Ronnie T. Houle, 69, of Manchester, passed away unexpectedly on July 28, 2023. He is the beloved husband of Jocelyne “Joyce” (Larochelle) Houle, with whom he shared over 47 years of marriage.
Ronnie was born on July 19, 1954 in West Stewartstown to the late Gerald and Simonne (Sage) Houle and spent most of his life in Manchester. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and retired from the Boston Carpenter Union 218 after over 33 years of employment.
Ronnie was a man whose zest for life was as vibrant as his passion for hunting and sports, particularly his beloved Patriots. Ronnie’s heart overflowed with love for his grandchildren, cherishing every moment with them. He especially loved to watch them participate in their sports and hobbies. He had an infectious energy that made him the life of every party he attended, leaving laughter and joy in his wake. Beyond his hunting and sports prowess, Ronnie became renowned for "the toe incident," a story that will leave a lasting mark on his close friends and family. His humor and love will be deeply missed.
Along with his wife Joyce, Ronnie is survived by his daughters, Tina Lesieur and her husband Larry, and Nicole Duval and her husband Lucas all of Manchester; his grandchildren, Dominick, Devin, Andrew, and Ashlynn; sisters, Carol Ashby and her husband Real, Sue Moulton and her husband Steve, and Christine Pratte and her husband Jeff; many nieces, nephews, and extended family; and last, but certainly not least, his cherished cat Midnight.
He is predeceased by his parents, Gerald and Simonne, and brother Michael Houle.
