Toms River – Ronald W. D’Apuzzo age 88, passed away on Monday February 1, 2021. He had been in declining health since his heart attack in 2017. He contracted the COVID Virus while in the hospital and passed away. Ronald was born March 7, 1932 to the late Jerry and Gilda D’Apuzzo in Brooklyn NY. He and his family moved to Howell NJ when his father opened Jerry’s Produce Stand and subsequently opened a frozen custard stand serving beachgoers coming to the Jersey Shore via Rt 9, before the Garden State Parkway was built. Ronald served 2 years in the US Army (1952-1954) stationed in Germany. After returning home, he started his own Electrical Contracting company (Central Electric). He owned and operated Central Electric along with his partner Louis Frank for over 40 years, retiring in 1999. Ron was a very talented man who could build and fix anything. He was a master Electrician and craftsman; his skills were truly exceptional. Ronald was also a loving husband and father who put his family first.
