Ronald Charfoos, of Bloomfield Hills, died peacefully just after sunset on August 27, 2023.

Ron was a builder in every sense of the word. He built homes and communities with his father, Herbie, throughout Metro Detroit, but his real legacy will be the building and strengthening of each of the communities he touched.

He was a devoted and loving husband of 49 years to Lynda Charfoos. He had an endless reservoir of time, compassion, hugs and kisses for his children Aaron (Nichole) Charfoos and Amye (Lou) Goldhaber and grandchildren Isabella, Jack, Oliver, and Penelope Charfoos, and Ray and Stevie Goldhaber.

Ron was the loving brother of Carol (Charles) Tator, dear brother-in-law of the late William Dregalla, devoted son of the late Herbert and the late Henrietta Charfoos. He was a special uncle of Ira (Janet) Tator, Michael (Carinne) Tator, and Julie Tator. He is also survived by his devoted caregiver, Juanita Hickman.

Ron had a deep commitment to the Jewish community through his love of Jewish summer camps and strengthening our partnership region between Detroit and Israel. He also built a vast community of friends that spread far beyond his Detroit roots with his compassion, sense of humor and ability to tell a great story.
