John G. Rheault - Fitchburg, Mass.

John G. Rheault, 48, of Fitchburg, formerly of Lincoln, R.I., passed away in his home after a courageous battle with kidney cancer.

John was born in Central Falls, Rhode Island, on April 5, 1966, a son of the late Joseph Robert and Jeannine (Lippe) Rheault. He graduated from Lincoln High School in Rhode Island.

John loved construction and hands on work; he was a home renovator by trade. John, a man of strong faith, was a parishioner of Saint Leo’s Church in Leominster.

He loved the outdoors, especially the beach. His best of times were spent visiting Rhode Island with his wife Tina and enjoying the ocean. John was an avid fisherman and a loyal and enthusiastic Seattle Seahawks fan. Family was everything to John; his two granddaughters were his world.

John leaves his wife, Tina (Cooley) of Fitchburg; his stepchildren, Kelley Casey of Leominster and Michael Testa of Gardner; two grandchildren, Emma Lynn, the apple of his eye, and Alaynah Rose, his little sweetheart. He also leaves many extended family members and close friends.
