Raoul and Ronnie were partners for 56 years. They married in 2004 and have lived happily in Woburn for 44 years.

During his retirement years, Raoul developed a love for the Arts.  He began painting beautiful trees, flowers, and meadows, which led to many visits to all kinds of Art Museums.Tanglewood in the summer and fall were trips they so enjoyed taking in all it’s beauty. When the winter months came, Raoul and Ronnie spent many years in Florida, where many dear friendships were made over time.

Raoul loved life and always took time to see and give thanks for the wonders of creations. Often, when Raoul became sick with cancer, he would say, “I have had a wonderful life – I am so grateful and thankful. I am not afraid. I am ready, thank you.”

We shall miss you dear and faithful friend.
