Rene moved to New Hampshire in 1996 and began working in the security department at the Elliott Hospital in Manchester. Recently, Rene worked in the Security Department at the Monadnock Community Hospital in Peterborough. Rene loved the personnel and patients he came in contact with at the hospital. The hospital’s caring consideration of Rene’s needs as he struggled with his illness has been awe-inspiring. His family will never be able to repay their kindness and generosity. Rene loved living in Peterborough, surrounded by so many wonderful outdoor activities. He enjoyed biking, hiking, camping and yard sales.

His son Paul and both of his parents predeceased Rene.
His son Nicholas Bacallao of Gainesville, FL survives him.
