Ronald Kessler

September 20, 1945 — May 7, 2021

Heaven’s choir got a great singer today, Friday, May 7, 2021.  Ron Kessler was born (September 20, 1945) and raised in Trenton, NJ before residing years later in Levittown, PA.

As a young boy, Ron would harmonize with his twin brother and later his love for music quickly became a huge part of his life. For over 25 years he was on stage in his 5-man, 50’s and 60’s cover band, Holiday Five. The band was famous for entertaining crowds at wedding receptions, bars, and special music venues around New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

After coming to faith in Jesus, Ron directed the adult choir at Nassau Christian Center, Princeton, NJ and assisted his wife in the Children’s Ministry with various productions and the children’s choir. Later, he was a part of a gospel trio called Just His. They recorded several albums over the years and would bring joy through music to many audiences at churches and conferences.

As a people person, his professional career started in sales for multiple trucking companies. From there he led international sales efforts at Cardone Industries, and later worked for Acosta Foods. He also became successful at helping families find a home with his real estate license through Century 21. His career ended years later with Security Department roles at both Parx Casino and Reedman Toll.
