Ronald A Hayeck

Ronald Albert, “Ron” Hayeck, of Succasunna, NJ, died November 22, 2023, at Morristown Memorial Hospital after a short battle with cancer. He just turned 53 years old.

Ron was born at St. Barnabas Hospital in Livingston, NJ, October, 21, 1970, to the late Maryann T. Hayeck nee Morrone of Newark NJ, and Ronald B. Hayeck of East Orange, NJ. The family moved to Succasunna in 1975.

Ron attended St. Therese Catholic grade school. Ron graduated from Roxbury High School in 1989, from Rowan University in 1995, where he became a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity.

He loved the New York Yankees, and played second base in both Little League, and later softball. He would go on to meet countless iconic New York Yankees: Mantle, DiMaggio, Mattingly, Jeter and more. Fittingly, Ron even caught a home run ball at Yankee Stadium once.

Ron learned carpentry from his father, and spent childhood afternoons and weekends building decks and finishing basements with the family business. Ron developed a love for live music in high school, seeing his favorite artist, Sammy Hagar in concert over fifty times. He also enjoyed pinball, skiing, bowling, golf, and recently took up cycling.

It was after losing his maternal grandfather, Dominick Morrone in 1983, that Ron was introduced to what would become his inspiration later in life: a family trip to Walt Disney World. It was at Walt Disney World, where Ron was the happiest. He would later take his children annually, cherishing every moment they shared at ‘The Most Magical Place on Earth.’

A born salesman, Ron had the type of energy that would influence those around him, an infectious smile and aura of excitement followed him everywhere. Ron began his career at Minolta Business Systems, and later Equifirst Mortgages. It was during a sales call that Ron would meet the love of his life, Janice Rose Maddaloni of Rockaway, the daughter of former Rockaway mayor, the late Frank Maddaloni, and his late wife, opera singer Adeline Maddaloni.

Ron and Janice began a whirlwind romance, were engaged in three months, and married November 1999. In 2001, the overjoyed couple welcomed a son, Dylan Anthony Hayeck. In 2003, the couple were blessed with a daughter, Tori Rose Hayeck.

In 2012, after the loss of his mother, Maryann Hayeck, Ron founded Mickey World Travel – a family-run agency that would connect other families with the memory making magic of Disney. Mickey World Travel became a living testament to his mother, and the joy that only family can create. Mickey World Travel has since grown into one of the largest Disney Travel Agencies in the country, all in less than ten years.

The family business, Mickey World Travel will continue on, helmed by his wife and children, just as Ron had always intended. Although Ron had many passions, traveling and spending time with his family is what always meant the most.

Ron is survived by his wife Janice Rose Hayeck, son Dylan Anthony Hayeck, and daughter Tori Rose Hayeck; his father Ronald B. Hayeck of Delray Beach, Florida; his brother Vincent Hayeck and family of Rockville, Maryland.
