Ronilo Gan Quitco (1959- 2020), of Elizabeth, New Jersey passed away on April 12, 2020. He was born to Bienvenido Quitco and Felomina Gan Quitco on August 26, 1959 in Bacolod, Philippines. He was fondly called Ronnie by those closest to him. Ronnie worked at United Airlines for over 30 years and was well liked and loved by all those he in came in contact with. His colleagues and friends remember him as a good and kind hearted individual who brightened their day with a smile and conversation. Ronnie loved to travel all over the world, but he equally also loved to spend time with his family. He was a family man and took to heart the role of taking care of his family—mother, wife, children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Ronnie was very industrious and enterprising and was a jack of all trades and used his many talents to bless so many of his loved ones. Ronnie often had a solution before anyone even realized there was a problem and he was always on the go and ready to work. Ronnie loved good food, and even better company and was so in tune with those he came in contact with and made many lifelong friends and connections. Ronnie was a Freemason and was part of a lodge and brotherhood that he loved dearly. He lived his life in service to those that he loved, and on a daily basis, did acts of goodness and service quietly for everyone around him. Ronnie was a remarkable man in many ways but he was also very humble. He spent his time healing, helping, loving, and spreading joy and will be missed by many people all over the world. Ronnie is preceded in death by his father Bienvenido Quitco and siblings Dennis Quitco, Ray Quitco, May Quitco, Marlon Quitco and is survived by his mother: Felomina Quitco, wife: Rosemarie Go, daughters: Marie Chantelle Quitco Viator, Beatriz Grace Quitco, son: Rannie Quitco, stepdaughter: Mariellerose Go and four grandchildren: Lily Caitlyn-Jean Viator, Gracie Sorensen, Kyle Ronnie Viator and Hunter Sorensen and siblings: Leslie Quitco Tiamzon and Ben Quitco and many numerous nieces and nephews and family members who love him dearly. When saying farewell to family after visiting, tears were always present and Ronnie did not like to see his loved one’s cry, because he would also become sad and start to cry and so he would say, “It’s okay. I see you again soon.” It is that heartfelt promise that we, his loved ones now cling to as we mourn our beloved’s passing. Until we meet again.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
