Obituary: Ron Comella

September 2, 1959 — February 6, 2019

Our sweet Ron Comella passed over the rainbow February 6, 2019 with his devoted Ben at his side. A humble man and treasure of a person who never realized how much he was valued. We will miss that delicious sense of humor, along with the sweetest demeanor and generous heart. He could do the work of three people and loved working with his father as a diesel mechanic later in his life.

Ron volunteered at Food for Thought, in his recovery community, and personal projects for friends. He was the most devout dog father to Ben, who will probably miss him more than anyone.

To say many loving and special friends will miss Ron is an understatement. Ron's mother and father, Helen and Dante Comella, predeceased him. He is survived by his sister, Denise (John), niece Sarah (Patrick), and nephew Trevor (Kristin). He is also survived by his two loving uncles and several cousins, whom he adored.

Donations can be made to San Francisco AIDS Foundation ( or Castro Country Club ( A memorial will be held at a later date.

You were loved more than you know and will be missed more than can be imagined.
