We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Thomas J. Shea Funeral Home, Inc.
Ronald G. Oakley entered eternal life on September 21, 2022. He is predeceased by his parents, Robert Oakley and Elizabeth (Edward) Keane, his brother Wayne Oakley, his brothers-in-law Vincent LoBue and Daniel Juraska and his sister-in-law Jean Oakley. He is survived by his loving wife Anne, his children Elizabeth (Tom) Galligan, Robert, Ronald (Jeanna), Anthony (Nadia) and Jeffrey (Amanda) Oakley, his brothers Robert Oakley and Stephen (Heather) Oakley, sister Betty-Ann Juraska, his sisters-in-law Kim Oakley, Vicki LoBue, Mary (Larry) Olsen, Linda (Ralph) Mancini, and Elizabeth (Mike) Cartini, and his grandchildren Christopher, Nathaniel and Michael Galligan, Amelia, Lily and Jacob Oakley, Catherine and Christopher Oakley, and Logan and Anthony Oakley, and many more family and friends. Ronald was a Navy Veteran and retired from IBM (EIT) after over 25 years of service. He was a lifelong motorcyclist and president of the Franklin Doodlebug Club. He had a heart of gold and endless compassion for others. He always rooted for the underdog and would and could fix anything for anyone expecting nothing in return. Ronald was happiest when he was surrounded by his family or cruising on his motorcycles or his Model A Doodlebug. Not to mention, he never met a meal or dessert he didn’t like. Ronald will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
