Obituary of Ronald Aaron Weinstein
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ronald “Ron” Aaron Weinstein
who peacefully left us at the age of 74 on December 21, 2023 at home surrounded by
his wife, close friends, and caregivers. He was a beloved husband, brother, uncle, and
brother-in-law, a successful entrepreneur, and a cherished friend.
Ron was born October 25, 1949 in Dover, Delaware. He spent his youth playing baseball
and at the beach with his cousins. He graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in
business and worked for many years in the eyewear industry. Ron spent his early
adulthood in Texas and Kansas and the remainder of his life in Colorado, where he met
and married his wife Pearl “Patti” (Rosenblatt) Weinstein. They met in Denver and made
their permanent home in Vail. Together, Ron and Patti embarked on a shared adventure,
not only in marriage and traveling but also in business. Their entrepreneurial spirit led
them to establish Roxy, a chain of clothing stores in Vail, Beaver Creek, and Denver. Their
partnership was a source of inspiration to all who knew them.
Ron Weinstein was preceded in death by his parents Julius and Mary Weinstein. Ron is
survived by his loving wife Patti Weinstein; his brother Allan Weinsten; dear cousins
Tammy Engel, Dena Palermo, Karen Hogan (Jeff), Marilyn McFatridge (Kieth) who were
like sisters to him; and Aunt Rose Hanovice; his sister-in-law and brother-in-law Ruthie
and Nick George of Akron, Ohio; nephews and nieces Niko George, Micaela O’Leary, and
Ida George of Midway, Utah; and Mimi, Rick, Sidney, and Josie Kent of Los Angeles;
cousins Theresa, Michael, Tia, Willow Carr, and Alexine Carr Jesso and husband Caleb;
and the many godchildren he “accumulated” throughout life.
Ron leaves behind a legacy of enduring friendships. He had a rare gift for cultivating and
maintaining connections that lasted a lifetime. His unique sense of humor was one you
either “got” or you didn’t, and if you did, you were endeared to him forever. The love
Ron had for animals, particularly his and Patti’s cherished dogs, added warmth and
unconditional love to their home. Ron found joy and solace in the beauty of nature. He
was an avid skier and golfer, and his enthusiasm for these sports was infectious.
Our family wishes to extend our deepest appreciation to the devoted caretakers who
played an instrumental role in Ron’s life during his challenging illness. We would like to
thank (in Vail, Colorado) Caroline, Rosa, Carmen, Susan, Ashley, as well as Hospice of the
Valley, and (in Palm Desert, California)Yvette, Maria and Christina. Their selfless
dedication and tireless efforts exemplified the true meaning of compassionate care,
providing not only medical support but also genuine friendship, companionship and
Graveside Service will be held Thursday, December 28, 2023 at Rose Hill Cemetery in Ohio, 3653
West Market Street, Akron, OH 44333 at 1PM. Shiva meal to follow at George residence.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to CurePSP would be appreciated.
