On January 23, 2019 heaven received another angel, Rene Noel Ricard, 83 of Coventry, CT who passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born December 24, 1935 in Willimantic, CT, son of the late Ernest and Emelda (Gamache) Ricard.

Rene enjoyed many years of camping in Charlestown, RI. He looked forward to spending summer vacations with his family, relatives and friends at the beach for over 40 years. He also loved tending to his vegetable garden each summer and spending time working in his yard. In his spare time, Rene enjoyed woodworking. Over the years he restored an old sleigh, built a cradle and created several knickknacks.

Rene spent 8 years working as a welder at Electric Boat in Groton, CT, he worked 16 years for the Coventry School System and finally retired as a dyer at Deknatel. Rene proudly served his country in the U.S. Army as a Sargent performing cryptographic and meteorology work. He was honorably discharged in 1958.

Rene is survived by his beloved wife Suzanne of 57 years. He leaves his son Jeffrey, daughter Debbi-Sue Clark and husband Dennis, all of Coventry; as well as, his three grandchildren Corey, Morgan and Michael. He also leaves his brother Paul and sister Ida, and was predeceased by his other siblings Eddie, Robert and Blanche.

Rene’s family will be celebrating his life on Tuesday, January, 29th at the Tolland Memorial Funeral Home, 375 Merrow Road (Route 195), Tolland, CT from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 am with a funeral home service at 10am. Burial will follow at St. Mary Cemetery, Coventry. For online condolences, please visit
