Condolence From: Lia
Condolence: I met Rene the first time at Newark airport in July 1996 when I came to his family to work as a nanny . Rene stood there with a sign with my name on it so I wouldn’t feel insecure. He had always something funny to say and I’m so happy that I got to meet him again last year at Alex wedding .. he was the same , telling jokes and he was so proud of his sons. I’m sending my love to Jean, Alex , Brandon and Corey and I’m so very sorry for your loss..

Condolence: Rivera Family,

Our deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved husband and father. His loss will be felt by all and is immeasurable.

Rene was more than a manager and co-worker, but a true friend with a deep heart. It is our honor to have been associated with him and call him friend for over twenty years. He, himself, may not have realized how much he touched peoples lives, but that was part of his humble character. He had a special way of telling stories. A single, short conversation would cover many topics, usually ending in a laugh. Still, he could be counted on in serious matters.

Above all, family meant most. He kept us up to date on the latest with his sons Alex, Brandon, and Cory and did so as a proud father.

Goodbye, old friend. Your absence creates a void that can never be filled.

Joe and Alicia Rapach

Condolence: My condolences to the Rivera family. I was hired by Rene in October and even though I only knew him for a short period of time, his positive nature made me a better person. R.I.P. Rene Rivera.
