Raynold T. Petrocelli, born February 21, 1952, in Chicago, IL was called to Heaven Sunday, January 10th, 2021. Born to Raynold O. Petrocelli and Mary Mae Petrocelli he grew up in Merrionette Manor on the Southeast side of Chicago. It was there he began working for his uncle, at the bar/restaurant where his passion for business, cooking and serving his community began. He continued to pursue life in the restaurant business in his late teens, while attending Leo High School on the south side of Chicago, and in his early twenties he partnered with his father in their own restaurant, Little Ray’s Restaurant and Lounge.

With a strong work ethic in mind, Ray attended and graduated from Calumet College of St. Joseph, formerly known as St. Joseph’s Catholic College while running the restaurant. After college, and years of running his own restaurant, and other entrepreneurial endeavors, Ray found his calling in the insurance industry. It was here that his drive and leadership skills shined the brightest, being elevated from a sales agent, to a leadership role in a very short time. As he continued to hone his own skills, he was always willing to share his experiences and knowledge, helping many others along the way.
Ultimately called again by his entrepreneurial spirit, Ray co-founded Allegiance Insurance Services and Agent Support Network of America, ASNOA. A company that is flourishing to this day under his leadership and vision and will forever be part of his legacy.

Pop Pop as he was affectionately called by his 10 grandchildren was the epitome of a family man. A devout Catholic, his faith and family were always first. He loved to spend his time with his grandchildren, whether it was reading books to the little ones or watching them compete in sports, he would never miss an opportunity. Playing golf, good food and wine, storytelling and travel were some other pleasures he enjoyed sharing with his loved ones. He touched the lives of so many and will continue to live on in our hearts forever. Until we meet again, we will love you always.

Services and interment private. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Raynold’s name can be made to Catholic Charities, 721 N. LaSalle Street, Chicago, IL 60654,
