Nelson Rivera, 70, a longtime Beacon resident, recently of Willimantic, CT, passed away peacefully on May 28, 2019. He was born on March 26, 1949 in Añasco, PR, son of the late Vidal Rivera and Amparo Osuba.

Nelson is survived by his wife, Gloria Rodrigues; and his 6 children: Oneida Rivera, Nelson Rivera Jr., Marisol Rivera, William Rivera, Madeline Rivera and Nayely Rivera. He is also survived by his 7 grandchildren & 6 great-grandchildren. Nelson was predeceased by 2 grandchildren.

Nelson worked many years as a laborer, he was truly a hard-worker with a big heart. And when that golden heart stopped beating, and those hard-working hands were at rest; God broke our hearts to prove he only takes the best.

His Family & Friends will gather on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the LIBBY FUNERAL HOME, 55 Teller Avenue, Beacon, where a Funeral Service will be held at 12 Noon, followed by interment to St. Joachim Cemetery, Beacon.

I don’t even know where to start.. so hard to sit here and write to you and not talk to you😢 . Thank you for always looking for me after papi died and loving me as one of your own. You were part of several special events in my life that papi wasn’t there for which I will forever be grateful. You were loving, funny, caring and so much more. You hold a SUPER special place in my heart forever padrino. As much as it hurts that you are not with us I’m happy you are finally home. I know you are happy, healthy and dancing away with your perfect feet😂. I know I will be seeing you in my dreams. Bendición I love you always.

I have so many memories of Tio I don’t even know where to begin. He was always ready to have a good time. When he lived in Beacon we were always together , I’ll never forget the day he had bought his Ferro; we must have drove up and down Main Street at least 50 times playing his Spanish music. Thinking we were all that. Lol. He was so proud that he was able to buy that car. He was that Uncle you can say anything to and never snitched us out. Lots of good times. Even when he left and moved to Connecticut he always made it a point to stay in touch because family meant everything to him. I’m going to miss you something terrible but I know your in a better place and not suffering anymore. I love you Always Tio , I will never forget you or your Toe. Lol. That’s a family joke that’s gonna last for ever. Rip Tio Nelson, I’m not gonna say goodbye because I know I will see you again. 😘
