RONALD A. FRIED, 58, of Tampa, died April 23. A native of the Washington, DC area, he was a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park. Known for his two tenures with Miami-based VITAS, his portfolio included business development, mergers and acquisitions, public policy and regulatory affairs. He led acquisitions and joint venture initiatives for Tustin, CA-based Sun Healthcare Group. During the first internet boom, he took a temporary break from healthcare to lead business development and mergers and acquisitions for eGlobe, Inc., an application services provider and later handled the same responsibilities for New York-based, a provider of internet domain name registration services. He served on Capitol Hill as a legislative assistant to Florida Congressman Claude Pepper and as a public health policy advisor to former Florida Gov. Bob Graham. In 1991-92 he was national finance director for Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey’s campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. A highly regarded leader of the American Hospice movement, he served as chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Association in 2013-2014. He was also a member of and vice president of the Board of Directors of Florida Hospices and Palliative Care Association and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Hospice Action Network. He advocated for expanded access to hospice and comprehensive end-of-life care, accountability and quality standards for the nation’s hospices, and a strong voice in public policy for hospice patients and their loved ones. Survivors include his wife Cheryl Hamilton Fried; daughter Nora Fried, Brooklyn; stepdaughter Audrey Hamilton, Tampa; brother and sister-in-law Brandon and Kim Fried, Chevy Chase, MD. The family suggests memorials to the National Hospice Foundation, Alexandria, VA or Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, Arlington, VA. (Segal Funeral Home, Beth David Chapel)
