In Memory of Ron Diorio

In Memory of Ron, the Kapadia Education Foundation has launched a memorial fund to honor and celebrate his lifelong commitment to the importance of education and mentoring young people.

A larger-than-life personality, Ron was held in high regard by his family, friends, and professional peers for his extreme intellect, his outrageous sense of humor, and his devotion to his family and close friends. His wide-ranging passions included Shakespeare, travel, education, languages, gardening, baking bread, and Italian cooking – especially pignoli cookies. His number one passion, however, was his family, where he was inseparable from his wife of 64 years and beloved by his children and nine grandchildren.

“Ron Diorio should be praised and remembered for being a primary catalyst for life-long learning opportunities throughout South West Florida. His legacy lives on.” - Jack Crocker, Founding Arts & Sciences Dean at FGCU Academy

Your contribution will celebrate Ron's life as Kapadia Education Foundation prepares to launch two new partnerships in India and Cambodia, and admit our 600th scholar into our scholarship program.
