Obituary for Henri Tringle Jr.

Henri Oscar Tringle Jr., 70 of Melbourne, FL., passed away at home March 11, 2017. He was born May 20, 1946 in Farhnam, Quebec, Canada to Henri Tringle Sr. and Janet Corey.

Henri graduated from Richford High School in 1964 and moved to Connecticut right after graduating. He took machining courses in Connecticut. He returned to Vermont in 1968 to help his father on the farm. After being injured in a serious accident on the farm Henri gave up farming and went back to work as a machinist in 1975 at Space Research Corporation in Highwater, Quebec. He went on to earn a diploma in CNC Programming from the University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.

Henri started his career as a machinist and went on to become a plant manager and retired in 2008 as a freelance engineering consultant. He lived his dream by traveling around the world and spent time working in Brussels, Spain, Amsterdam, Italy and China. He had a zest for life and lived it to the fullest and “did it his way.” He loved the life that he made for himself in Florida and thoroughly enjoyed entertaining family when they came to visit. He loved spending time with his family and is proud of the legacy he had left behind.

Henri is survived by his wife, Roberta Lessard whom he married in 1982. His children, Marlene (Bruce) Mercy, Henri Tringle III and his fiancée Ann Rourke, Michelle and Nicole Tringle. Grandchildren, Cody and Kyle (Ashley) Mercy, Henri Tringle IV, Luciano Rourke and Scarlett Tringle and Evan and Avery Paradis. His siblings, Richard Tringle, Roseanna Coffy and Kelly Tringle.
