Ronald Anthony Vega, age 41, of Pepperell, MA, passed away on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 at Lahey Hospital in Burlington, MA. He is survived by his parents, Susan & Richard Cuoco; his brothers, Richard Jr. & Anthony Cuoco; and his nephew, Declan Cuoco. Preceding him in death were his grandparents, Lorraine Crowley, Lillian Cuoco, and Alfred Cuoco.


Ronnie was born on August 6, 1980 in Boston, MA. He grew up in Chelsea, MA where he attended Catholic school before moving to Pepperell. His faith was always an important part of his life, which he shared with both his grandmothers. Ronnie was a strong athlete and had a deep appreciation for nature, literature, film, and especially music, which he shared with his brothers. He enjoyed spending time with family more than anything, and in recent years discovered a new joy in playing with his nephew, Declan, whose admiration for Uncle Ronnie was inspiring.


Ronnie’s genuine kindness and compassion was always apparent. He was a helper by nature, and his evident selflessness was heartwarming.
