Ron Marraccini is my cousin and sadly we lost him Jan 3, 2011. He had no formal musical training; he could not read music but he could sure write and play it. His talent was a gift from Above and nurtured in a music centered family, who sang and harmonized together. Ronnie could make the accordian talk in songs like Golden Earrings, Crazy and his favorite, Lady of Spain. From the accordian he moved to the piano, making the keyboard resonate in concert style music he composed and rocking do-wop come alive in his Elvis Presley style do. He will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved him.
