May 13, 1945 ~ January 1, 2020

Ronald M. Havener, 74 of Fair Lawn NJ,(formerly of River Vale, NJ) passed away on January 1st 2020.

Ronnie was born in the Bronx, NY on May 13, 1945.

He loved to help people. For 48 years he was self-employed as a public accountant and took the time to get to know each and every person who came into his office. His incredible kindness, generosity and wacky sense of humor shone through in all that he did. He kept toys and tootsie roll pops on his desk in an effort to ensure that getting your taxes done was a fun and (mostly) headache free experience. He loved to laugh and kept a vast collection of jokes (dirty and otherwise) under a pane of glass on his desk. He had an eclectic taste in music and especially loved the Beatles.

He is survived by his son Alexander “Alex“ Havener (Miranda), daughter Ally M. Havener, “Pop-Pop” of Matthew. Beloved Uncle Ronnie of Steven Marton (Candace) and Richard Marton (Susan) and grand-uncle of their son Ryan. Beloved “baby brother” of Sol Rothman (Sharon), late sister Millie Marton, late brother Harry Schnell and late brother Walter Schnell. Beloved Uncle Ronnie of Caryn Armagno (Robert)

He is greatly missed and always remembered by his dear friends and loved ones: Jin Chiu Lu, Marybeth Rogers, Steve Resnick and his goddaughters Liisa Song and Tina Lu Ma, as well as countless others he has helped over many years. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
