Obituary

John E. Rider, 82, of Rockville, CT passed peacefully at home on April 7, 2021 with his loving daughters and family at his side. John was born in Hartford, CT on November 8, 1938 to Raymond and Sarah (Grant) Rider. He lived in Rockville most of his life. John graduated Rockville High and worked for Palymer Films in Rockville and Watson Foods in West Haven, CT his whole life. He married the love of his life Joan (Rice) Rider on August 6, 1960. They met at Crystal Lake, CT, roller skating. They both enjoyed the outdoors, camping at Black Pond and Beaver Pines in Woodstock, CT. Johns passion was CB radio and hunting.

John is predeceased by his wife Joan (Rice) Rider, brother Tom Rider and grandson Allen Miller. We would like to thank the Visiting Nurses for their hard work and support.
Relatives and friends may join the family on Monday, April 12, 2021 between 4pm-6pm at the Burke-Fortin Funeral Home, 76 Prospect Street, Rockville, CT.

So sad to hear of John's passing. I remember him and his deceased wife fondly. I have many happy memories during our camping days and get togethers.
