Richard A. Renzoni – March 13, 2017


Cohocton: March 13, 2017 at age 62 years. Predeceased by his father Anthony Renzoni. Survived by his wife of 34 years, Naomi Renzoni and children; Emily Renzoni of SC and Zachary (Taylor) Renzoni of Corning, and his dog Bruno. Also survived by his mother Deborah Renzoni and siblings; Jerry Renzoni, Nancy Dennette (Bob Huey), Debbie (Eddie) Paul, Paul Renzoni, and Lisa Aldridge. Several nieces, one nephew, cousins, and friends.

Richard was born on September 10, 1954 in Middletown, CT. He spent his childhood between CT and NH, eventually moving to New York State viewing it as an opportunity to provide his family a better future. Rich found work in Greece, NY at Acro Industries where he continued to work until he was no longer able. Rich worked hard every day to make sure his family that he loved so dearly were always provided for; of which, his family will be forever indebted to him. Richard, often known as Dickie or Sunshine and most importantly Dad to those closest to him, was always willing to lend a helping hand to neighbors and friends alike. The inherited skills from Richard’s father Tony Renzoni gave him the uncanny knowledge base and ability to perform any type of odd job you may come across. Rich enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time with anyone willing to listen to him and his opinionated ways. All those he encountered will miss his voice, his laugh, and his opinions more deeply then could be expressed in words. During this time of grief and loss family and friends of Dickie’s will forever cherish the memories we have with him. He was a tough love kind of man who rarely showed how he felt, but, those who loved him knew how much he cared through his actions. Richard would never have hesitated about volunteering to concrete a basement for a neighbor, or in helping a friend to work on their car or plow their driveway so they could get to work. Dickie often did this without asking for favors or anything in return and he always took the time to help the people he cared about in the best way he knew how. Richard will be remembered for many good deeds like this; surely, too many to count. The future ahead will be a lonely one without him and his generosity towards others. We, his family, hope to see all those who are mourning him at the remembrance picnic which will be held in his honor and announced at a later date this spring.

A Friends & Family Gathering to Celebrate Richard’s Life will be held in the future a date and time to be announced. Memorial contributions may be made to the Cohocton Valley Ambulance Service, PO Box 200, Atlanta, NY 14808. To send a condolence or share a memory please visit:
