After a long battle with cancer, our loving Father, Grandfather and devoted Husband, Ralph A. Collesian has passed away at the age of 78 on Wednesday November 16, 2016. As in life, he did not give up without a fight, and we were so grateful to have him with us a year longer than first predicted.

He was an accomplished Captain in the US Army, managed multiple Sears Roebuck stores throughout the Northeast and was a successful Real Estate Broker in NY, RI and Florida for more than 30 years. His love of life, sense of humor and desire to help others will be sorely missed.

He is survived by his wife Joan, sons Ralph Jr., Gary and Chad, his sister Carole Olson and 9 grandchildren.

Visiting will be held on Friday November 18, 2016 from 2-4 & 7-9 pm at Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday November 19, 2016 at 11:30 am at St. Joseph's Church, 95 Plum Brook Rd., Somers, NY 10589. Interment will follow at All Souls Cemetery in Pleasantville, NY.

Family and friends are making donations in his memory to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
