Richard L. Ronchi, 73 of Factoryville died Tuesday Dec. 10, 2019 at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, in Philadelphia. Born in Peckville on July 30, 1946; he was the son of the late Louis and Mary Marconi Ronchi. His wife of 45 years is the former Colleen Nichols. They were married on July 27, 1974.
Rich was a Biology teacher for 15 years at each school: Lackawanna Trail School District, Wallenpaupack Area School District and Keystone College. He was a member of the Factoryville Men’s Civic Club and some of his favorite times were spent fishing, playing cards with his buddies, and doing the daily crossword puzzle. He enjoyed being a coach of baseball, basketball, and track. With many seasons spent on the fields of Lackawanna Trail and Wallenpaupack Area, Rich had a passion for coaching football. As much as he loved to coach, he also spent time being the biggest fan of his children and grandchildren in all of their activities.

Surviving beside his wife is a daughter Lindsey Ronchi of New York City; his son Tim and his wife Melissa of Dalton; two grandchildren Avery and Abbey; sister Donna Salva of Dalton and a brother Raymond Ronchi of Pompano Beach, FL.
