Ronald Podhirny, 53, of Eatontown passed away suddenly April 7, 2022.
Ronald was born to the late Stanley Sr. and Maria Podhirny on Oct 7, 1968 in Brooklyn New York. Ron was the baby of six children (which he constantly reminded you of), raised in Eatontown where he graduated from Monmouth Regional High School. After graduation he worked at Fort Monmouth Military Base as an event planner. And for the last 20 years he was Director of Catering for Jumping Brook Country Club.
Ron’s sense of humor and quick wit stands out like no other. If you were a part of his life you know how funny he was. His generosity and kindness will never be forgotten.
He enjoyed being a part of so many people’s lives through his planning of their special events, weddings, anniversaries, christenings, proms etc. He enjoyed all of it. His true passion and dedication was to his career. He had a great love for his family and friends. And his special kitty “MILO” who had brought him much comfort in the last 2 years and Ron will now rest in peace with our mother.
