Ronald A. Brophy, 43, a former resident of the Baltimore area, died Monday at a hospital in Somers Point, N.J., after fighting leukemia for nearly seven years.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Solebury Quaker Meeting in Solebury, Pa.

Mr. Brophy had lived in New Hope, Pa., before moving recently to Newtown, Pa. Before his illness, he had been a wholesale grower and broker of flowers and plants with Parker's Greenhouse in Scotts Plains, N.J.

A native of Philadelphia who was reared there and in Baltimore, he was a graduate of Loyola High School and attended Loyola College.

He served in the Air Force from 1966 to 1970 in communications intelligence.

Survivors include his wife, the former Gloria Machin; two sons, Aaron Quinn Brophy and Chad Lewis Brophy, both of Newtown; his mother, Gladys Lewis Brophy of Reading, Pa.; two brothers, Robert P. Brophy of Abingdon and Kevin Lewis Brophy of Annville, Pa.; two sisters, Nancy B. Oberreit of Worcester, Mass., and Karen M. Brophy of Northfield, N.J.; and his grandmother, Mary Ellen Lewis of Bel Air.

The family suggests memorial contributions to a trust fund that will be established for the education of his sons.
