Tribute & Message From The Family

Ronald R. Fiore of Stoneham, June 3, 2019 at age 71. Beloved husband of Christine (Mullaney) Fiore, with whom he shared over 47 years of marriage. Devoted father of Arlene Field and her husband Brendan, Tricia Allwardt and her husband Jeff, Laura La Francesca and her husband Vito, and Karen Guillaume and her husband Jeff. Cherished grandfather of Clarissa, Serena, Josephine, Cole, Elsa, Viola, Maria, Luca, and Adriana. Dear brother of Janet Gearin and her husband Richard, Daniel Fiore and his wife Kathleen, and brother-in-law of Leland Mullaney. Son of the late Ralph and Gertrude (Babin) Fiore. Also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins. Ron was the quintessential family man with a ready smile and a great sense of humor.

A graduate of Winchester High School, Ron went on to study at Northeastern where he earned his B.S. and M.S. in engineering. He worked as a structural engineer for the Coast Guard and for Metcalf & Eddy (now AECOM), where he spent most of his career until he retired in 2015. A Stoneham resident for over 40 years, he was active in the community as coach of several soccer, basketball, and softball teams, registrar of Stoneham Soccer Club, president of the Friends of the Library, and as a member of the school building committee for all four Stoneham elementary schools. He designed materials for children's liturgy and served as a eucharistic minister at St. Patrick for many years.

Ron fought a long, courageous battle with leukemia. He inspired everyone who knew him with his optimism, resilience, and dignity. Ron was incredibly grateful to the MGH staff on Lunder 10, his home away from home for the last eight months, and to his anonymous bone marrow donor who gave him the chance to extend his fight.

Condolence & Memory Journal

The happiest guy I ever knew. He didn't let anyone's ideas of what was right bother him. So he kept doing what he saw as right. Proud to have known him.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Fiore. He was such a kind and loving father to his children when I had them in kindergarten. I remember him as being very involved in the girls' sports as well as their education. The world lost a wonderful man.

My friend and former boss died on June 3rd. I know Ron did not like being called a boss. We learned that the day a client asked him how many engineers were on his staff and he said five. The client looked around and quickly counted four and called Ron on the number. Ron responded you forgot to count me. Ron my friend and former boss rest in peace. -- George
