Richard J. Gagnon

Richard J. Gagnon, 66, of Manchester, died unexpectedly on June 1, 2022, at his residence.

Born in Manchester on January 22, 1956, he was the son of the late Robert Gagnon and Cecilia (Gagnon) Lacasse.  He was a graduate of Lasallette Seminary in Enfield, NH.  Dick worked as a manager for Nashua Public Access TV for over 10 years and was a lifelong resident of the Queen City.

Dick enjoyed woodworking and was looking forward to having his own shop in retirement.  He was a very caring, easy going person who had many friends, and a great sense of humor. His granddaughters were the light in his life and he adored and loved them with his whole heart.  Dick lived a positive lifestyle and was well known as an Optimist.  Many people who knew Dick saw how proud he was of his daughter's dance studio and he was always known as LRD's #1 fan.  Above all else, he will be remembered as a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
