Ronald Richard ‘Ron’ Drolet

LOWELL        Ronald Richard Drolet, 41, of Lowell,  passed away unexpectedly after a brief illness, Monday, August 19, 2019, at Lowell General Hospital. He was a son of Darlene (Drolet) Valkavitch of Lowell and the late Ronald Valkavitch.

He also enjoyed watching his son play football, and enjoyed fishing as well. More than anything, Ron was a family man and  spending time with his children was his greatest joy. Seeing his daughter, Kearrah graduate from high school in June was the proudest moment of his life. For many years, he worked as a painter in the Lowell area.
