CHESHIRE – Ronald J. “Ron” Ostuno, age 70, of Cheshire, entered into rest on Friday, May 28, 2021, at Bristol Hospital. He was born on October 2, 1950 in Waterbury, son of the late Domenic and Frances (Aliano) Ostuno.

Ron worked as a farmer in Cheshire and in Tisbury, Martha’s Vineyard, where he owned and operated his vegetable stand, “The Italian Scallion,” that was frequented by many well-known celebrities that lived on the island. Ron was funny, he had a quick-witted sense of humor and marched to his own drum; he will be remembered as being a “free bird.” 

He is the beloved father of Dustin Roberts of Morris; and he also leaves his loving siblings, Janet von Staats of Cheshire, Sonny Ostuno of Cheshire, Kim Jarjura of Cheshire, and Lori Mossberg of Hamden; his step-sister, Christine Aliano of Cheshire; his step-mother, Helen Larock of Cheshire; his cherished nieces and nephews, Jessica (Chris) Abildgaard, Jeffrey (Krista) Ostuno, John Locus, and Michael, Katie and Anna Jarjura; and his great-nieces and great-nephews, Madelyn, Leah, Jared, Dominic, Dillon, Todd and Ryan.
