He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Rose Marie (McMindes) Vallet; daughters, Heather (Paul) Richards of East Syracuse and Kristen Vallet of Syracuse; a son, Ronald (Heather) Vallet, Jr. of Manlius; grandchildren, Matthew, Nikita, Nicholas and Davahn Richards, Carly, Benjamin, Luke and Hailey Vallet, and Taylor and Toby Tummino.
