Ralph L. Visentin, 64, of Hancock, passed away peacefully at his home on March 8, 2019. He was born in Rockville Centre, NY on December 6, 1954, the son of Frank and Dorothy (Mc Cabe) Visentin.
He graduated from Baldwin High School class of 1973. He was a certified scuba diver and licensed pilot. He enjoyed motorcycles, bike week, sailing and firearms. Lover of animals, birds, gardens, and farm life, he was a jack of all trades, and very handy. He was very proud of his Irish and Italian ancestry. For many years he owned and operated the Visentin bike shop on Long Island before moving to New Hampshire. He was the care taker of a large property in Hancock for over 20 years. He worked many years wiring cable for local companies, and at Robin Hill Farm. Ralph was more than happy to help in any way he could, and did so out of the kindness of his heart never looking for anything in return. He was the best uncle in the world.
Ralph is survived by his nieces Melissa Visentin of Kittery, ME and Karen Haydock of Baldwin NY; his nephew Adam Visentin of Marblehead, MA; his brother-in- law Dick Haydock of Baldwin. He is also survived by Julia, Jonathan & Jamie Jimenez and of Peterborough, NH, Sara and Scott Chretien of Concord, NH, and Matt and Lori Smith of Hancock, NH. He will also be missed by many close friends, including Brian Giammarino and Andrew Wood, as well as many co-workers.
Ralph was predeceased by his sister Eileen Visentin, his nephew Kyle Haydock, his beloved dogs Cali, Carson, Jenna 1 and 2 and many other loved cats and dogs.
