On November 30, 2020, Ralph Greco, Jr., 59, of North Haledon passed on to his eternal home. Ralph was born in Bronx, NY on June 2, 1961 to the late Ralph Greco, Sr. and Olga (Fernandez) Greco.

Ralph was known by all for his delicious cooking, weekly pool parties, and being a prankster. He loved to make others smile and laugh. Ralph and Linda hosted every holiday at their home with the common goal of uniting family and friends. There was an open door policy in the home and Ralph never let anyone leave with an empty stomach. Ralph made each Christmas special by dressing up as Santa and bringing gifts to the children and eventually grandchildren. Ralph left an everlasting legacy of love and light.
