Ronald A. DeLuca Sr.

Age 82, of Shaler Twp., on Sunday, December 25, 2022, Mr. DeLuca was the loving husband of Angela M. Canzano DeLuca for 61 years. He was the son of the late Emeric and Grace DeLuca; father of Dr. Christy DeLuca Bugel, Carolyn DeLuca and Ronald A. DeLuca Jr. (Cristina); cherished Pap-Pap of Garrett R. (Shannon) Lynn, Talia M. Bugel, and Santino C. DeLuca; brother of Dr. Emeric (Patricia) DeLuca and Joyce (John) McPeak; also survived by many nieces and nephews. He was born and raised in Highland Park, then became a lifetime resident of Glenshaw in Shaler Township with his wife and children. Ron most enjoyed his family, his beloved pets, and his work as the proprietor of DeLuca’s Hair Center located in the Westin William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh for over 50 years. His humor, kindness and empathy was much appreciated, particularly by his clients with special needs. Making the lives better of burn victims and those suffering from cancer and alopecia was extremely important to him. Ron’s love of travel took him and his family far and wide, but spoiling his three grandchildren was what he enjoyed most of all. He will be greatly missed and remembered as a generous, loving and genuine person who touched the lives of all those he met.
