John A. Rambone, Sr.

December 19, 1942 ~ July 12, 2020 (age 77)


77, of Johnston, passed away peacefully on July 12, 2020 surrounded by his loving family.  He was the husband of the late Cheryl (LaForge) Rambone, whom he was married to for 53 years and adored.

Born in Providence, he was the son of the late Antonio and Rose (Martinelli) Rambone.

Mr. Rambone was a highly respected third-generation farmer. He and his brother Anthony were co-owners of Rambone Brothers Farm & Excavation and Rambone Disposal Services.

He enjoyed farming, collecting tractors, antique cars, hunting, and was the happiest when his grandchildren accompanied him.

His hard work ethic and determination led him to be a self-made successful business man. He made an everlasting impact on all who were fortunate enough to cross his path.

Rambone, Jr. and his wife Mary Jane of North Scituate and Timothy Rambone and his wife Susan of Foster; a brother, Anthony Rambone of Johnston; a sister Carolyn DiFazio of Scituate; and six cherished grandchildren, Jenna Rose, John III, Antonio, Timothy, Isabella, and Jack.
