Robert Alan Ricci of Manchester, age 73, husband of Connie Ricci, passed away on May 1, 2020 at Middlesex Hospital.

Bob was born July 30, 1946 in Providence, RI to the late Robert and Loretta (Couture) Ricci before settling in Marlboro, MA, where he spent his childhood.

He graduated and attended Syracuse University and had a long and successful career at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

After Bob married Connie, they made their home outside Syracuse, NY, later moving to Glastonbury, CT and finally, Manchester.

Bob was a loving husband, a very proud father and grandpa, a highly sought after giver of advice, a wonderful cook, a meticulous yard keeper, and one of the most intelligent, steadfast and kind men you could ever meet. In addition to his wife, Connie, he is survived, and will be dearly missed by, his daughter Annalee (Ricci) and her husband Jeff Arnold, son Jeff Ricci and his wife Amanda, as well as his grandchildren Gabby, Dylan, Michael and James. Bob is also survived by his wonderful siblings, Don Ricci and his wife Sally, Paul Ricci and his wife Cathy, and Sue Sowden and her husband Scott, along with many loving nieces and nephews. Bob’s family is incredibly grateful for the many acts of kindness and support shown during his illness.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in his memory may also be made to his favorite charities: Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (www.alzfdn.org) or Feeding America (www.feedingamerica.org).

I am so saddened to hear of Bob's passing. Sending my condolences to the Ricci family.

He will be remembered with fondness by his BMS colleagues. Bob was someone we all looked up to. He had a gentle way of guiding you to the right decision without making it for you. Even after retirement, he kept in touch. I will miss him at our semi-regular lunch excursions.

May he rest in peace.
