Obituary for Richard V. Poisson

August 6, 1946 - September 1, 2019
Deerfield, New Hampshire | Age 73


Richard V. Poisson, 73, of Deerfield, died peacefully at his residence on September 1, 2019, after a period of declining health, surrounded by his loving family.
Born August 6, 1946, he was the son of the late Alphonse and Rose (Janelle) Poisson. He was a graduate of Manchester High School West and was a member of the 3rd battalion, 197th field artillery unit of the Manchester Army National Guard, activated to service in Vietnam from September 1968 to August 1969. He was honorably discharged at the rank of Specialist.
Richard worked for many years as a building contractor and driver. He was employed as a driver with Pinard Waste Systems for 12 years before retiring in 2010.
Richard was a very hard worker. He was a very generous, selfless, and humble man who enjoyed living a simple life and would help anyone, at any time. He had a great sense of humor and was always the life of the party. In his spare time, Richard enjoyed riding his motorcycle, hunting, fishing, and spending time outdoors. His grandchildren were his greatest joy and spending time with them was most important to him. Above all, he will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, cousin, uncle, and friend.
Family includes his beloved wife of 49 years, Constance P. (Houle) Poisson of Deerfield; three children, Jeffrey R. Poisson and wife Tamara of Deerfield, Tammy D. Browne and husband Joseph of Deerfield; and Shauna I. Brown and husband Nathan of Deerfield; six grandchildren, Morgan, Nathan, Logan, Taryn, Madison, and Hannah; two sisters, Irene Wright of New Boston, and Pauline Levesque of Nashua; two brothers, Maurice Poisson and wife Denise of Florida, and Edward Poisson and wife Patricia of Manchester; his mother-in-law, Pauline Houle of Goffstown; many sisters and brothers-in-law; and several cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was predeceased by both parents; and his brother, Roger Poisson.
