Edmond A. Racicot 77, of North Smithfield, passed away peacefully on August 8, 2019 at Overlook Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. He was the beloved husband of Lucille (Ferschke) Racicot to whom he was married for nearly forty three years. Born in Providence, RI, he was the son of the late Rene and Lucy (Ouellette) Racicot. Edmond served in the United States Army and the Rhode Island National Guard for over 30 years, finally retiring in 2001. After his retirement from the US Army, he worked at Foxwoods Resort and Casino, and finally retired in 2009.
Besides his wife, he leaves their two sons David Racicot and his wife, Jennine of Glendale, RI and Paul Racicot of Scottsdale, AZ; and his son Michael Racicot of Warwick, RI.
Edmond was always a loyal sports fan, with baseball being his favorite. He enjoyed watching the Red Sox and the Bruins, and of course, the Patriots. While his final innings were a struggle, he lived a great life as a devoted serviceman, husband, father, and friend to many. He was always there when anyone was in need. He enjoyed many things, but some of his favorites were household projects, dining out, spending time in Newport, traveling to Florida, and making memories with family and friends.
