WAYNE, N.J. – Wayne native Dennis Ragusa passed away. He was 40.
The 1995 Wayne Hills High School graduate died suddenly on June 25, leaving behind his wife, Tara, and two children, Cameron and Julianna.
“He had a big heart and could always make you laugh,” states a GoFundMe page created to help his family pay for a funeral and final arrangements.
He was also “a loving caring husband, father, brother and uncle,” the page states.
Ragusa lived in Denville when he died. He lived in Florida for a while, and moved back to New Jersey after his brother was diagnosed with ALS so he could assist with his care.
“The family has been helping with medical bills and treatment for him as well,” the page states.
As of Wednesday afternoon, more than $3,000 had been raised to help the Ragusa family.
