Ron Lazarus died June 5, 2021, in Atlanta. In Ron’s own words: “Lasting for a lifetime. Our journey continues in business and devoted lasting friendships forever. Building a successful business, Affairs to Remember Caterers, these 43 years has brought us the joys of so many wonderful friends and employees along with bringing joy to clients on their special life moments. Seeing the growth of a young business into a respected entity in the Atlanta hospitality market, managed by wonderfully committed and creative individuals, is a joyful and satisfying tribute to so many. I leave this earth a grateful man. I have experienced great love in my life. My spouse of 22 years, John Wise, has always been by my side in sickness and in health. We have shared so very much in our time together – true love. My dear friend Scott Ardolino by my side in our life’s journey – true friendship and love. Friendships and love for decades. Special friends have made life a beautiful experience of living.”
Ron was predeceased by parents Jack Lazarus and Yetta Shapiro Lazarus. He is survived by a sister Barbara Emmer of Gainesville, Fla.; his spouse John Lawrence Wise; and his best friend and business partner, Scott Ardolino. No service is scheduled. A private “Celebration of Life” will be announced at a later date.
