Ronald D. “Merc” Mercadante, 83 of Baden, passed away on Monday, July 6, 2020 at his residence.
One of twelve children, he was the son of the late John and Roberta (Pfaff) Mercadante and a graduate of Hopewell High School.
After completing a four year apprentice program, Ron became part of the LTV “Line and Wire Gang” from where he later retired. Self employed since 1985, Ron established Mercadante & Sons Electric and proudly worked until the age of 80. Anyone who knew or worked with Ron admired his unwavering work ethic.
