Celebrating the life of

Ramon Larry Rand

July 17, 1933 – October 4, 2013

 

Ramon Larry Rand

 

Our friend and member of the MCC Hartford family passed from this life peacefully

at home on Friday, October 4th. 2013.  He was the son of the late Joseph and Sadie

Rand of Wilton, ME. Ray was predeceased by his brother Kenneth Rand as well as his

first partner, Eric Tarbox.  Ray is survived by his life partner, Wilson Charlton and also

leaves a son, Lloyd Rand of Litchfield KY; a stepson, Danny Tarbox of Canterbury CT;

a sister, Beatrice Ferrish of Burlington VT; and a brother, Carl Rand of Northport at

Bayside ME.

 

Ray served in the US Navy for twenty two years until his retirement and then worked

for Electric Boat of Groton CT for an additional twenty years.  He was a gifted

computer aficionado, designing and maintaining the websites for many non-profit organizations including MCC Hartford, the CT Prime Timers and the Church of the

Good Shepherd. He was exceedingly generous with his time, talent, and treasure;

donating all that was needed to produce the weekly church bulletin and to run the

website.

 

Ray and his partner Will loved keeping abreast of the latest technology advances and

maintained an impressive media center to enjoy their evenings at home.

 

Donations may be made in his memory to the VNA Healthcare Hospice Unit,

999 Asylum Ave, Hartford, CT 06105

 

Ray was a wonderful friend and a beloved member of the Metropolitan Community

Church of Hartford family.  He will be dearly missed and remembered warmly.  While

our loss is great, heaven has just gained a talented new Webmaster and a beautiful

angel.  May we find comfort in knowing that someday we will meet our dear friend

again.

 

Louis Perrone, 69, of Willimantic, CT died on July 6 at Windham Hospital in

Willimantic.  Born in Hartford, CT on August 8, 1944, Lou was predeceased by

his wife Mary, the love of his life.  Lou was a veteran, proudly serving in the

Marines during the Vietnam Conflict.  Lou is survived by his beloved daughters

Heather Perrone and Stacy Perrone. 

 

Lou was well liked by those at Windham Hospital where he worked as a guard

and later, when diabetes began to affect his legs, as a greeter.  He was a

“no nonsense” kind of guy who made security rounds and ensured the

Emergency Room was calm and everything and everyone had order.  Yet, it

would be Lou that could be seen carefully helping those who are older or

physically challenged in/out of their vehicles.  

 

Lou loved his cat Domino and taking daily walks.  And, at the church, Lou was

a centering post, making sure the altar was set up and ready for worship service

and Bible study.  Lou was a familiar face as an usher during Communion, always

making sure the process was orderly!  Yet, underneath his ‘get it done’ serious

demeanor, Lou was a sensitive man who cared deeply for others.  He would be

the first to offer a ride or make sure someone had whatever they needed.  Lou

simply never said “no” and, even though suffering from health issues, never

complained.  Lou was a good and faithful servant, in every sense and one we

could always (and always did) count on. 

 

Lou was a wonderful friend and a beloved member of the Metropolitan Community

Church of Hartford family.  He will be dearly missed and remembered warmly. 

While our loss is great, heaven has just gained a wonderful and beautiful angel. 

And, we find comfort in knowing that someday we will meet our dear friend again.

MCC is a compassionate community of faith, and a spiritual home where all people can experience the liberating love of God.
