dead and Joe Russo's Almost Dead (JRAD). Ever since Ronnie was a teenager, he embraced every aspect of music. He enjoyed traveling around the country chasing opportunities to hear his favorite songs as well as getting to meet and know the artists personally.

It wasn't uncommon for Ron to do runs of 5 concerts in 5 different states over the course of 5 days. This led him to be part of an amazing community of fans which would soon become a huge extended loving/supporting family to Ron. Many of these relationships turned into lifelong bonding friendships.

Ron had an infectious smile, was a natural born storyteller, to go along with always having an incredible sense of humor. A world class prankster. As his daughter recently reminded us, it was often said that he could "sell ice to an Eskimo." Ronnie had an incredible love for dogs and supporting animal rescue groups.

The Colagreco & Grateful Dead/JRAD families have lost a true warrior. He will live forever in our hearts and his memories will live on.

Predeceased by his beloved parents Mary (nee Ciarrocchi) and Nicholas D. Colagreco and his dear brother Nicholas Colagreco.

Survived by his beloved Fiancé Teresa McGeehan; his cherished daughter Natalie Tomlinson (John); his 3 adoring grandchildren Hunter, Brinley and Nathan; his dear brothers Pat J. Colagreco (Charlotte) and David Colagreco (Joanne); his loving niece Danette (his god daughter) and nephews Pat N., David F.,
and Nicholas; and many great nieces and nephews.
