Ronald R. Both (Ron) of New Hope, PA passed away Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. He was 62.

Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late Ulrich and Ella Both of Warrington, PA. Ron grew up in Cheltenham, PA where he graduated from Cheltenham High and then received his Bachelors degree in Engineering from Spring Garden College in 1982. A devoted son and father, he worked with his family in many real estate projects in Bucks, Lehigh and Philadelphia County as well as Cape May County, New Jersey. One of his local projects was establishing the first Mediterranean eatery in Lambertville; The Wild Nile. He also aided in his family estate to become the VIA Designer House of Bucks County of 2020.

Surviving are his wife, Donna Peiffer-Both and his two daughters, Marissa Both of Philadelphia, Elizabeth Both of New Hope and his stepson Luke J. Peiffer of Levittown, PA.

A jack of all trades, he was an innovative thinker, builder, designer, salesman, entrepreneur and above all, as he reminded anyone and everyone he was “an engineer.” His creative ideas were often a catalyst and inspiration to others.

Friends and relatives greeted the family on Monday, November 6th starting at 3:00 P.M. at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 50 York Street Lambertville, NJ. A memorial service followed at 4:00 P.M.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Penn Medicine or to the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI). More information on how to donate is listed in the “Contacts” section above.
