Timothy Ronzia - Class Of 1980

Timothy Edward Ronzia
1962 - 2019

Timothy Edward Ronzia, 56, passed away on March 20, 2019. A long-time resident of Crystal Lake, Ill., Tim was born on July 11, 1962, in Kenosha, Wis., to Edward and Rita Ronzia. He attended St. Joseph's High School, and upon graduating, moved to Madison, Wis. where he entered into a position in the new (at the time) cellular industry. He was employed by AT&T for over 32 years as a Manager of Systems Engineering.

Tim was a great lover of sports; a faithful fan and shareholder of the Green Bay Packers, supporter of the Wisconsin Badgers and the Milwaukee Brewers. Tim had a passion for golf, loved the game and spending time with friends hitting the ball. Tim also had a very keen interest in the history of the Civil War, spent time collecting memorabilia and traveling with his wife Ellen to historical sites.

Tim is survived by his wife Ellen; daughter Julianne; and son Mitchell. He is further survived by his father and mother Edward and Rita Ronzia; sister, Suzanne Kovach; and brother, John (Irene) Ronzia; along with nieces and nephews, Lauren Koeritzer, Drew Koeritzer, Erin Johnston, Paul Johnston, Brandon Blanke and Connor Blanke. All who had the great fortune to know Tim understood that the light of Tim's life was his family and his friends.

Tim, above all else, was a kind, generous and wise individual, and we leave you with four points that he always took to heart - love of family, fear for humanity, respect for nature and awe of God.

Tim's family will be receiving friends on Monday, March 25, from 3 p.m until the time of a service at 7 p.m. at Davenport Family Funeral Home and Crematory, 419 E. Terra Cotta Ave. (Rte. 176), Crystal Lake. Burial will take place privately at Crystal Lake Memorial Park.
