Queens County Republican Chairman Phil Ragusa passed away Tuesday, around 1pm, from complications due to his battle with leukemia. Chairman Ragusa dedicated his life to serving his community and the Republican Party. He voluntarily served the United War Veterans Council and the Little Neck Douglaston Memorial Day Parade doing their accounting and tax returns pro bono up until this year’s parade in May. He was a patriot who loved his city, state and country. Our prayers go out to the Ragusa family, friends and fellow Republicans who knew him. May you rest in peace Chairman Ragusa.
